Trump Collusion Narrative and Rice’s Spy Story Both Gone 
On April 7, 2017 President Donald Trump launched an attack against Russian-backed Syria effectively ending an eight-months-long media narrative as well recent revelation related to the narrative that the media didn’t want to cover.   
Since April 7th the mainstream media accusation that President Trump colluded with Russia to sway the 2016 presidential election has all but disappeared and leaves critics of the media wondering if there was any real evidence of claim to begin with.    
 The story of the Obama administration spying on the Trump transition team also seems to have disappeared as well, due to the attack on Syria being a distraction to the story itself, thus allowing such media outlets as CNN and MSNBC to avoid it altogether. 
 After more than eight months of continuous media coverage of the speculated Trump-Russia collusion, a Google search reveals that there have been no new developments or stories regarding the matter since April 6th.    
 The attack on Syria hampers relations between the United States and Russia which makes it almost impossible to continue running a story that was based solely on speculation from the beginning.   This seems to confirm the claim of former Trump advisor, Carter Page, who told Fox news that the allegations of collusion was nothing more than “propaganda driven by a false narrative” on March 30, 2017. 
 Since  March 4, 2017 much of the mainstream media has mocked President Trump  for accusing the Obama administration of spying on him and his transition team during the last days of Obama’s presidency.    The media portrayed the announcement from Trump as baseless and without evidence with the intent to throw the media off the collusion story.   
 However,  a month later, on April 3, 2017 Trump’s allegation was confirmed when Susan Rice admitted to “unmasking” or revealing the identities of Trump and members of his team, in communications with foreign offices under surveillance.   This is a claim that she vehemently denied back in January during an interview with PBS network.    
While the attack on Syria is in direct conflict with the narrative, therefore destroying it,  it is likely that the media outlets failure to provide more coverage for the Susan Rice admission is due to the convenient distraction that the attack poses.
