People are starting to realize that media and Big Tech are keeping them in the dark about important news, Lara Trump told Fox & Friends First on Friday, noting that the 2020 presidential election might have turned out differently if voters had known about Hunter Biden’s laptop scandal.
Asked to react to “Newly-surfaced Hunter Biden emails [that] show his business contacts bragging about Hunter’s access to his father, as well as to China,” former President Donald Trump’s daughter-in-law called the way media and Big Tech are covering up Hunter Biden’s scandals “really scary stuff”:
“Well, we knew this was happening, right? We knew this was happening last year when the Hunter Biden laptop story surfaced. Unfortunately, there were countless Americans who never really heard about it because these stories were all suppressed. They were censored by Big Tech, almost every media outlet in the mainstream media did not report on this, oh, until well after the election. This is really, really scary stuff.”
If her husband, Eric Trump, had sent similar emails when his father was in office, the media coverage would’ve been “through the roof,” Lara Trump said. “They would have called for yet another impeachment of my father-in-law, of course, if something like that had happened.”
Americans are starting to catch on to how their decisions at the voting booth are being influenced by media and Big Tech bias and censorship, Trump said:
“There is such a double-standard and I think people are starting to catch on to it now in America. It is a shame that we have sunk to this low of a level that you have to find out a year later that stories are actually true.
“I guarantee you, when we saw the polls after the election in 2020, that so many people said, ‘You know, if I knew about this story with Hunter Biden's laptop, I wouldn't have voted for Joe Biden,’ and with good reason.”
Indeed, a survey conducted by The Polling Company for the Media Research Center (MRC) found that major media censorship of certain vital stories left voters in the dark, particularly Biden voters, and prevented President Donald Trump from winning a second term.
“This lack of information proved crucial,” said the MRC in a report on the poll. “One of every six Biden voters we surveyed (17%) said they would have abandoned the Democratic candidate had they known the facts about one or more of these news stories.”
“A shift of this magnitude would have changed the outcome in all six of the swing states won by Joe Biden, and Donald Trump would have comfortably won a second term as president,” MRC analysis concluded.
