For those of you wondering why the Hunter Biden story has still not broken through to the MSM even at this point or why the networks still haven’t pivoted to reflect the actual election reality the explanation is a one word answer:
I wrote a bit ago that the Democrat Media Academia (and I should add Big Tech) left’s basic plan in Election 2020 was Albert Sydney Johnston’s 1861 strategy in the west to hold back the overwhelmingly powerful Union forces that could strike along a line he couldn’t defend, basically a giant bluff with the newspapers on board predicting his advance with huge numbers into enemy territory at any moment.
Modern Democrats have played the same card (see the MSM on Texas and Georgia) to some effect among their shrinking delusional bubbled and increasingly violent base however….
Unfortunately for the media they have one disadvantage that General Johnston did not. There is an actual drop dead date for this tactic, namely election day, although in fairness the attempt to push the idea that mail in ballots will be enough to change a Trump election night victory to a defeat will likely continue until it’s clear that there simply aren’t enough votes to steal in enough states to reverse the result.
Now that drop dead date is less than 5 days away and despite the best efforts of an army of Raquel Rodriguezes as documented by James O’Keefe at Project veritas, literally millions of people who live in said bubble are about to find out just how weak the Democrats in General and Joe Biden in particular actually are.
And when this happens while we will have a lot of fun mocking the Youtube screamers the violent and unhinged leftists and some of their big money people who have let themselves be deceived rather than facing reality will be looking for scapegoats and that’s the bottom line here each reporter and news agency is asking.
Do you really want to be the reporter or the network these ignorant and/or violent fools blame for the re-election of Donald Trump?
The least bit of action that allows reality to penetrate the bubble will allow said bubble people to point at them to be the cause of the overwhelming victor that these idiots are still predicting from happening.
If they are very lucky the end result of such an action will be a huge financial and status hit, being blacklisted by Hollywood and rich leftists, denied speaking gigs or the ability to profit on the speaking circuit (once it reopens) and it goes without saying that they won’t be able to sell any book to a publisher.
If they are not it means becoming the target of a bunch of violent thugs who have already demonstrated a willingness to use violence against their own allies if they are displeased in the slightest even at their own homes.
There is not one network or paper in general or reporter in particular willing to face the wrath of this beast that they created.
So they will play the game right till election day and profess to the bubble people how shocked SHOCKED they are that somehow Donald Trump has won. They’ll blame fraud, they’ll blame SCOTUS they’ll point the blame wherever they can without worry about the consequences for the nation secure in the knowledge that they will still gain admission to the right parties, be welcome among the Hollywood crowd and still be able to pitch books to the faithful about how they fought the good fight against the evil Trump Empire.
