How Governor Ron DeSantis Manipulates the Media

From a story on by Judd Legum headlined “How DeSantis manipulates the media”:

On August 18, in a “campaign-style event,” Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) announced that 20 people had been arrested “for breaking Florida’s elections laws.” In a press release, DeSantis’ office set aside the presumption of innocence, branding the group “election criminals.” The accused, according to DeSantis, were previously stripped of their right to vote after being convicted of murder or a felony sexual offense but voted in the 2020 election.
