Which is odd because 'conspiracy to rig the results of an American election' feels like it would be right in their wheelhouse.
As revelations of an orchestrated campaign of election fraud roil the 9th congressional district of North Carolina, a scheme that allegedly included absentee ballot destruction and Republican operatives altering other ballots to give Republican congressional candidate Mark Harris a boost, Fox News is uncharacteristically reluctant to inform their viewers of what could be the most substantial incident of election fraud in recent history.
Fox & Friends First reported on the story for less than 30 seconds, claiming that “ballots may have been illegally collected” without making it clear which party’s candidate is facing allegations. The hosts then pivoted to yet another story on incoming freshman congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. [...]
Dana Perino, host of The Daily Briefing, hosted a segment which explained the allegations, but again did not say which party likely benefited from the alleged election fraud. Additionally, the segment pointed out that Harris was still technically in the lead by 905 votes, but did not specifically mention that the alleged election fraud very well could have impacted this outcome.
To be fair to the network, there has been plenty of other breaking news competing for viewers' limited attention of late. Tucker Carlson, for example, hosted a segment in which his guest warned that "feminism has ambitions to take over civilization" and are "trying to disappear males." It is difficult to focus on the validity of American elections when the very existence of menfolk is in question.
On this date at Daily Kos in 2004—Powell: won't seek political office:
While yesterday's Q-poll showed Colin Powell polling decently in hypothetical NY governor and senate races, the integrity-free outgoing secretary of state says he's not interested.
Secretary of State Colin Powell said Thursday he won't seek political office, dismissing suggestions that he run for governor or senator in New York.
Asked about a poll that shows him favored in a hypothetical matchup for the governor's race, Powell said, "I'm not going to be running for office even in my beloved home state of New York, as flattering as that poll might be." [...]
"I don't think I've ever said I wouldn't be interested in public life again," Powell said. "I think I've repeatedly said over the course of nine-plus years that I've had no interest in political office."
The GOP bench in NY is exactly one man deep without a Powell candidacy -- Giuliani. Expect state Republicans to keep talking up a Powell candidacy over the next two years as they grow increasingly desperate in their efforts to take on HIllary and hold the governorship.
