It happily spread stories of President Trump's "collusion" with Russia for years – a truly idiotic conspiracy for which no evidence ever emerged – and is stifling any mention that COVID-19 could have emerged from a lab leak in China.

The 67-page bill would roll back Covid-19 innovations like Harris County’s drive-through voting and 24-hour voting. It’s hardly crazy to think polling-place shenanigans might be more likely to happen at 3 a.m.”
