It’s no secret that in the days leading up to the 2020 election, the mainstream media made what appeared to be a coordinated effort to suppress negative news stories with regard to former Vice President Joe Biden — namely the scandal involving his son, Hunter Biden.
According to the Washington Examiner, a bombshell new survey of Americans who voted for Biden revealed that they were unaware of many of the negative news stories involving Biden and going even further, indicated that they would have not voted for Biden had they been aware. The number of people who indicated that they would have not voted for Biden would have been more than enough to secure a second term for President Donald Trump.
Several recent polls proved that Biden voters were not only unaware of various scandals or other negative items concerning Biden, but were also not aware of a number of achievements by Trump.
A poll from Media Research Center that was conducted by McLaughlin & Associates indicated that 4.6 percent of those surveyed would have switched their votes from Biden to Trump had they been aware of Hunter Biden’s influence-peddling scandal abroad. That number would have easily secured victory for Trump in the 2020 election.
Another poll conducted by the Polling Company for MRC told a similar story, with 17 percent of respondents indicating that they would have changed their vote if they’d been aware of the negative coverage of the Bidens’ scandals.
That poll was conducted in nearly all of the must-win battleground states and like in the first poll, if that many people had switched their vote, it would have again secured Trump an easy victory.
Media Research Center founder Brent Bozell ripped the mainstream media’s apparent collaboration to sway the vote in their favor, saying “Had they done their jobs, Donald Trump won the election.”
As Rich Noyes from Newsbusters recently explained, millions of Americans who gather their daily news from the mainstream media were literally unaware of any negative Biden news and were keenly unaware of Trump’s accomplishments, which any reasonable person would agree could have a massive impact on the results of the 2020 election.
What we know for sure is that something needs to change in the industry. It feels like the 2020 election was a test to see just how much influence the mainstream media could have over the American population and, unfortunately for American democracy, they succeeded.
