“In January, CIA Director Mike Pompeo said this: ‘It’s pretty clear about what took place, about Russian involvement in efforts to hack information and have an impact on American democracy. It is something that America needs to take seriously.'”

When the media is biased against candidates, or when the media’s predictions of election results cause people not to bother voting, the media has more negative impact on American democracy than Russia could ever have.
