If you wonder why so many of your fellow Americans don’t seem to understand why anyone would oppose something called the “For the People Act” or think that trying to make elections honest is “voter suppression,” you can partially thank the Democrat Party press agents known as the “news media.”

Newsbusters.org analyzed the NBC, CBS and ABC evening news from March 1 to June 10th. They found that coverage of states’ attempts to increase election integrity received 96% negative coverage. They were routinely depicted as voting “restrictions,” even though none of them prevent any eligible person from voting, and many expand voting opportunities. Coverage was also couched in partisan terms, comparing these laws to Jim Crow and claiming that “many are calling them racist” and that “Black and brown voters are screaming that this is voter suppression” (ABC.)

On the other hand, from the networks’ coverage of the Democrats’ “For the People Act” (or as I more accurately call it, the “Legalize Vote Fraud Act”), you’d think there was no legitimate criticism of that at all. They depicted it as needed to prevent voter suppression, even though turnout in 2020 was the highest since 1900. Also, as noted by Rich Lowry at National Review, it’s backers claim it would increase confidence in the accuracy of elections even though it bans states from updating voter rolls and abolishes voter ID laws (which are favored by a majority of blacks, FYI.)

Even when Sen. Joe Manchin announced his opposition to the bill, a major story, the networks gave it no air time.

It shows that in an age when you can get practically anything delivered, the people who claim to be delivering the news are the only ones not delivering.

    Sometimes your news letter is the one thing that gives me hope that people see what is happening. It usually always gets a chuckle even when I don't really feel like it. Thanks for what you do!

    Didn't a few of the States illegally change their constitution weeks before the election in 2020? Who is holding them accountable for tampering with the Constitution? Georgia did it and quickly hid it after the election. I know their were more. Can we get a LIST of all the members of congress that voted to certify the election in 2020, they knew there were too many irregularities that occurred during and before the election. They need to be voted out of congress. What are the States doing to clean up their voting roles so that Dead people don't continue to vote?

    It's backers claim it would increase confidence in the accuracy of elections is because if any Republican won any race they'd know something went wrong with their most extensive fraud team ever put together.
    Then the lil boot lickers or media as some call them would do their part and tar and feather that deplorable Republican for cheating to win a race.

    The mass media are very consistent in their suppression of the truth, and are continually harping that anything that opposes their bias is "unscientific" or based on "myth." This is simply a reflection of their consistent anti Trump bias since Trump won the election in 2016.

    The bill might have stood a chance of passing if the Democrats hadn't played their hand so badly. In making their case as to why this bill was so critical, they doubled down on stupid and claimed it was to help minorities, who face obstacles in obtaining state I.D.s, and often have no access to the internet. Really? In 2021? What the Democrats managed to accomplish was to alienate black voters who were rightfully offended by the Dems' low estimation of them.

    I seem to remember a few years ago laws were passed that were generally referred to as truth in advertising.
    Why don't we have truth in news reporting laws?
