“There was widespread fraud. The election was stolen. We must stop the steal. ” That’s been the message places like Fox News, OAN, Newsmax and others on the far right have peddled since Democrat Joe Biden was declared the winner of the presidential election.
It’s nothing more than a conspiracy theory and a flat out lie but that hasn’t stopped those outlets from trying to profit off it as attempt to increase viewership.
But now it appears that they are beginning to change their tune on the whole “election fraud” theory. That’s because two of the voting machine companies those networks have accused of flipping Trump votes to Biden votes are threatening them with a lawsuit.
Following this move, Newsmax released a statement trying to wash their hands of their erroneous and false reporting.
