In a democratic society, the media plays a vital role. The media is supposed to make sure that voters are well informed by giving them news, facts and balanced opinions about how the government is managed. The now confirmed blatant media failure gave Joe Biden an apparent win in the presidential election.
If voters have less than complete information, the decisions made are likely to be less than optimal. In an election for president, the lack of complete information means the winner of the election might not be the person that the majority of voters in each state actually want to be president.
The Media Research Center (MRC) , which has been America’s premium media watchdog since 1987, with a commitment to neutralizing the leftist bias, recently released a commissioned poll, Special Report: The Stealing of the Presidency, 2020.
The study surveyed 1,750 people who voted for Biden in seven swing states: Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. The results clearly show how the media’s failure to provide complete, unbiased information to the public, resulted in voters selecting the wrong candidate.
There were eight stories about negative aspects of Biden performance or positive Trump performance, that Americans who cast their vote for Biden were completely unaware of. In total 82% of Biden voters were unaware of at least one of the stories. More importantly, 17% of Biden voters, “would have changed their vote if they had been aware of one or more of these very important stories.”
According to Brent Bozell, founder and president of the MRC, had the eight stories received adequate media coverage, “Trump would have won every single contested race in America. Of the six contested races, he would have won every single one, and he would have had at least 311 electoral votes.”
Regarding negative information about Biden, the survey found that 35% of Biden voters did not know about the sexual misconduct allegations from Tara Reade. About 9% of those voters said they would have changed their vote had they know about Reade. That alone could have swung the election to President Trump.
More than 45% of Biden voters did not know about the dealings of Biden’s son Hunter with China, Ukraine and other foreign entities. The voters also did know about Joe Biden’s direct involvement in these deals.
Some of the stories involved very positive news about President Trump. For instance, nearly 40% of Biden voters were unaware of Trump’s record-breaking employment numbers, prior to the Coronavirus, nor did they know of the record-breaking recovery that Trump’s policies produced.
More than 50% of Biden voters were unaware that the US had become energy independent. More than 36% of those voters were not aware that Trump’s policies led to Operation Warp Speed. As we see today, this policy has resulted in at least six vaccines being produced, tested and nearly approved within one year of the virus coming to America.
The media should be ashamed. They have done a disservice to the American people that appears to have resulted in a president who does not have the support of the majority of the people in each state. If the 17% of Biden voters were informed of these vital stories, they would not have voted for him, meaning Biden would have only 66 million votes.
Even if none of them voted for Trump, the president would still have had 7 million more votes than Biden. If Biden is sworn in as president his views and policies will not represent the majority.
In a democratic society, this is a disaster. This country was founded because the minority ruled in other countries and the majority suffered. In order for the great, very successful, American experiment in Democracy to continue to progress, an informed electorate is vital.
History will note that in 2020, the media was so consumed with defeating President Trump that they hid stories from the public and provided biased information for much of what they did report. For the future of the country, let’s all hope this changes.
