MSM's Responsibility in January 6th
I’ve talked about blame-shiting and responsibility-shifting in this substack a lot. That’s something people in the drama triangle do a lot. I wrote this for Twitter this morning and thought it would fit here too.
Since January 6th supposed “insurrection” is trending again. Even IF everything happened the way Democrats say it did, they blame Trump as a scapegoat. The actual blame should go to the mainstream media who refused to look seriously at the evidence of election fraud & simply said NONE existed.
Ok, technically the blame should be on the people who personally decided to riot, but you know, I started this out with the supposition the Democrats were right, so let’s go with this.
The mainstream media gaslit the nation because everyone knows that some (even if it's not enough to turn an election) election fraud exists every single time there is an election. To make such a broad statement, a bold-faced lie, that none existed was beyond the pale & showed they feared the fact that there could be election fraud that would overturn the results that they wanted. If you had no fear of what the results of an investigation would show then you wouldn't lie like that.

It's simple enough for everyone to understand intuitively that lying about whether or not any election fraud existed means you are up to something. It wasn't so long ago before 2020 that the media admitted there was election fraud happening in all elections. It wasn't difficult to see.
So, when the media lied saying there was no evidence of election fraud, and people saw the evidence with their own eyes and ears and knew there was always some fraud (no matter how little), they wondered why the media was lying to them. The mainstream media’s lies were the reason for distrust.
If the media hadn't been scared of the result of the election being overturned because of fraud, they would have allowed discussion of fraud and would have welcomed the juicy news and viewers they would gain over it.
And if the mainstream media had allowed discussion of the possibility of election fraud in 2020 then the people (who believed the media at the time) would have accepted the results even if they came to show Biden won regardless of the fraud that existed.
It is solely because the media lied to them and wouldn't allow discussion of the possibility that caused them to lose trust in the media (rightfully so), which caused them to lose trust in the election (whether accurate or not) which caused them to be so riled up January 6th.
Trump said to “peacefully” make their voices heard. If it wasn’t for the motivated reasoning of Democrats, it would be impossible to claim someone asking for peace was asking for an “insurrection.”
You can’t blame people for not trusting the media when it was easy to see the media was lying to them. What do you do when you detect someone lying to you? You get mad. It’s as simple as that.
