For a journalist to discourage an inquisitive stance, even distrust, toward government and the elections process is astounding. That’s CNN Journo Brian Stelter for you.
After a primary in which the delegate system, Republican and Democrat, was exposed for the truly iffy operation it is—the smarmy Mr. Stelter still inveighs against any skepticism at all about voting irregularities in America. To even suggest as much is “dangerous,” Stelter declared.
In his “Trump’s Biggest Lies” segment, Stelter offers non sequitur, assertion, as opposed to argument, and no facts for his position. This Stelter does not consider “a propaganda technique.”
One particular Stelter howler:
Journos “are not anti-Trump, they’re pro-democracy.”
In his assertion of no voter fraud, Stelter, a man bereft of an inquiring mind, fails to consider the redefining of what includes voter fraud. Indirect voter fraud. For example, the “Feds wrongly granting citizenship to hundreds facing deportation.” These, and many other recipients of “mistaken” grants of government privilege, might vote. Voting by illegals turned legal will result in a form of voter fraud, caused by government. This indirect voter fraud is not covered by law or considered by those researching voter fraud.
