On Saturday numerous media outlets made a “call” that Joe Biden has won the state of Pennsylvania putting him over the edge for the number of electoral votes needed to claim the US Presidency, after a week of highs and lows with lawsuits still outstanding and with millions of Americans uneasy about the integrity of the American voting system.
Nonetheless, some major media institutions declared that Joe Biden was the winner, including CNN, whose political pundit Van Jones, made emotional statements of victory for Biden.
But not all of the well read media outlets were in agreement that it was wise to make such announcements, including Project Veritas, who posted that they were not making a call at all.
Twitter was censoring people who disagreed with the call, that they themselves were promoting.
There is a great division in the American media over the “news” with The Hill promoting Drudge Report mocking President Donald J. Trump:
Newsmax reacted to the news about American Media rushing in to make claims and wrote:
Mainstream media has announced Democrat Joe Biden defeated President Donald Trump to become the 46th president of the United States on Saturday, positioning himself to lead a nation gripped by historic pandemic and a confluence of economic and social turmoil.
His projected victory, which has not be called by Newsmax TV, came after more than three days of uncertainty as election officials sorted through a surge of mail-in votes that delayed the processing of some ballots. Biden crossed 270 Electoral College votes with a win in Pennsylvania.
President Trump tweeted in defiance of the declarations shortly before they came across a number of news organizations:
“I WON THIS ELECTION, BY A LOT!”
Biden, 77, staked his candidacy less on any distinctive political ideology than on galvanizing a broad coalition of voters around the notion that Trump posed an existential threat to American democracy. The strategy proved effective, resulting in pivotal victories in Michigan and Wisconsin as well as Pennsylvania, one-time Democratic bastions that had flipped to Trump in 2016.”
Numerous people reacted similarly to the news that the state of PA had been called for Democrat Presidential candidate Joe Biden.
In law, evidence is inadmissible unless it conforms to the chain of custody. The problem w/ this election was the ballot chain of custody was broken, from ballots flooding the streets to being returned in a manner that invited the biggest fraud in the history of our elections.— Robert Barnes (@Barnes_Law) November 7, 2020

One outlet declared Biden President-elect, when in fact that is not close to being the truth:
