A ProPublica/Washington Post analysis of Facebook posts, internal company documents and interviews, provides the clearest evidence yet that the social media giant played a critical role in spreading lies that fomented the violence of Jan. 6.
At least five Jan. 6ers are gearing up for gubernatorial races, among them Doug Mastriano, a Pennsylvania state senator and a leading voice in the national movement to discredit the 2020 election results.
Why is the conventional wisdom suggesting that Democrats are doomed this cycle so wrong? Analysts are failing to compare to the relevant baseline. Nationally, the 2021 maps are unfair, but not as unfair as 2011.
