UPDATE NOV 10, 2022: California has dropped all charges against Eugene Yu, citing lack of evidence and ‘potential bias.’ READ: Charges dropped against election software CEO accused of data theft

It is not surprising that the vast majority of Americans don’t trust the mainstream media. In fact, a 2021 poll revealed only 29% of Americans stated they completely trusted the legacy media.

In this story about the New York Times, Breitbart explains why no one trusts them. Coincidentally, it involved two stories on Communist China, an American-based voting software company and the data of American election workers. One was published on Oct 3, 2022, and the second on Oct 4, 2022.

Breitbart provides the details:

On October 3, the New York Times published an article by reporter Stuart Thompson titled “How a Tiny Elections Company Became a Conspiracy Theory Target,” in which he claimed that “election deniers” were targeting Konnech, a Michigan election software firm with just 21 U.S. employees, and had developed a theory with “threadbare evidence” that the company had tied to the Chinese Communist Party and had given the Chinese government backdoor access to the personal data of around two million poll workers in the United States.

Thompson suggested that such beliefs were ridiculous and anyone suggesting there was validity to these claims was simply an “election denier,” spinning conspiracy theories.

On October 4, just one day later, the NYT published another article from Thompson titled “Election Software Executive Arrested on Suspicion of Theft,” in which he reported that Eugene Yu, the CEO of Konnech, had been arrested under suspicion of theft after U.S. user data was found stored in China — exactly what the “election deniers” that Thompson had derided claimed.
