The Media Is Increasingly Using One Phrase To Describe Trump Allies

Media outlets have increased the use of the phrases “election denier” and “election deniers,” using the terms more than one thousand times since Aug. 1, according to the founder of Grabien Media and confirmed by the Daily Caller News Foundation.

“If it seems like you’re suddenly hearing the term ‘election deniers’ everywhere in media, it’s because you are,” Tom Elliott posted on Twitter Sunday evening, posting a graphic showing the term was used twice as often in the first six days of August than the entire month of July.

The Daily Caller News Foundation confirmed Elliott’s figures from January through July, but noted that the term had been used 1,087 times since Aug. 1 through Aug. 8, as opposed to the 1,037 reported by Elliot. The terms “election denier” and “election deniers” were used 499 times on CNN, and another 275 times on MSNBC during that timeframe.

“There are many election deniers, many people who pretend or actually believe that the 2020 election was corrupt despite all the evidence, and some of these deniers are winning GOP primaries,” CNN host Brian Stelter said on “Reliable Sources” Sunday, in one prominent usage of the term.

MSNBC host Mehdi Hasan also used the term to refer to Johnny Gibbs, who defeated Republican Rep. Peter Meijer of Michigan, in an Aug. 2 primary.

“[Meijer] lost his primary to Trump backed election denier Johnny Gibbs,” Hasan said.

CNN host Dana Bash also referred to Gibbs as an “election denier” on “State of the Union” Sunday.

Panels on CNN have criticized Democrats for outwardly supporting candidates endorsed by former President Donald Trump. Many of the candidates have supported Trump’s unsubstantiated claims about the 2020 election.

Grabien, CNN and MSNBC did not immediately respond to requests for comment from the Daily Caller News Foundation.
