The Media Research Center compiled the facts in this post-election week and noticed that Big Tech and the left-wing media had an outsized influence on the election.
One problem that MRC found was that fully 36 percent of voters had never even heard of the criminal activities of Joe Biden and his son Hunter in their graft and influence peddling scandal in Ukraine. That, of course, i because the media refused to cover the news.
MRC also found that at least 13 percent of those voters said after Election Day that if they had known about the Biden’s criminal activity they probably would not have voted for Joe. And MRC noted that this tiny slice threw the election to Biden.
The study found that 73% of respondents said they had heard about these allegations, but 27% had not — including 36% of Biden voters.
Those voters were asked: “If you had been aware of this actual evidence in emails, texts, testimony and banking transactions being investigated by the FBI, would you have…” The voters were then given several options: still voted for Joe Biden (86.9%), voted for a third party candidate (5.6%), not voted for any presidential candidate (4.7%), not voted at all (1.7%) or switched their vote to Donald Trump (1.1%).
The likely change in Democrat votes could easily have thrown the election to Trump in many closely contested areas.
In a statement, Brent Bozell, president of the MRC, said:
“It is an indisputable fact that the media stole the election. 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. 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.”
