CBS Tells Companies How To ‘Help Fight’ Georgia’s New Voting Law, Spreads Misinformation

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


CBS News, in a tweet pushing what was supposed to be a straight news story, promoted an article as an explainer for how “companies can help fight Georgia’s restrictive new voting law.”

The article itself isn’t as blatantly propagandistic, though it does give activists a platform for spreading continued misinformation and asking corporations to hurt the people of Georgia due to their elected officials’ political decisions. The CBS tweet said the article contained “3 ways companies can help fight Georgia’s restrictive new voting law,” but the article claims those three points are simply what activists are “asking for.”CBS falsely presents Georgia’s new voting reform, claiming the bill contains “a measure that requires voters to present a photo ID when voting by mail.” This is untrue. The bill requires people to list their driver’s license or state voting card number on their absentee ballot. Such numbers are required for numerous official government forms.

The CBS article also accepts activist alarmism that limiting the time people have to request an absentee ballot and where ballot drop boxes can be placed amounts to racist voter suppression, even though a Washington Post fact check found that experts the newspaper spoke to said “the net effect [of the law] was to expand the opportunities to vote for most Georgians, not limit them.”

The Post also found that claims from President Joe Biden and others about the Georgia law allegedly restricting the times that people could vote were false. The Daily Wire previously reported:Specifically, the Post found that while Biden and others claimed the new law “ends voting hours early so working people can’t cast their vote after their shift is over.” As the Post noted, the new law does no such thing.

Critics of the bill also falsely claimed the new Georgia bill would prohibit food or drink from being passed out to people waiting in line to vote. As The Daily Wire previously reported, the bill does not prevent people waiting in line to vote from receiving food or water, but politicians and their staff cannot provide it in an effort to secure votes. Poll workers can pass out water or food as they see fit.

The Daily Wire’s Amanda Prestigiacomo also reminded critics of the Georgia law, who claim requiring voters to present ID in order to vote is racist, that African-Americans don’t see it that way.

Biden and other prominent Democrats, like failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, have pushed these numerous falsehoods about the bill, while the media dutifully published them without noting the factual inaccuracies.

While the CBS article purports to be straight news, it completely relies on activist misinformation while pushing boycotts of certain politicians and urging passage of a federal law supported by Democrats that would eradicate states’ rights to set their own election laws. This misinformation from politicians and the media has already led to the MLB moving its all-star game and draft out of Atlanta, with economic consequences.
