The worst legacy of the Trump fiasco has been the endless repetition of his big lie that Biden’s election was fraudulent.

Fortunately, our major media have repeatedly told us the truth, but we learn that 70 percent of GOP voters don’t believe it!

What that says about the GOP is not as important as what the rest of us do now!

That task is to keep repeating that Trump’s lie is a blatant lie and a continuing attack on our democracy!

Read here about a welcome effort by a smaller paper to keep up the story.

That the Justice Department probe of Rudy Giuliani will further the exposure of Trump corruption is indicated more daily in our legitimate electronic and print media! FOX is no longer in that category.

The journalists at WITF, an all-news public radio station in Harrisburg, Pa., made a perfectly reasonable decision a few months ago.

They decided they wouldn’t shrug off the damaging lies of election denialism.

They wouldn’t do what too many in Big Journalism have done in recent months: shove into the memory hole the undemocratic efforts by some Republican elected officials to delegitimize or overturn the 2020 presidential election.

Too many Sunday news shows repeatedly book the likes of Kevin McCarthy, Ted Cruz and Ron Johnson without reminding viewers how these members of Congress tried to undo the results of the election—and encouraged the Trumpian lies about election fraud that led to the violent assault on the U.S. Capitol less than four months ago. A rare exception is CNN’s “State of the Union,” which hasn’t booked a single member of the so-called Sedition Caucus since January.
