Yet another perfectly rational (exciting?) step along the path to the death of democracy.
When all political news is suspect and countered with equal but opposite ‘facts’, voters become apathetic or rabidly believe only the news that reinforces their beliefs.
When a candidate loses, their disappointed supporters will assume the election was stolen by exploiting the stupidity of opposing voters. Why should intelligent voters for candidate A suffer for the incompetence of supporters of candidate B?
Soon any action required to insure the ‘correct’ outcome will seem justifiable. Democracy becomes a shambling zombie, only awaiting a politician with the will and nerve to stab it in the head and roll the corpse into the gutter, clearing the path to righteous action.
