Whitewashing Wisconsin Elections

It's not what "the nooz" DOES report.  It's what "the nooz" does NOT report.

So when Fox6 interviewed Reid Magney--a highly partisan bureaucrat--they got the answers to some, but not all, of the questions.

The objective here was to whitewash the Wisconsin vote and Dominion voting machines.

President Donald Trump has blasted a particular voting machine company, Dominion Voting Systems, used in some Wisconsin municipalities like Racine, Oshkosh, Fond du Lac and West Bend, but regular audits check that the paper ballots match what the machines recorded....

Let's grant that all of that is true.  So what?

This year's Wisconsin vote fraud was not found in voting machines (at least, not yet).  It was found in highly questionable absentee ballotsCounting fraudulent ballots, re-counting fraudulent ballots, and then auditing a count and recount of fraudulent ballots is useless.  Doh.

As to Dominion machine flaws....

..."The software itself was created with so many variables and so many backdoors or thumb drives or whatever, but one of its characteristic features is its ability to flip votes," said Sidney Powell.

The Trump campaign distanced itself from Powell after a press conference last week writing, "She is not a member of the Trump legal team.”...

The phrase 'distanced itself', as commonly used, implies a negative relationship.  Another example of that would be "Fox6 distanced itself from Ted Perry after a tasteless Facebook post, keeping him off the air for a week."

A different way to phrase it?  "Trump campaign lawyers are pursuing ballot fraud whereas Powell is separately taking up challenges to Dominion systems' integrity."  See the difference?

And then there's the tried-and-true method of "non-reporting":  report it at the bottom of the story.  So the penultimate graf tells us that yes, yes indeed, there IS controversy over Dominion:

...Still, Princeton University Professor Andrew Appel wrote of a “design flaw in Dominion ImageCast Evolution Voting Machine.”...

We could cut Fox6 some slack here.  The story was not about Dominion systems' flaws, so Fox6 really didn't want to open that can of worms in this context.  I'll highlight a little bit of Appel's essay in my next post.

The story, instead, was all about auditing a recount of a recount--exactly what Reid Magney wanted you to hear. 

It certainly was NOT about 200,000+++ highly-questionable absentee ballots.
