After months of obsessive coverage of "Russiagate," the mainstream media is reminding the world of its hypocrisy once again as it ignores the annual meeting of one of the most secretive and powerful organizations of the global elite — Bilderberg.
The 65th annual Bilderberg Meeting, which has been held in locations around the world throughout the years, kicked off on Thursday in Chantilly, Virginia. Despite a prestigious guest list of around 130 attendees—who will arguably have more of a global influence than a few hypothetical Russian hackers—the meeting has escaped the mainstream media's radar in the United States.
The guest list boasts a variety of politicians and financiers, including Christine Lagarde, managing director of the International Monetary Fund; José Manuel Barroso, chairman of Goldman Sachs International; Jens Stoltenberg, secretary general of NATO; and Cui Tiankai, China's ambassador to the U.S.
While this year's location is less than 30 miles from the White House, and the group is set to discuss the current status of the Trump Administration, President Trump himself was not included on the list of expected guests.
