If you read that Georgia was a swing state, you were reading fake news.

We've heard an awful lot about "that's the end of Pizzagate"

But we know absolutly nothing about the guy that showed up with a gun. Since when does the media ignore the white guy that showed up with a gun?

Why doesn't " Edgar Welch" have his own link to a Wiki article, surely Wiki thinks he's noteworthy enough?

The MSM seems more obsessed with Pizzagate than the alternative media?

I'm sure it was their own counter leak to weaken the more damaging real leaks.

It was never taken serious by anyone but the MSM, and apparently some Loon that never existed before December 9th.

That was opinion polls, and polls have been proven wrong many times, does not mean

* That they are NOT news
* Any methodology is not perfect

So comparing opinion polls with fake news ( like Pizzagate) is like comparing apples to stones ( not even oranges)

If you think a story about Georgia potentially being a swing state is fake news, then you're an idiot.

There's really no way to sugarcoat it.

Sorrry, big puff pieces about how Georgia is a swing state IS big news. That it didn't come to pass by a wide margin is fake news.

There were tons of other polls that said there would be no substantial change in Georgia's voting pattern. Yet the one that benefited the Establishment Candidate was pushed and pushed hard and often, like Christy Canyon in the 80s.

Are you implying that Russia used the DHS computer to hack the Georgia voting machines?
