70. "...he makes us look bad." --jobycom
Who is "us"?


"...and that't the reason no investigative journalist is paying attention to such numbers."--jobycom

You determined this scientifically, did you? How many journalists did you ask, as to why they aren't paying attention to such numbers? And, how many journalists are there in the world?

You're just guessing. I could put forward an equally--and, actually, much better--hypothesis, and that is that journalists are paid good money by war profiteering corporate news monopolies to ignore all evidence that Bush lost, and especially to ignore the evidence commissioned by the war profiteering corporate news monopolies, their own exit polls, which they fiddled on election night to "fit" the results of Diebold's and ES&S's secret formulae.

Anyway, considering what Judith Miller, Bob Novak and Bob Woodward have done to this country, with their "journalism," I wouldn't be inclined to give a crap what corporate journalists did or did not pay attention to. Is "journalist" some sort of guarantee of the integrity of information, or the importance of a subject for investigation, in your view? Who, among corporate news journalists, would you name, as particularly reliable? I can't think of a single one of them that I trust any more. Tens of thousands of innocent people were slaughtered because of them. Our democracy lay in ruins because of them. They have failed us, catastrophically. And you are putting THEM up here as some sort of measure of the accuracy and aptness of information?

As Patrick Fitzgerald said at his press conference, when asked about the Republican "talking point" that his indictment of Scooter Libby was a trivial matter: "That talking point won't fly!"
