The so-called mainstream media are giddy that Joe Biden is on schedule to become the next president.
On election night, they were quick to call states for Biden and slow to call states for Donald Trump.
Now the press got caught pushing fake news about Biden’s election outcome.
Joe Biden is on tap to become president despite concerning voter irregularities.
The press was in the bag for Biden during the general election every step of the way.
They suppressed positive stories about Trump and refused to cover negative stories about Biden, which ultimately flipped the election in Biden’s favor.
Now that the Democrats and their friends in the media are convinced Biden won, they’re already creating fake narratives about how “historic” his victory was.
Time Magazine writer Charlotte Alter recently appeared on “Reliable Sources” with Brian Stelter and told a big lie about the 2020 election.
While defending Time’s decision to name Biden and Kamala Harris “Person of the Year,” Alter said, “Biden and Harris won overwhelmingly, by a popular vote margin not seen since FDR in 1932.”
This is totally false.
Biden’s vote lead was 7 million with a 4.5% margin of victory.
And, in fact, there have been 13 presidential elections since 1932 that’s had bigger margins of victory than Biden.
For example, Ronald Reagan won by 8.1 million votes (9.6%) in 1980 and 16.9 million votes (18.2%) in 1984.
Alter made waves last year when she wrote that she, congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and other millennials “never experienced American prosperity.”
Alter’s father is an author, MSNBC political analyst, and former Newsweek columnist, and her mother was a long-time television executive producer.
Alter, a Harvard graduate, is the poster child for privilege.
The corporate press is desperate to frame Biden’s victory as a mandate, but it wasn’t.
Trump received 11 million more votes from 2016, garnered the largest Republican share of the nonwhite vote since 1960, and won 16 out of 17 bellwether counties.
Republicans also dominated down-ballot and maintained control of state legislatures.
By virtually every statistical indicator, Trump should have won the election easily.
But even still, Biden is entering the White House under a cloud of voter irregularities, a weakened majority in the House, a likely Republican-controlled Senate, and a fractious progressive caucus within his party.
And the Democrats’ fear-mongering about the Wuhan virus has people dangerously close to running out of patience.
The draconian lockdowns are destroying people’s lives and livelihoods with no end in sight.
