Newspaper studies confirm Democrat Gore won Florida vote
By Patrick Martin
5 February 2001

Two newly published studies of the ballots cast in the US presidential election confirm that Democrat Al Gore was the choice of more Florida voters than Republican George W. Bush, who was installed as president after an unprecedented and anti-democratic intervention by the US Supreme Court.

One study was conducted by the Washington Post, the other by Tribune Co., which owns the Chicago Tribune, the Orlando Sentinel, and the Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel. The Post endorsed Gore editorially in the November election, while the Tribune endorsed Bush.

1. For a minute there, your header made me think maybe WaPo had

admitted they were WRONG, that Gore won and Bush stole it with the help of SCOTUS.

That had to be too good to be true, of course, damn them.

:hi: Nice to see you, it seems like ages since I've seen you post. This is like a giant cocktail party where you never know who's left and who's in another room.

4. They're never going to stop saying that
Eventually, they hope, it will become the common wisdom. Maybe it already has.
