Two thumbs up Bernie! Spot on. I find myself in a great place since I turned off all cable and network evening news. Reading news across a few different periodicals each morning is much more relaxing and informative. Goes good with my morning coffee.

The machines don’t bother me - it’s the drop boxes created without state legislation and the ensuing midnight drops by way of harvested votes that do. As for fox, they are one of many I review. They are all bad for one reason or another. Singling out the mouthpieces at fox is countered by those in alphabet news. Also, the problem with this “automation” and “ease” are that no third parties are allowed to evaluate the vulnerabilities. All efforts are thwarted. The machines are nothing compared to the other issues, here. Yes, Bernie, 81 million people actually voted for Biden..

I am a teacher. I am known among my colleagues as the " anti-conspiracy". As have warned my students for many years, once they believe a lie, everything built in top of that is a lie ( see below). The problem is that a system designed for dependence on a free press to provide verifiable information blows up in that nation's face as the citizenry fights over its preferred lies. It's one thing for a political opinion to flavor reporting of events. It is completely another to traffic outright falsehood intentionally for fun and profit. How do you see this case coming out Sir Bernie? Could it be a course correction to national media or will everyone continue to double down on the Barbra Streisand?

Fox did report election fraud, but what will happen to the corporate media that ran with Russian collusion for 4 years?

Every election has some amount of fraud, unfortunately, and the relatively minuscule amount of it that was discovered in the 2020 election has been reported by lots of media outlets (with most of it ironically being committed by Trump supporters). As for Russian collusion, I think any news-media figure that presented collusion as a fact, rather than as speculative (or as being part of an investigation) should have faced consequences, even just from their employers. One notable difference with Fox is that there is irrefutable proof that these folks never believed the "stolen election" stuff with Dominion, but promoted it on the air anyway, out of fear of losing viewers and revenue. I wasn't at all surprised by this, but reading it in their own words is pretty astonishing.
