The Media Research Center conducted a massive post-election poll in conjunction with McLaughlin & Associates, proving through the study that the mainstream media, in conjunction with Twitter and Facebook, undoubtedly proved to be the single greatest factor in putting Joe Biden over the top in the 2020 race. According to the poll, 35% of Biden’s voters had no knowledge of the Democrat’s link to corrupt Chinese dealings via his son, Hunter. 13% of those respondents said they would have changed their vote had they seen the evidence – evidence that the media went out of its way to shield from the public.
That shift would have put 4.6% of Biden’s total vote into the hands of Trump, and it would have been decisive in handing 289 electoral college votes (and a second term) to the president.
“It is an indisputable fact that the media stole the election,” said MRC President Brent Bozell. “The American electorate was intentionally kept in the dark. During the height of the scandal surrounding Hunter Biden’s foreign dealings, the media and the big tech companies did everything in their power to cover it up. Twitter and Facebook limited sharing of the New York Post’s reports, and the liberal media omitted it from their coverage or dismissed it as Russian disinformation.
“Now we know the impact of that cover-up,” Bozell continued. “4.6% of Biden voters say they would not have voted for him had they been aware of evidence of this scandal. This story would have potentially changed the outcome of this election. The media and Silicon Valley were fully aware of this, so they actively tried to prevent it from reaching the American public. The American people deserved to know the truth; now it’s too late.”
In the poll, respondents were asked specifically about the New York Post reporting that was ignored by the liberal media and outright banned by Twitter.
“At the time you cast your vote for President, were you aware that evidence exists in emails, texts, eyewitness testimony and banking transactions that the FBI has been investigating since last year directly linking Joe Biden to a corrupt financial arrangement between a Chinese company with connections to the Chinese communist party and Hunter Biden’s business, which may have personally benefited Joe Biden financially?” the poll asked.
For all the left’s big talk about the importance of the media and an informed democracy, they are much more interested in censorship and silence when it comes to news that would damage their efforts to gain power. And, to little surprise, it worked just the way they wanted it to. If you need a lesson in why a free and unbiased press is essential, this is it.
