In the age of POTUS Donald Trump, the garbage establishment media will pull out all stops, including starting World War III if necessary, just to ‘get’ him.

Case in point: Trump lashed out The New York Times on Saturday over a story claiming his administration has been ramping up cyberattacks against Russian power infrastructure, calling the report untrue and labeling it a “virtual act of treason.”

The paper reported that the U.S. is increasingly targeting the Russian electric power grid, including the insertion of code designed to debilitate it on command:

The United States is stepping up digital incursions into Russia’s electric power grid in a warning to President Vladimir V. Putin and a demonstration of how the Trump administration is using new authorities to deploy cybertools more aggressively, current and former government officials said.

In interviews over the past three months, the officials described the previously unreported deployment of American computer code inside Russia’s grid and other targets as a classified companion to more publicly discussed action directed at Moscow’s disinformation and hacking units around the 2018 midterm elections.

The Times noted further that the operation is the first time the U.S. has targeted the electric grid of a foreign power. The paper also cited a pair of administration officials who said that the president was allegedly never briefed about the operation.

Trump lashed out at the Times report on Twitter, writing, “Do you believe that the Failing New York Times just did a story stating that the United States is substantially increasing Cyber Attacks on Russia. This is a virtual act of Treason by a once great paper so desperate for a story, any story, even if bad for our Country,” The Hill reported.

In addition, Trump claimed the story was “NOT TRUE.”

“Anything goes with our Corrupt News Media today,” he added, according to The Hill. “They will do, or say, whatever it takes, with not even the slightest thought of consequence! These are true cowards and without doubt, THE ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE!”

For its part, the Times responded to the president on Twitter as well, saying that “accusing the press of treason is dangerous,” The Daily Caller noted.

The Times, once again, just put us all at risk and stoked war with Russia
