    If this is the fun part of this thread, I thought the Space Laser was over the top...but I was wrong.
    Italygate is giving it a run for its money.
    ...he went up late, and I was already up there.

    Never heard of it. Sounds like standard counter psych ops to lump a potentially plausible yet controversial theory with an absurd one as the article begins with the voter fraud theory/Trump won theory with a ridiculous one.

    Italygate is not something discussed in any right leaning articles I read which makes me wonder who is prapagating it.

    I was fascinated that the Chief of Staff at the WH tried to get DOJ to investigate. Guess it was too much even for them.

    One of those. Please look at this and report back if/when it makes any sense.

    Media seems to love this nonsense. Gets eyeballs, confirms bias, sells ads…

    This must be heating up at WaPo because one of the sites I read posted about it. Basically the paper used sources known for story fabrication in an effort to delegitimize the former Prez and anyone calling for audits. Like I said, counter Intel to discredit a potentially legitimate question/concern/process. Pretty standard work for the media to push an agenda and serve up red meat to readers and sell ads.

    The media has been struggling to control the message/language since the Information Age. However currently tactics seem to be moving towards speech codes and consensus (obedience) rather than debate.

    I think you make some good points.
    Marshall's reporters have been trying to track this latest bizarro story.
    It appears some of the people had an inside track to Meadows at the WH, so he was able to take their nonsense and pass it along to DOJ.
    Seems as if things were a little crazy in the administration in the final weeks, and this is just one of the more crazy things floating about.
