In October 2021, Cleta sat down with Mollie Hemingway of The Federalist and discussed her amazing book released in May 2021 about the 2020 election, Rigged: How the Media, Big Tech, and the Democrats Seized Our Elections.
It is worth watching and listening again to Mollie, to realize how completely accurate she was in describing how America’s powerful elites destabilized and compromised both the 2020 election process and its results. And now we know that it wasn’t just Big Tech and Big Media – it turns out that the federal government itself was engaged in the suppression of information vital to guaranteeing an informed electorate, as Twitter, Facebook, and Google suppressed (at government requests) important news and facts about everything from the pandemic to the Biden family’s international business dealings.
How has the media’s move from bias to outright propaganda allowed the left to ignore or manipulate election laws with impunity, to the point where the majority of voters have little or no confidence in election outcomes? Where is the intersection between leftwing media companies and skewed election results? How do we stop private entities from interfering in election offices to achieve partisan results? How widespread is the left’s reach into compromising elections? We revisit 2020 with Mollie in light of the facts we now know as 2022 comes to an end. And we are reminded by this episode of the Who’s Counting? podcast that Mollie Hemingway is perhaps the most insightful, thoughtful, and prescient public intellectual of our time.
