So @washingtonpost had article about how Google had not removed ads containing blatant misinformation about voting by mail. Then FOX attacks WaPo for treating absentee balloting and mail in balloting the same. They are. The "expert" criticizing Wapo has no elections background.
To the extent Trump and Fox are drawing a distinction between places where everyone automatically gets a mailed ballot and "absentee" states where one must request a ballot, almost every state is absentee. And full mail in states like Utah have very LOW rates of fraud.
I expect this faux distinction will melt away if Trump at the end of the election ends up attacking the security of mail-in ballots in states like Pennsylvania and Michigan, both of which would be "absentee" states in this definition.
Besides the 5 states w/ all-mail elections, CA and NV are only other states I know of that plan to send ballots to all active registered voters.Neither will send to INACTIVE voters, though Nevada did in the primary and I've seen no evidence of widespread fraud as Trump predicted
What's funny about the Fox news article is the framing of it as an attack on WaPo for getting the facts wrong. What a weird stretch and framing. Seems like someone started with a conclusion and tried to shoehorn in some evidence.
