The democratic process requires the counting of all votes. Donald Trump however, wants counting to stop in critical states where he has a lead at a time when the intermediate results suit him. Can you believe it ! Knowing that most of the yet to be counted votes are not for him, he simply wants these to remain uncounted. Ugggghh
Now he gets even more droll by saying: Oh we won by the early votes, so the late votes should be ignored as he considers them as illegal. How can a president of the USA talk like this ?
How bad can it be ? Influencers with bad agendas using social media and people fall for it. Uncomfortable journalists are neutralised by fabricated indecent videos. This TED Radio Hour programs on NPR sheds light on a dark matter.
Here is an example of fake news being used to change people’s minds. Turkey was not joining the EU. This was one of the lies used to manipulate British voters – and it worked. Such ads were send to “persuadeable targets”, we never saw those ads. The UK parliament forced Facebook to reveal them.
