The Amazing Dishonesty of Mainstream Media

A Short Timeline of
The Amazing Dishonesty of the Media:

4/16/2020
Trump unveils fairly boring guidelines to slowly reopen America and re-vitalize economy. Tells no one to stop current measures, specifically tells people to continue to social distance and wear masks (1)
4/17-20/2020
Media reports, mostly through Op-ed nonsense, how reckless Trump was to totally reopen America, despite him not doing that and instead being, boring ‘on-prompter’ Trump.
4/20/2020
Georgia Gov says screw it and reopens his state.(2)
4/22/2020
Trump, logically, criticizes that because it totally goes against his boring plan.
4/23/2020
The media today criticizes Trump for going back on the statements from him that THEY MADE UP.
“Trump Changes Course on Reopening the Economy After Georgia Governor Tries To Follow His Lead” – Reason (3)
“Trump reverses course, says it’s ‘too soon’ for Georgia Gov. Kemp to reopen state” – NBC News (4)
“Georgia feud spotlights Republican divide over reopening economy” – POLITICO (5)
and final example:
“Could you talk about your decision making process on the healthcare of Georgia, you yesterday said… to the Governor of Georgia that you were concerned and earlier this week you spoke and you did not convey this kind of message. Was there a change in your thinking?” (6)
– fake newswoman tried to ask a question based on this false premise and Trump shut her down, a little too politely, but thankfully he did shut her down. They’ll probably start lying about something else tomorrow but I wonder if anyone notices that, um… ALL OF THESE LIES ARE RECORDED AND PUBLISHED ONLINE! And this is why more and more people are turning away from Mainstream news.

Nigeria election results: US speaks ahead of announcement of winner in Buhari, Atiku contest

The United States has called for calm as the nation awaits the winner of Nigeria’s presidential election.
The main contenders are incumbent President Muhammadu Buhari of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Already, some states have released their official results. Figures show that it was keenly contested.

In a statement made available to DAILY POST by the US Embassy in Nigeria, Ambassador W. Stuart Symington, he congratulated the tens of millions of Nigerians who stood patiently in long lines to vote this week and the hundreds of thousands who worked together with INEC to conduct the elections.

He said: “As noted by many observer groups in their preliminary reports, this election was predominantly peaceful, and it was proof of the Nigerian people’s resolute commitment to choose their leaders.

“The peaceful achievement of millions was shadowed by the violence of a few. We extend our deepest sympathy to the families of those who lost their lives, and we urge all candidates to honor the Peace Accord they signed.

“All should convince those who support them to refrain from using force or violence to interfere with INEC. No one should break the law by announcing results before INEC does, or break the peace by claiming victory before the results are final.

“Everyone has a common interest in showing patience as INEC collates and announces the election results.”

Senegal President Sall Wins Re-Election In First Round

Senegal’s President Macky Sall won in the first round of the election Sunday, his prime minister said, although his two main challengers look set to contest the outcome.

“The results allow us to say that we should congratulate President Macky Sall on his re-election,” Prime Minister Mahammed Boun Abdallah Dionne said at midnight, predicting the incumbent would receive “at least 57 percent” of the vote.

His announcement hours after polls closed was greeted with cheers from supporters gathered at the headquarters of the presidential coalition in Dakar. Sall, who was seen there earlier in the evening, did not speak.

Official results from each region are not expected until Tuesday with a nationwide announcement by Friday midnight at the latest. If no one wins more than 50 percent a second-round runoff will be held on March 24.

Shortly before Dionne’s announcement, Sall’s two main challengers had warned against premature proclamations of victory.

“At this stage, a second round is announced and the results that are already compiled allow us to say so,” said former prime minister Idrissa Seck, who was making his third run for president.

“At the current state of the vote count, no candidate, I say no candidate, including myself, can claim to have won the presidential election,” taxman-turned MP Ousmane Sonko, who was also in the race, added at their joint press conference.

The other challengers, former foreign minister Madicke Niang and Issa Sall of the Unity and Assembly Party (PUR), were trailing far behind, according to the results.

Macky Sall had looked set to cruise to victory in the first round after his two key rivals, popular former Dakar mayor Khalifa Sall and Karim Wade, son of the previous president, were banned from running over graft convictions and he only faced four lesser-known candidates.

“At the end of this day, the Senegalese people alone will be the winner. And the president has chosen will equally have to be president of all Senegalese,” Sall said after voting Sunday.

A geologist by training, Sall took over as president in 2012 after beating his former mentor Abdoulaye Wade, and this time, he has campaigned for a second term championing his “Emerging Senegal” infrastructure project to boost economic growth.

“Victory in the first round is indisputable,” Sall told a recent Dakar campaign rally.

The EU observation mission said its overall assessment was “quite positive” among the polling stations it observed.

“There has been very little violence, very isolated incidents, which is very good news,” said Elena Valenciano, head of the mission.

Sall has made transport infrastructure a priority. But basic services, healthcare, and education often remain inadequate, sometimes triggering strikes and protests.

The other four candidates have campaigned hard against his plans for the second phase of his project, which critics see as a potential debt burden.

The five-horse race leaves voters with a limited choice compared to 2012 when 14 candidates vied for the top post.

A new system approved by parliament last year requires candidates demonstrate support from a minimum number of citizens and regions.

Once the regulations went into force, only seven candidates made the cut, but two of them — Khalifa Sall and Karim Wade — were then disqualified.

Both men were barred over their convictions for misuse of public funds, which they say were engineered to bar them from the race.

Senegal has a population of 16 million but only 6.7 million were registered to vote in the West African nation which gained independence from France in 1960.

Senegal has known two peaceful power transfers in 2000 and 2012 and has never experienced any coups. But election campaigns are often marred by charges of corruption, disinformation and sometimes violence.

For polling day, some 8,000 police were deployed throughout urban areas alongside an unspecified number of civilian security staff, officials said.

And around 5,000 observers — including some from the European Union — were monitoring proceedings, the interior ministry said.

Atiku Takes Early Lead In Rivers… See Details

Atiku Abubakar

The Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Atiku Abubakar, has taken an early lead in Saturday’s presidential poll results of eight out of nine Local Government Areas (LGA’s) of Rivers.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports on Monday in Port Harcourt that the results were announced by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) electoral officers with support of the collation officers from the LGA’s.

The results, which are still being collated across the state, showed the former Vice President leading in Oyigbo, Omuma, Ogba/Egbema/Ndoni, Obio/Akpor, Eleme, Andoni, Gokana and Etche LGAs.

The results also showed the candidate of the All Prorgressives Congress (APC) and incumbent President Muhammadu Buhari trailing behind with a lead in Asari-Toru Local Government Area of the state.

The results from 13 other LGAs including Port Harcourt, Ikwerre, Emohua, Degema, Tai and Opobo/Nkoro, are however, yet to be announced.

Others are Okirika, Ogu/Obolo, Khana, Abia/Odua, Ahoada East, Ahoada West, Akoku-Toru and Bonny LGAs

Atiku got a total of 222,045 in the nine LGAs, while Buhari got 71,734 votes.

The breakdown of the results showed that Atiku won in Oyigbo with 16,102 as against 3,520 votes of Buhari while in Omuma, he got 15,322 as against 2, 494 of the incumbent President.

The results further showed that Atiku won in Ogba/Egbeme/Ndoni with 28,536, Obio/Akpor with 69,981, Eleme with 8,464, Andoni with 72,330, Etche with 11,135 and Gokana with 10,276.

Buhari polled 18,180 votes to take lead in Asari-Toru while Atiku got 3,175.

Meanwhile the results of the National Assembly in the state are yet to be released.

NAN also reports that the PDP National Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus, delivered his Andoni LGA to Atiku with 72,330 votes.

The Collation Officer for Andoni, Prof Prince Oghenekaro, while announcing the results, said that Ward 6 of the LGA had no election as election materials were allegedly carted away by hoodlums.

Also, Dr Godwin Ihenacho, a Collation Officer for Etche LGA, said that there was no election in Ward 14 of the area due to hijack of election materials.

The Collation Officer for Obio/Akpor LGA, Prof. Arthur Nwafor, said the result so far was from 13 out of 17 wards.

He added that four wards, 1, 3, 15 and 16, which generated a total of 4,000 votes, were not collated due to security situation in the wards at the time of collation.

The state Returning Officer of INEC, Prof. Aniefiok Essien, however, said that the results from the remaining LGA’s would be announced as soon as they arrived.
