    The Sunday Read: ‘A Republican Election Clerk vs. Trump Die-Hards in a World of Lies’

    The Sunday Read: ‘A Republican Election Clerk vs. Trump Die-Hards in a World of Lies’

    Cindy Elgan glanced into the lobby of her office and saw a sheriff’s deputy waiting at the front counter. “Let’s start a video recording, just in case this goes sideways,” Elgan, 65, told one of her employees in the Esmeralda County clerk’s office. She had come to expect skepticism, conspiracy theories and even threats related to her job as an election administrator. She grabbed her annotated booklet of Nevada state laws, said a prayer for patience and walked into the lobby to confront the latest challenge to America’s electoral process.

    The deputy was standing alongside a woman that Elgan recognized as Mary Jane Zakas, 77, a longtime elementary schoolteacher and a leader in the local Republican Party. She often asked for a sheriff’s deputy to accompany her to the election’s office, in case her meetings became contentious.

    “I hope you’re having a blessed morning,” Zakas said. “Unfortunately, a lot of people are still very concerned about the security of their votes. They’ve lost all trust in the system.”

    After the 2020 election, former President Donald J. Trump’s denials and accusations of voter fraud spread outward from the White House to even the country’s most remote places, like Esmeralda County. Elgan knew most of the 620 voters in the town. Still, they accused her of being paid off and skimming votes away from Trump. And even though their allegations came with no evidence, they wanted her recalled from office before the next presidential election in November.

    Why Britain Just Ended 14 Years of Conservative Rule

Best news podcast

Best format for news podcast, hands down. “What else you need to know today” is something that, weirdly, most other news podcasts completely miss. I have been listening since the very first episode, I genuinely enjoy the podcast as much as I would enjoy watching a netflix documentary, with the bonus that this is actually quality journalism. Thank you for your hard work.

Disappointing inability to deliver objective news

The NYT’s reporting and the Daily in particular continues to disappoint, especially as it relates to their reporting on Palestine/Israel. The latest episodes in which their host and bureau chief spend most of the episode parroting the Israeli government’s talking points.

Typical American propaganda

If you want to listen to a light stories and trivial stuff, this is your best podcast! If you are looking for genuine and meaningful content sorry , you should look somewhere else !
