For John, BLUF: Yes, the media played a big role the outcome of the Presidential Election. Nothing to see here; just move along.
From PJ Media, by Mr Tyler O'Neil, 24 November 2020.
Here is the lede plus two:
According to an explosive new study the Media Research Center (MRC) released on Tuesday, the legacy media’s suppression of eight key election-related news stories effectively handed the presidential election to Democrat Joe Biden. According to a poll conducted by The Polling Company on behalf of MRC, a whopping 17 percent of Americans who voted for Joe Biden would not have done so had they been aware of just one of these stories.News is curated for an objective. The objective depends upon who is in charge. To resist curation it helps to identify what goals the various media are pursuing.
Had the legacy media not buried these stories, Trump would have won 311 electoral votes, the study claims.
“The national news media stole this election, as far as I’m concerned, they deliberately stole it from President Trump,” MRC President Brent Bozell said in a call with reporters. “It is absolutely unequivocal” that the biased media coverage “cost Donald Trump the election.”
The way to fight back is to read (and listen) widely and to share.
