The biggest question I have, is why do we still have all this mail-in voting? We shouldn’t. The so-called “pandemic” is over. People should go back to voting in person, my God, most states give them a whole damn month to vote. I will tell you why, because this is just another way for Dems to harvest votes. Ballot harvesting is real, I don’t care what anybody says, and the Dems will use this to keep winning in these key states — they do it by harvesting and also drawing out the vote for days, even a week if that’s what they need, and I think you know what I mean.
So, of course, people don’t have faith in these clownish elections. They didn’t have faith in that mail-in sham in 2020, nor should they. It was a total joke.
But here we are again, and many people feel the same way, they did back in 2020, and Fox News host Martha McCallum now understands why. There’s no transparency. But she only gets it half right.
The media are also the problem, namely; Fox News.
Bizpacreview reported that The race to be first has dominated the 24 hour news cycle often resulting in questionable reporting like the frustrating call of Arizona made by Fox News in the 2020 presidential election. Anchor Martha MacCallum seemed to harken back to that travesty Tuesday night as she sought a scapegoat for the “distrust in the system.”
As midterm election results trickle in, widespread predictions of a big red wave that didn’t manifest are not going to help voter confidence still shaken from the last go ’round. Anyone who has watched live election coverage in recent years has witnessed the rollercoaster of lead changes as various precincts report in, sometimes suggesting a dominant lead by one candidate while the other is projected to win, and MacCallum briefly touched on that.
Seated between Fox News anchor Bret Baier and host Laura Ingraham as expectations were measured over races being watched, she began her comments.
“We’ve been going through all of these voting rules for all of these states. There’s so many states where they will not–where they don’t say, ‘We’re gonna count the mail-in first, then we’re gonna count the day of, then we’re gonna go to our provisional ballots. This is the order that we do it in,’” she said.
“So when you start getting this vote in,” MacCallum continued, as she noted the tides shifting as results manifested, “it just–that’s the kind of thing that people don’t–it fosters distrust in the system.”
The anchor’s sentiment failed to acknowledge that the manner in which corporate media chooses to cover the developing results and to project winners from that information is entirely up to them as they could just as easily wait until it is clear.
As it happened in 2020, Fox News had called the state of Arizona for then-candidate Joe Biden well before any other outlet where the race seemed far too close. As previously reported, a recent book by New York Times chief White House correspondent Peter Baker and CNN global affairs analyst Susan Glasser titled, “The Divider: Trump in the White House, 2017-2021,” alleged that Baier had pressured Fox to withdraw that call.
Baier reportedly wrote an email to Fox News president Jay Wallace that read, “This situation is getting uncomfortable. Really uncomfortable. I keep having to defend this on air,” and, “It’s hurting us. The sooner we pull it–even if it gives us major egg–and we put it back in his column the better we are in my opinion.”
Sounds like they should have listened to Bret.

Who can forget what they did with that AZ call, back in 2020? It was absurd.
But apparently, conservatives have forgiven Fox because they smashed records in viewership for these midterms.
