The head of a media surveillance organization says the media’s failure to cover eight stories could be why President Donald Trump lost the election.
“The media can talk about Donald Trump all day and about things he’s doing wrong all day,” said Brent Bozell, founder and president of the media research center, on a call on Tuesday, revealing a poll the center commissioned had: “Special Report: The Theft of the Presidency, 2020.”
“It is absolutely clear, the evidence that it was the national news movement that deliberately, and I am deliberately underlining, the goal of not telling the public about these stories that no one can question,” Bozell said. “And now we’re showing the evidence that the election cost Donald Trump.”
The media research center polled voters on eight news items that the center viewed as “important issues that our ongoing analysis had shown the liberal news media was not treating properly,” according to a report by Rich Noyes, research director at the media research center.
The eight topics included three negative topics about the Biden Harris ticket, including Senator Kamala Harris’ liberal views and sexual assault allegations faced by former Vice President Joe Biden, as well as five positive reports about the Trump administration, including 33.1% economic growth and the Middle East Peace Agreement.
Overall, the survey found that 17% of those who voted for Biden “would have changed their vote if they had known one or more of these important stories,” said Noyes.
If the eight stories had been covered, “Trump would have won every single race in America,” Bozell said. “He would have won any of the six races and would have had at least 311 votes.”
The Media Research Center hired the Polling Co. to interview 1,750 people who voted for Biden in seven swing states: Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. Six of these states appear to have been won by Biden, with the exception of North Carolina.
The poll found that 82% of people who voted for Biden didn’t know at least one of the eight stories.
For example, the poll found that 35.4% of people who voted for Biden were unaware of Tara Reade’s allegations, who said Biden sexually assaulted her in the 1990s.
In a May statement, Biden said Reade’s allegations were false. “I would like to respond to allegations made by a former employee that I committed misconduct 27 years ago,” said Biden. “You are not true. That never happened. “
If they had known of Tara Reade’s sexual assault allegations, 8.9% said they would have changed their vote – either switched to Trump or a third party candidate, not elected a presidential candidate, or not elected at all. Taken by itself, this would have reversed all six swing states Biden won (Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin) and given the president a victory with 311 Electoral College votes.
Noyes also noted that the lack of media coverage of the Trump administration’s success appears to have had an impact on voters.
“The five job reports prior to the June 5th-October 2nd elections showed that 11,161,000 jobs were created in the extraordinary flashback of the pandemic recession,” Noyes wrote, adding:
However, a large number of Biden voters (39.4%) said they were unaware of this performance. If they did, 5.4% said they would have changed their voice; This would have brought Arizona, Georgia, Nevada, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin to Trump, who would have won by 295 votes.
Adam Brandon, president of FreedomWorks, a grassroots political group that Bozell joined, said the survey results illustrate the influence of the media.
“It’s very clear that the media has not been objective about this race,” said Brandon. “This was a complete failure of the fourth state at the national level. I believe their poll results alone should embarrass them so much that they start re-looking at their model. “
Of the people who voted for Biden, 45.1% said they knew nothing about the business relationships in question from Hunter Biden, the son of Joe Biden, where the New York Post claimed in an October 14 article, one Email about What Is Believed Younger Biden’s laptop indicated that Hunter Biden introduced his father to a Ukrainian businessman from Burisma. Hunter Biden was a board member of the Ukraine-based natural gas company.
One poll read: “When you cast your vote for president, you knew there was evidence, including banking, which the FBI is currently investigating, directly relating Joe Biden and his family to a corrupt financial arrangement between a Chinese company bring ties to the Chinese Communist Party that were secretly supposed to bring tens of millions in profits to the Biden family? ”
45.1% of those who voted for Biden said they did not know.
During the last presidential debate in October, Biden defended his son, saying, “Nothing was unethical” about Hunter Biden’s position on Burisma’s board of directors. “My son didn’t make any money with China. The only man who made money from China was this man, ”said Joe Biden.
9.4% of the Biden voters said they would not have voted for Biden if they had known “to hand over all six swing states that he won to Trump and give the President 311 votes”, so the Media Research Center.
“The scandal, I think, points to what may be the biggest scandal in history when it comes to the government’s claim that the Vice President of the United States actually filled his pockets with seedy deals with Chinese Communist companies.” Said Bozell.
“The Biden laptop supposedly confirms all of this. So you’d have thought the same media would go wild [during] The Kavanaugh hearings, at which there was no evidence, would go insane over this one. “
