If the "hacking story" is stripped of its misdirection noise, the bottom line is: Obama and the establishment are deeply upset that the "mainstream" corporate media have lost their hold on people's minds and that people themselves began forming and molding their views on the social media by themselves. In other words, the true story is not about Russia or even about Putin (his personality cult is still being propped up by the media and the West). The true story is about what, several years ago, Brzezinski decried as the "unprecedented global awakening" of the people.
Obama: “You have I think the clear example of how, if we're not vigilant, foreign countries can have an impact on the political debate in the United States in ways that might not have been true 10, 20, 30 years ago ... because so many people are skeptical of mainstream news organizations that everything's true and everything's false. ...I think that I underestimated the degree to which, in this new information age, it is possible for misinformation, for cyberhacking and so forth to have an impact on our open societies, our open systems, to insinuate themselves into our democratic practices in ways that I think are accelerating."
