The corporate press is desperate to nudge Joe Biden into the White House.
Court challenges to voter irregularities have put a brake on the coronation.
And one CNN host said something about the 2020 election that came back to bite him.
There appears to be mounting evidence of potential voter fraud in the election, but the so-called mainstream media are determined to shoot down any claims that could undermine Biden’s tenuous victory.
The Democrats and their media allies have sworn up and down that the election was completely above board, but prior to the election, they griped about Trump subverting the integrity of the election.
They promoted conspiracy theories about mailboxes being destroyed and even mail trucks being pilfered.
Now the narrative has flipped and to question the integrity of an election is borderline treasonous.
CNN host Jake Tapper has been promoting a similar message, suggesting that Trump supporters may suffer when trying to find future employment.
“I truly sympathize with those dealing with losing — it’s not easy — but at a certain point one has to think not only about what’s best for the nation (peaceful transfer of power) but how any future employers might see your character defined during adversity.”
But Tapper was singing a different tune in 2000 when Al Gore challenged George W. Bush’s electoral victory; the court challenges and recount in Florida took 36 days.

Democrats as well as the corporate press need somewhere to aim their Trump Derangement Syndrome, so they’re targeting anybody affiliated with Trump.
Tapper isn’t the only one.
Several members of the press have talked about compiling lists of Trump associates, as did Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
The corporate media are completely over-the-top with their anti-Trump rhetoric.
With Biden in the White House, media companies will need a new villain to drive their coverage all day.
The corporate press was in trouble during the Obama era because they covered his administration with kid gloves.
But Trump gave all of the media companies a bump in viewership and circulation.
Without Trump, the corporate press is primed for a nosedive.
CNN president Jeff Zucker could be on the way out, and there are reports that AT&T is interested in selling off the news network.
If the Democrats insist upon attacking everyone who supported Trump, they’ll only strengthen the backlash they saw in the 2020 election down ballot.
