The common drumbeat of the mainstream media during this election cycle is best summed up in the headline at Poynter: Trump baselessly claims election ‘fraud’ as votes continue to be counted.
This came after President Trump tweeted at 2:30 AM on election night that the election was “a fraud on the American public” and promised, “We’ll be going to the U.S. Supreme Court. We want all voting to stop.”
In an opinion piece for The Philadelphia Inquirer, Joshua A. Douglas claimed the news media was “amplifying President Donald Trump’s numerous post-election lawsuits” by even reporting on them. According to Douglas, this gave the Trump team an opportunity to air a dangerous narrative.”
So the mainstream media’s contention is that it has taken the high road by not giving air time to unvetted and inaccurate information about a presidential election.
Compare this to CNN’s positive coverage of a dead-on-arrival challenge of some Democrats to the Ohio electoral votes that delayed certification on incumbent President George W. Bush.
Ohio Rep. Stephanie Tubbs Jones said at that time, “How can we possibly tell millions of Americans … to simply get over it and move on?”
Now that same media wants 70 million Americans who voted for Donald Trump to just get over it and let Biden be installed.
