[Ed. – Hinderaker makes a strong case. That said, it’s an interesting question how permanent the effect will be. Ten years ago there was widespread acceptance of the global-warming religion. Today that acceptance is much attenuated. Too much reality and counter-evidence have intervened — and an enduring core of skeptics made sure the evidence was at least available and not forgotten.]
I’m talking about the fake news that was paid for by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee; fabricated by Democratic Party-allied consultants; propagated by the FBI and the CIA; promoted by the broadcast networks, CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times, the Washington Post, and the Associated Press; trumpeted by pretty much every senior elected Democrat; and kept alive by the appalling Robert Mueller. The claim that the Trump campaign colluded with the Russians to “steal” the 2016 presidential election is the great fake news of our time.
How successful have the Democrats been in propagating that myth? This survey by The Economist and YouGov suggests that they have been successful beyond their wildest dreams.
