For weeks, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Democratic candidate Rita Hart had been plotting to steal an Iowa House seat from Republican Congresswoman Mariannette Miller-Meeks, who rightfully won the election back in 2020. But on Wednesday, Hart called it quits on her dubious efforts and NewsBusters couldn’t help but notice that the likes of ABC, CBS, and NBC refused to give airtime to the scheme at any point from start to finish.
As NewsBusters previously reported, the evening newscasts from these networks were refusing to cover the Democratic plot to undo the results of an election certified by a bipartisan panel of Iowa election officials.
They later refused to tell viewers about how Pelosi had claimed it was her “right” to erroneously ignore the will of the voters in Iowa-2 and supplant Miller-Meeks with a Democrat of her choosing, in this case, Hart. And at the time, Iowa Republican leaders were calling it a “coup.”
Luckily, Hart called it quits, but didn’t leave the scene quietly.
