Part of the Art of Poker is skillful deception. When you have a good hand you want your opponent to think you have a bad one, and when you have a bad hand you want him to think you’re holding four aces. Since everybody tries to maintain a “poker face” to conceal their thoughts, good players look for little things you might do to give you away. Those are called “tells” because they “tell” what you are thinking.
In November 2016 Donald Trump shocked the pants off of the news media, and they have been running around showing hir collective ass ever since. For over two straight years they searched high and low for a smoking gun, a holy grail, a stained blue dress, and/or ANYTHING that they could use to prove that Trump colluded with Russia to steal the election.
To this day many of them believe that Trump is guilty, they just couldn’t find the evidence because Trump obstructed justice. Now let’s compare Russiagate to The Big Steal.
No honest and objective examination of the events leading up to, during, and after the election on November 3, 2020, can claim that there was nothing unusual or suspicious that took place. Lots of irregularities have been found and many questions have been raised. Now it is possible that there is an innocent explanation for each and every irregularity and a reasonable answer for every question. But the media hasn’t shown any interest in looking into any of it.
The most effort the media has put forth has been when they ask Democrat officials (who would be involved in any cheating) a softball question they can hit out of the park.
So-Called Journalist: “Trump says you cheated. Any response?”
Democrat official: “Trump is just a crybaby loser.”
So-Called Journalist: “Okay then. Case closed. Back to you in the studio, Brian.”
The crazy thing is the news media isn’t just ignoring the story, they are actively suppressing it by attacking anyone who tries to talk about it. If the news media really believes that Joe Biden* won the election fair and square and that Trump is lying about electoral fraud, why aren’t they trying to prove that Trump is lying? That’s the tell.
How do they know that Trump’s claims are baseless if they don’t investigate them?
