Letter to the Editor
The Republican controlled news media is blaming bloggers for reporting early that Kerry had won the election. As a blogger I find that amusing because we got our information from pollsters like John Zogby of the Zogby poll who announced the day before the election that Kerry was going to win by a landslide. We also got our information from the real results of the exit polls that showed Kerry winning by a landslide. Were bloggers like me wrong about what we reported? No – we weren’t.
The real story now is that with electronic voting on voting machines that are easily hacked, and in states like Ohio where the Secretary of State who counts the votes was also the state chairman for the Bush campaign, that the system is so riddled with fraud that we don’t know who really won the election. The real story is that in areas with voting machines that are easily tampered with that the supposed error in the exit polls are far greater than areas with paper ballots and the error was all in favor of Bush. But if you want the details of those stories – you won’t find that in the mainstream press. You have to get online and read the blogs.
