Why media has been fixated on COVID-19
Unrelenting virus coverage allowed your paper and the mainstream media to fill your pages and network time slots to effectively avoid covering Donald Trump’s successes and Joe Biden’s scandals; and to use the virus to support state efforts to relax election integrity safeguards, opening the door to rampant fraud.
Trump successes: Record breaking economic growth; historic peace agreements; Energy independence; Operation Warp Speed, etc., etc. Some Biden scandals: Tara Reade’s serious sexual assault allegations; Biden’s real quid-pro-quo; financial scandals enveloping him and his son.
Media and big tech suppression of facts, which, according to you, “are the wares in which journalists trade,” led to one of every six Biden voters surveyed (The Polling Co.) stating they would have abandoned the Democratic candidate had they known the facts about one or more of these news stories. A shift of this magnitude would have changed the outcome in all six battleground states, and Trump would have comfortably won a second term — even overcoming the massive fraud.
Your statement, “But for the time being, the facts tell us the opposite” — really? What about vote counting that stopped in key battleground states? The suitcases of ballots pulled from under the table? The thousands of affidavits; and all the data anomalies suggesting something is amiss. Did you investigate and report on these?
Apparently facts don’t matter to a biased, narrative driven media. Yes, the pandemic is real and it’s deadly, but it will be overcome. The loss of our great republic is another matter, and when the integrity of our election process is compromised, we run the very risk of losing our country!
When people are given one-sided information, with crucial facts omitted, then the real power to choose has been stolen from them. Yes Justin, the corrupt media, is “the enemy of the people.”
