Skip to comments.The Associated Press Stylebook has proclaimed there was no election fraud in 2020

I just noted this update to the AP Style Manual — "2021 Impeachment Topical Guide."
[T]here was no widespread fraud in the election, as has been confirmed by a range of election officials across the country and by former Attorney General William Barr. Nearly all the legal challenges to the election put forth by Trump and his allies were dismissed — a fact Democrats mention in their brief for the trial.
In terms of fact-checkers, this lacks context. Yes, many courts dismissed the many motions of the Trump legal team filed. But what the AP fails to disclose is that these dismissals were on jurisdiction and timing issues. There was never a full hearing on the evidence by the courts and subject to cross-examination. There wasn't a real investigation by the FBI for A.G. Barr to review before giving his opinion. Even the Supreme Court ducked the case from Texas, requesting it hear its case on original jurisdiction that other states' actions disenfranchised the voters of the State of Texas.
I would argue that these other states' responses that the Court gave deference to were written by those likely complicit in the fraud. These states violated the U.S. Constitution by certifying their electors not by the state legislatures as mandated, but by governors and secretaries of state who may likely be culpable in this fraud.
The AP Style Manual is the Gospel of journalists. I'll let you decide how factual this narrative is. As a longtime criminal investigator, I have my own professional opinion: follow the money, honey, and the truth will come out. My intense exasperation lies with the DOJ and especially the FBI, which not only was late out of the gate on 9/11, but never left it in this fraud of the century. Why?

Once upon a time, journalism was (at least in theory) all about “Here’s what happened yesterday”.
But now there is no pretending — Journalism is: “Here’s how we want you to think about stuff.”
The Ministry of Propaganda is having a hard time convincing people of their lies.
Anything that says that you just capitalize black and lowercase White is worthless as a guide for the language, and for thinking.
Somewhere in the lower parts of Hell, Goebbels is laughing his ass off...........

Trump had to deal with crooks around tge country, bad lawyers, & wacky people like Lin Wood & Sydney Powell, who both promised & never delivered.
Well who the f***’cares what AP says. Does any really have to say fake news anymore?
AP = Asinine Propaganda.
Sustain the Steal?
When did the “Style Book” move to presentation style to what is presented.
Tomorrow the Style Book will proclaim Black is White. No wait they hate White; it will have to be Day is Night. They like the dark.
Here’s an update on progress of 80+ election fraud cases
Many have been withdrawn, or rejected by courts due to unrelated issues like “standing.” Most are still working their way through courts
Of those where evidence was actually presented, Trump/Republicans won
The perpetrators admitted it in TIME. AP has established standard and practice to commit premeditated fraud.
ALL AP articles should be dismissed.
They don’t pass the basic fact check.
>> They like the dark.
Democracy died in darkness.
Within months, for example, the Nazi regime destroyed Germany’s previously vigorous free press. By 1941, the Nazi Party’s Eher publishing house had become the largest ever in German history, and its main daily newspaper, the Völkischer Beobachter (The National Observer) had reached a circulation of over 1,000,000.
No Democrat has ever committed a crime
No Democrat has ever lied
No Democrat has ever...
...fill in the blank.
One more example that the news media is nothing more then the propaganda arm of the Democrat Party
We tell you what is true and you had better believe it, or else.
“WAR IS PEACE,”
“FREEDOM IS SLAVERY,”
“IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH.”
“ELECTION RIGGING IS FORTIFYING DEMOCRACY”
