The lead story today is that Jame's O'Keefe of Project Veritas fame came out with a new "hidden camera" video with a CNN director in which he admits (well, brags really) that CNN's open opposition to Trump may have been enough to tip the election against Trump. I don't believe that; I'm still convinced there was enough election chicanery in the "5 cities" to turn the election. Fox, CNN staffer admits network's focus was to 'get Trump out of office,' calls its coverage 'propaganda'
A staffer for CNN spoke candidly to an undercover journalist about the political motivations the network had during the 2020 presidential election, boasting the left-leaning outlet helped defeat former President Donald Trump and even calling his own employer "propaganda."
In the first installment of what's billed as a three-part #ExposeCNN campaign from the right-wing guerilla news outlet Project Veritas, network technical director Charles Chester shed light on how the network wanted to remove its nemesis from the White House and help now-President Biden.
"Look at what we did, we got Trump out," Chester said in a celebratory tone. "I am 100% going to say it. And I 100% believe it that if it wasn't for CNN, I don't know that Trump would have got voted out."

So the next time they tell you to give up burgers (while they eat Kobi beef) to save the planet, you know your being gas-lighted. Now, news sources being biased is nothing new in America; it's been true from before the Revolution. What's new is the claim of objectivity, which is the real "Big Lie."Dem pollsters: Our 2020 polling had 'major errors' (and we're still not sure why)
Reading between the lines, I think these Democratic pollsters are hoping that all of this error is tied to President Trump and therefore, if he doesn’t run again, the 2024 polling will suddenly be more accurate. But was it hidden Trump voters who re-elected Susan Collins as well? I guess I’d need to see some more data before going with that idea.
Plus: “When GW Bush won a disputed election in 2001, the media, led by the NYT and WaPost, immediately dispatched hoards of journalists to count every vote. I always assumed that they were looking to discredit the Bush election. Has anything like that happened after the 2020 election? I must have missed it. The fact that the media has turned a blind eye to what could be a huge story tells me all I need to know. And what did polling of Democrats look like in 2001? Most of the Democrats I know are still convinced that GW Bush stole that election.”
That’s different because shut up.
I have enough statistical training to be dangerous, and I wouldn't relish the job of being a pollster in today's world.

After repeated violations of YouTube's "presidential election integrity policy," the video platform terminated the channel for a radio show hosted by Sebastian Gorka, a onetime aide to former President Donald Trump.
Gorka's show, America First, was removed sometime over the past three days. The Washington Examiner can confirm it was live as recently as Thursday. The show features right-wing commentary on politics "to be the new front lines in the ongoing Culture War against the Left," according to a description on Apple Podcasts.
"In accordance with our long standing strikes system, we terminated the channel America First with Sebastian Gorka, for repeated violations of our presidential election integrity policy," Ivy Choi, a YouTube spokesperson, told the Washington Examiner on Sunday. "As we’ve publicly shared, our presidential election integrity policy prohibits content uploaded after last year’s safe harbor deadline that alleges widespread fraud or errors changed the outcome of the 2020 U.S. presidential election. Any channel that violates this policy will receive a strike and channels that receive three strikes in the same 90-day period are permanently removed from YouTube, as in the case of America First with Sebastian Gorka."
