In her book, “Rigged: How the Media, Big Tech, and the Democrats Seized Our Elections,” Mollie Hemingway gives a detailed account of how the media and big tech influenced the 2020 election to ensure the election of Joe Biden.
Hemingway’s book, released in October, offers an incredible amount of detail concerning the presidential election of 2020. Giving insight into her book, Hemingway stated, “President Trump gave me a ton of explosive details for my new book.”
Her book gives an account of how the media and big tech deliberately influenced the 2020 election by aiding Democrats, shielding damaging news stories about Joe Biden, and censoring the 45th President of the United States.
“Donald Trump’s 2016 victory was a shock to much of the country, but Silicon Valley took it especially hard,” Hemingway writes, according to an excerpt released by New York Post.
According to Hemingway, in the aftermath of the election, the stunned media and big tech companies began to examine ways they could undermine Trump’s Presidency and make sure he would not be reelected in 2020. She claims, “From the beginning, the tech overlords were plotting how to strike back.”
The book also provides numerous examples of how Facebook, Google, YouTube, Twitter, and other tech and media companies used their resources to undermine the President of the United States and influence voters as the 2020 election approached.
For example, in December of 2016, Facebook began employing individuals to “fact check” information. Around the same time, Google began to increase their blacklisting and whitelisting conservative websites and news stories that did not fit with their narrative. Multiple leaks, whistleblowers, and testimonies show how these tech companies intentionally attempted to sway voters for Joe Biden and prevent Donald Trump from reaching voters through social media.
Trump claimed that not only was the 2020 election “rigged,” but also, “the only thing more RIGGED than the 2020 Presidential Election is the FAKE NEWS SUPPRESSED MEDIA.”
As Hemingway’s book clearly shows, the election was heavily influenced by the intentional acts of the liberal media and big tech companies. Big tech has increasingly limited the reach of conservative messages, covered up damaging stories concerning Democrats, and censored anything they disagree with.
Hemingway is not the first to point out the liberal bias in the media and how it played a major role in the 2020 election. In an opinion piece, Fox News’ Tucker Carlson stated, “The media openly colluded with the Democratic nominees.”
This was clearly seen in the “Russian collusion hoax” that the media and big tech allowed to gain traction, while the media intentionally silenced stories about Joe Biden and Hunter Biden’s business affairs until after the 2020 election.
“Rigged: How the Media, Big Tech, and the Democrats Seized Our Elections” is a blistering attack against the media’s claim that the 2020 elections were “fair” and “secure.” Since the election, countless Americans have lost faith in the voting system and have called for election audits to examine what happened in 2020 to prevent it from being repeated in 2024.
In recent months, Big Media and Big Tech have continued to censor Republicans and shield Democrats from damaging news stories. This leaves many Americans wondering whether free speech is disappearing in the United States.
