President Trump’s new Commission on Election Integrity, led by Vice President Mike Pence and Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, held its first public meeting Wednesday, but many of the mainstream media failed to give the event any public coverage.
ABC News was there and posted a video on YouTube of the complete event, but it and NBC reportedly failed to make any mention of the meeting in their evening news broadcasts.
It is noted that CBS did mention the meeting, but the coverage they gave was misleading and left-leaning.
“While Congress and the Special Counsel are investigating Russian election hacking, President Trump has set up a panel to investigate election fraud with little evidence there is any,” Anthony Mason declared during the “CBS Evening News” broadcast.
Likewise, reporter Chip Reid ridiculed the meeting, announcing, “Trump kicked off the first meeting of his election integrity commission today, but its origin goes back to November when he won the Electoral College while losing the popular vote to Hillary Clinton by almost three million votes. Mr. Trump has refused to believe it, insisting that millions of people illegally voted for Clinton, but he has cited no evidence. Critics say the president created this commission in a desperate effort to prove that he did win the popular vote. Today, Vice President Mike Pence, who is heading the commission, tried to quash that idea.”
On Tuesday, a federal district court judge denied the request of a civil rights group seeking to block the commission from holding their first public meeting.
Before the meeting began, President Trump spoke briefly, stating, “Any form of illegal or fraudulent voting, whether by non-citizens or the deceased, and any form of voter suppression or intimidation must be stopped.”
Fox News did cover the meeting in their evening broadcasts:
