Politico Scrambles To Declare Putin’s Victory ‘Rigged,’ But Seems To Forget About Having Scolded Trump For Similar Rhetoric

Last Updated on March 17, 2024

The mainstream media is scrambling to declare Russian president Vladimir Putin’s election win Sunday as “rigged,” despite overwhelming support for the nationalist leader in Russia. The media seems to have forgotten how maniacally it railed against President Donald J. Trump for claiming that the extremely disputed 2020 election was rigged. Why the change in editorial tone?

Putin won Sunday’s Russian presidential election with just under 88 percent of the vote, according to exit polls as of press time.

Politico, a website based in Northern Virginia that was previously called The Politico, ran the headline “Putin ‘wins’ rigged Russian election with 87% of the vote.”


Did Politico forget about their previous “work” on the subject of someone calling an election rigged?
