President Donald Trump said right up front in his message to the nation Wednesday, “This may be the most important speech I’ve ever made.” He detailed the kind of evidence revealed so far that should lead all Americans to demand open review of ballots and counting in at least the six swing states.
But, by far Trump’s most upsetting statement was, “The media knows this, but they don’t want to report it. In fact, they outright refuse to even cover it, because they know the result if they do.”
We would normally reject such talk as political hyperbole, but in this instance, our daily selection of incoming Associated Press stories allowed us to compare what Trump said with what AP wrote.
In a post-article email to the AP, we noted they had sent us editorial opinion, not a report on the contents of Trump’s speech that explained legitimate concerns about the November 3rd election.
• AP dissembles between constitutionality and fraud as if unconstitutional actions can’t facilitate fraud.
• AP saysmany of Trump claims have been debunked or dismissed but that doesn’t mean they all have.
• AP cites comments by an official charged with illegal external cyber intrusion erroneously suggests he was assigned to, or competent to judge entirely different issues that challenge internal system security and potentially allow vote fraud.
• AP did not address voter rolls intentionally left replete with dead, relocated, or ineligible voters.
• AP did not address spraying of unsolicited ballots across states.
• AP did not address adjusting down the standards for validating signatures on envelopes and the need to revalidate the signatures with those from previous elections particularly in Georgia.
• AP ignored affidavits that allege data dumps, and potential system access, and did not describe what kind of manipulations the machines are capable of.
• And yet AP included potential suits by New York’s Attorney General without noting her prejudgment of Trump’s “guilt” while they left out previous malicious prosecutions against Trump or his staff.
In short, information in the story seems included simply to obscure the absence of clear, informative, authoritative news. By writing decidedly against the President of the United States, AP demonstrably forfeits its credibility on political issues. Readers must be on guard.
To inform our readers, we fleshed out our version to include facts AP left out. There is much more in Trump’s presentation worth knowing. Listen to the speech on YouTube or read a transcript at https://www.rev.com/blog/transcripts/donald-trump-speech-on-election-fraud-claims-transcript-december-2.
