1. Trevor Noah Demonstrates How The Media's Fake Scandals Makes The Candidates THEMSELVES Make Mistakes
2. The Media's "October Surprise" Is Just Another Big Fake Scandal! (With Stephen Colbert & Seth Meyers)
First off, I understand that this is a controversial position to have. The main media narrative is that Trump won the election because of his tactics and/or white voter angst that exists in a bubble, separate from the media. (i.e. they claim not to have influence on public opinion... something they normally claim to have power over). Basically I will show the FBI (Comey was/is a Trump supporter) and media won Trump the election through fear-mongering/fake-scandals and sensationalism.
The best guy in the statistics business had a Trump win at 30% but the media had it down to 2% in thier sensationalist narrative to get viewers to respond to them from thier bubbles (explained in background links above). Thus increasing fear in the "conservative" areas (better labeled as Fox News & GOP Echo Chamber Areas that they control to keep their seats/power like a Dictatorship, but worse... they can say it out in the open and face no consequences). Higher fear means higher turnout. FBI closing an investigation a day of two before elections is suspicious anyways ("Obama did it!").
First the video;
NATE SILVER - WHAT FIVETHIRTYEIGHT COULDN'T ACCOUNT FOR IN THE 2016 ELECTION NOVEMBER 14, 2016 - FiveThirtyEight editor Nate Silver clarifies what his 2016 election forecast actually said about Donald Trump's chances of winning the presidency against Hillary Clinton. (5:13)
Now a collection of articles with the basic information that needs to be put in context of what we know about the media from the background links above;
Here is an article from Politico NOTING that previous email investigation HAD reduced Hillary's polls numbers (i.e. we had historical precedent AND the fact of needing several days for the polls to reflect the FBI's interference in the election).
If you take into account newspapers NOT in the American media fold of misinformation for profit (synergy) then we get the idea that there was an idea floating around that media stories and stories created by the FBI IN the media could have an effect on public opinion as well (such as boost voter turnout in high-fear areas, which is what appears to have happened, i.e. the scare tactic through a fake scandal worked!)
Here we see Hillary's poll number go down yet everyone seems to believe the FBI investigation has nothing to do with it! How did they figure that out? Ask a bunch of scared voters?
That's how the FBI and the media stole the election! Fearmongering! (or you can assume the FBI knows nothing about media or politifact or the media's tendency to prefer sensationalism over journalism).
Hillary, by the way, was right. The FBI won the election for Trump...
Hillary Clinton has blamed her defeat in the US presidential election on interventions by the FBI director.
