A TikTok social media influencer tried to manipulate online ratings for Joe Biden’s ABC News town hall event Thursday to deny President Trump a ratings win for his rival NBC News forum — but he failed, with Trump triumphant in YouTube clicks.
Today’s story is a perfect example of what I’m talking about when it comes to the fake polls and ratings created by the Liberal media to make you think that Joe Biden is way ahead of Donald Trump. He is not, and I will show you exactly why that is true. Half of the results the media reports is fake, the other is twisted and manipulated like the recent Town Hall ratings of both candidates.
TikTok superuser Hank Green told his nearly one million followers to watch the Joe Biden Town Hall on multiple devices to jack the ratings up, and by all accounts, that’s exactly what they did. But even with doing that, the Trump Town Hall nearly doubled the ratings of the Biden Town Hall event. Over on network television, something that most younger people avoid, the ratings were virtually even, with Biden slightly ahead. They call that a “statistical tie”, and it’s meaningless.
So ignoring the pounding that Biden took on YouTube, and focusing only on his slight lead on old-school network television watched mostly by old people, the fake news headlines are trumpeting a “Joe Biden Historic Ratings Win!” when it is nothing of the kind. Where it counted, online where the highly valuable 25-50 age demographic is, Joe Biden lost by almost 50% in the ratings. Don’t believe the hype, TikTok and fake polls, Donald Trump is doing fantastic, and that the last thing the fake news media wants you to know.
TikTok effort to manipulate Biden town hall YouTube ratings fails to beat Trump
FROM THE NY POST: Hank Green, who has a vast online following, implored TikTok users Thursday to watch Biden’s event on “every phone, television and computer.” His video appeal scored 1.2 million “likes” and more than 21,000 comments on TikTok, a China-owned platform popular among teens and young adults. As for TV viewership, Biden’s town hall drew more viewers than Trump’s, according to early figures.
An average of 13.9 viewers tuned in to ABC to watch Biden field questions from voters from 8 p.m. to 9 p.m., compared to 13.1 million who watched Trump do the same on NBC, MSNBC and CNBC, initial Nielsen ratings show. Biden’s town hall, meanwhile, had 2.9 million views on ABC News’ YouTube channel. Trump’s town hall had about 4.7 million views on YouTube distributed across NBC News, CNBC and CNBC television channels as of noon Friday.
The town halls replaced a scheduled second debate scrapped by the Commission on Presidential Debates after Trump’s COVID-19 diagnosis.
The events had a notable difference in tone. NBC News’ Savannah Guthrie kicked off Trump’s questioning with a 20-minute interview asking about white supremacy and his feelings on conspiracy theories. At one point, she likened him to “someone’s crazy uncle.” A flirty undecided voter later told Trump he looked handsome when he smiled.
Biden’s event was sedate and made few headlines. ABC News host George Stephanopoulos presided without grilling Biden, including about The Post’s reporting this week on Hunter Biden emails implicating the Democratic presidential candidate in his son’s lucrative business deals in Ukraine and China. It’s unclear how many people adhered to Green’s call to fix the digital ratings.
On Twitter, Green told his nearly 900,000 TikTok followers, “Trump’s NBC Town Hall is now taking place at the exact same time as Joe Biden’s previously scheduled Town Hall. The only explanation I can imagine for this is that Trump wants to talk about how he got better ratings.”
Newsweek reports that in addition to streaming Biden’s town hall on multiple devices, “another tactic that TikTok users implemented to try to boost Biden’s ratings involved opening up YouTube using multiple Google accounts in multiple tabs.” READ MORE
Everything You Missed From Joe Biden’s Town Hall
Instead of doing their job and asking Joe Biden tough questions, they conducted his Town Hall like you were speaking to your grandfather in the nursing home. Over at Trump’s Town Hall, they went after him like a shark smelling blood in the water, and still couldn’t beat him. Even the combined might of TikTok couldn’t lay a glove on him.
