While the Biden administration and business leaders are accusing Georgia lawmakers of rigging its future elections, they’re ignoring the real culprits.
Business mainstream news and social media giants are the real impediments to free and fair elections, so much so that they’ve become the propaganda arm of the Democratic National Committee.
For decades CBS News’ “60 Minutes” was one of network TV’s premier investigative news magazines. This came to a crashing halt Sunday when it aired a hit piece aimed at Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis.
, the section left audiences with the impression that the governor gave the Publix supermarket chain a permit to dispense COVID vaccines in exchange for its large contribution to a DeSantis political action committee.
The manager of the Florida State Division of Emergency Management (FLSERT) and the Palm Beach county mayor, both of whom are Democrats, said the”60 Minutes” report was intentionally false.
“absolute malarkey” and “utter nonsense,” adding that “no one from the Governor’s office suggested Publix.”
, adding”I watched the 60 Minutes segment on Palm Beach County last night and feel compelled to issue this statement. The report was not just based on bad information — it was intentionally false.”
, stating that”beyond spotlighting the public finance records, ’60 Minutes’ never provided any substantive evidence to support the substantial assertion and link the donation with the partnership.”
Not all left-leaning media was doubtful, however.
Axios ignored the outrageous claims and concentrated instead on the governor’s reaction to them.
“a political gift” into DeSantis, and claimed he had been using it to grab”on a juicy chance to ingratiate himself with the GOP base by bashing the media.”
The Federalist senior editor Mollie Hemingway suggested that the actual reason for the hit job was that the”R” after DeSantis’ title, coupled with his refusal to follow the protocols of the Biden administration by placing seniors in the front of the vaccination line.
(Gasp: large grocery chain gives political contributions!) The FL Governor’s real crime? Not following the hysterical lead of the propaganda press, thereby making them look bad.”
Former President Trump’s role in brokering the Abraham Accords, which are forming the foundation for a lasting peace in the Middle East.
Apart from Newsmax’s Emerald Robinson, Fox News Channel’s Peter Doocy, and Matt Lee, The Associated Press’ State Department reporter, anything the Biden administration says, news outlets run with.
Also making headlines is Georgia’s new election reform legislation, which the Biden government refers to as”voter suppression.”
However, Georgia’s new law is a common-sense step that bears little difference from election legislation already enacted in the majority of the states.
But after Biden denounced it as”Jim Crow on steroids,” a compliant Press agreed, and the Major League Baseball Players Association Transferred the 2021 All-Star Match from Atlanta to Denver.
Important corporations like Delta Air Lines and Coca-Cola also fell into line with the government’s claims and denounced the new law, prompting MSNBC to list those corporations that haven’t followed suit.
Doxing businesses that haven’t gone is barely”journalism.” It’s political activism.
Social networking is also playing a role.
That Big Tech swung some 2.6 million votes to Hillary Clinton in 2016, but it wasn’t enough. So they vowed to do better in 2020. And they did.
Social media routinely”fact-checked” President Trump’s statements, and blocked the Hunter Biden laptop story, a blockbuster that that implicated Joe Biden and should have overwhelmingly swung the election in Trump’s favor.
That and similar activities which amount to political activism would be the true cause of unfair elections in 21st century America.
If media outlets truly seek a culprit, they ought to look in a mirror.
