How what was after Trump winning the election in 2016 so “obvious”, “100% sure” and “for sure happened in 2016 and will happen again in 2020 election” a common statement from for ALL Officials, security experts, intelligence agencies and CNN, suddenly became a “baseless conspiracy” and illegitimate even to question, in the 2020 election?
Does the reporting about the integrity -or fraudulent- of an election system should really depends on the wishful outcome or on the real facts and nonpartisan standpoint?
I do not claim that Trump win. I do not claim that if the election system was worth trusty Biden wouldn’t win anyway. I do not know. All I know is that not only I do not know, but as long as we delegitimize questions, transparency and open investigations, no one will never really know, and the 2024 will be even worse.
So forget the Trump-Biden issue. I am not into political standpoint at all.
I am about Democracy and journalism integrity. And what we see here, is neither.
You know what is even worse? That it’s even not about USA democracy. If this is the election “integrity” in USA, what’s is elections and democracy worldwide anyway?
In my opinion, we better follow the current outcome for the sake of stability and wish Biden administration great success, but we should not be fooled again in the next elections, not in USA and not elsewhere. “Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me”
