MSM hit piece documenting media efforts to denigrate the AZ audit:
Hit piece on AZ audit that mocks legit security concerns
Their title: Arizona's election audit get any more laughable? (It can and just did)
Opinion: The Senate's audit of Maricopa County's vote just got more absurd, if that's even possible anymore
by Laurie Roberts 4-20-21
On Friday morning, an Arizona Republic reporter was kicked out of Veterans Memorial Coliseum.
This, for committing the horrifying sin of taking a picture of former Rep. Anthony Kern as he recounted our ballots.
Here’s the picture.
[CAP 1 - tweet showing Kern counting ballots with the comment "Looks like we have former AZ lawmaker Anthony Kern counting ballots" - notice the tone?]
Fourteen minutes later, reporter Ryan Randazzo – who was serving as the media’s pool reporter because apparently there isn’t room for more than one in this 14,870-seat arena – was given the bum’s rush from the building.
“Well, a man in a cowboy hat and a badge that said Wake TSI just came over, asked if I tweeted the picture of Anthony Kern, and when I said yes he escorted me out of the building and said my press privileges were ‘revoked’.”
The auditors claim Randazzo violated a court order and somehow compromised voter privacy.
It's doxing to photo a public official?
About as laughable as the notion that what Republicans are calling “America’s audit” – conducted and largely paid for by Trump supporters – is, in any way, credible.
Naturally, Senate President Karen Fann, R-Prescott, was horrified at this morning’s development.
Oh, not that Kern, a #StoptheSteal supporter who was on the steps of the U.S. Capitol on the day Trump supporters stormed the building, was part of the audit team now recounting the votes.
She was horrified that a reporter would dare to show the public he was recounting votes.
“Under agreement with your attorney, media was given wider access with the promise they would not zoom in on workers faces or the ballots,” Fann tweeted. “Some media members have violated that agreement.”
Fann went on to tweet that the media agreed they “would not dox the workers for their safety.”
So now it’s doxing to show you who is handling our ballots? To take a picture of a public figure in a public building involved in what absolutely should be an intensely public process?
This is where we are, Sen. Fann?
