For any appeals for treatment or reflection, formerly right-wing media organizations President Donald J. Trump’s Distortions about the 2020 election continued Wednesday to advance conspiracy theories about large-scale fraud, with some predicting more political clashes in the months ahead.
In a controversial tone with Trump media and President Biden, in a controversial tone, the coverage gave an opening speech of unity and hope to the new president, while his political opponents called for resistance against him. The use of powerful media platforms is based on lies and fabric.
For some outlets such as One America News, it was as if Mr. Biden was not president. The network, due to its Trump coverage of Mr. Trump, did not show its audience to Mr. Biden’s swearing-in or his inauguration speech.
Rush Limbaugh, broadcasting his week-long radio show just a few miles from the Palm Beach Retreat where Mr. Trump is spending the first day of his position, told his millions of listeners Wednesday that Mr. Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris The inauguration did not make him the true winner of the election.
“They have not yet won legitimately,” Mr Limbaugh said, noting that he would be on “thin ice” to make such a claim. He then gave his audience a false and inflated vote for Mr. Trump and predicted that the Democratic victory would be an “escape.”
“I think they know, with 74 million, maybe 80 million people who don’t vote for Joe Biden, there’s no way they can honestly say to themselves that they represent the power base in the country , “Mr. Limbo said.
On One America News, viewers watched a lengthy documentary-style segment called “Trump: Legacy of a Patriot” instead of the opening. One of the network’s commentators, Pearson Sharp, provided a voice-over and offered only flattering words about the former president, while presenting false claims about voter fraud.
Mr. Sharp reiterated many of the infamous excuses that alternate versions of events Mr. Trump and his followers are using to explain their losses. For example, the host claimed that Mr. Trump could not lose because he had conquered the state of Belvester, Ohio, and executed many more counties than Mr. Biden. “And yet somehow we’re still hoping to believe that Joe Biden got more votes than any president in history,” Mr. Sharp said.
She then issued a rally cry for Trump supporters. “Now it is up to the American people to continue with President Trump’s fight, or any progress we have made as a nation will quickly unravel,” Mr. Sharp said.
OAN’s personality was also giving viewers an optimistic vision of the Republican Party that would be based on Mr. Trump’s image. The network’s White House correspondent, Channel Rion, called Mr. Trump’s farewell comments from Joint Base Andrews on Wednesday morning “a temporary goodbye.”
“The fight has just begun,” he said.
An OAN anchor discussed the possibility that Mr. Trump could form his own political party and call it the Patriot Party, an idea that other Trump allies are floating. And the former president’s daughter, Ivanka Trump, was talked about on the network, challenging Senator Marco Rubio, a Florida Republican, when she is up for re-election in 2022.
On Newsmax TV, another pro-Trump channel, commentators and guests appeared to deny OAN less than their rivals. But he was no less dismissive of the new president. One asked Mr. Biden Appointment of a transgender woman Calling the heavy presence of troops in Washington “an effort to suppress the voice of the American people” to prevent another rebellion from his cabinet and Trump supporters.
An anchor at Newsmax mocked the presence of Mr. Biden’s son Hunter, whose personal distress and business interests became a distraction for his father’s campaign when conservative media outlets published unverified stories about his work in China. “That doesn’t go away,” the anchor said.
