Tucker began his program last night detailing the media cover-up of the damning New York Post story on Biden & Company just eleven days before the presidential election. Many who voted for Joe Biden now say they would have voted differently had they known the facts before November third.
Good evening and welcome to Tucker Carlson Tonight. October Surprise, you’ve heard that term. It’s political slang for a damaging news story that appears in the final days of a campaign. This year we had one, one of the biggest October Surprises ever. The New York Post, that’s the oldest daily newspaper in this country, published a trove of documents showing that members of Joe Biden’s family have been selling access to the former vice president to a number of foreign governments including the communist government of China.
Now that’s a blockbuster, but the rest of the media decided to kill it before you could read it. Social media companies banned their users from sharing the New York Post’s reporting. Other news organizations simply ignored it. On October 22nd that was 11 days before the presidential election, National Public Radio, or an organization that is literally state media, funded against your will by your tax dollars, issued the following statement through its public editor. NPR explained that they would not say anything negative about the Bidens and here’s why: “We don’t want to waste our time on stories that are not really stories and we don’t want to waste the listeners’ and readers’ time on stories that are just pure distractions”
My take: Ban early voting, mail-In voting and absentee ballot voting in all but extenuating circumstances.
