Pundits from across the political spectrum have questioned media outlets who suddenly determined Joe Biden had won the election after days of counting mail-in ballots, often illegally behind closed doors with no Republican observers.
Constitutional scholar and pundit Mark Levin, while interviewing former special prosecutor Ken Starr, seemed to lambast his own network, Fox News, for their early call.
