Today’s paragraphs come from…..
……well, this time we’re going to look at the paragraphs first. Then we’ll discuss where they came from.
Here they are:
The public is understandably concerned about the integrity of (the 2016) election.
Hackers could create mischief — some say “chaos” — but the election system is resilient enough to withstand shocks. The key concern, experts feel, is public perception: Sowing distrust is easily achieved even without successful hacks.
Here are five things you should know about the security of the election system.
The American election system is decentralized by design, with state, county and local governments all managing voting. Even though many precincts use voting machines, none are connected to the Internet, nor are they connected to each other.
The article goes on, but I think you get the idea.
Now, with venues, like CNN for example, having spent over a year hyperventilating over the prospect that Russians colluded with Donald Trump to steal the election, where did this 180 degree-different point of view come from?
Uh….would you believe CNN?
What you just read came straight from Tal Kopan’s article at cnn.com, dated October 19, 2016 – less than three weeks before the 2016 election took place.
Maybe CNN ought to take a few moments out of its daiy Trump/Russia collusion onslaught and read it today. Over and over and over again.
I award Ms. Kopan Paragraphs Of The Day honors for writing an informational article with a common-sense conclusion. And I award CNN an honorable mention for having no problem publishing it….until Hillary Clinton lost, at which time the geniuses over there earned a major-leage DIShonorable mention for deciding to forget every word.
