53. CM (corporate media) and GAO....CM is the subject of the report
I wish I could remember the user who came up with this obvious truth, but the CM is complicit.

The real nexis is the suppression, by CM, of the raw data from the National and State Election Polls. We can complain about Edison Mitofsky, the pollsters, all we want (and we will) but they did these polls for a client, the media group (Networks, CNN, Washington Post, etc.). When Conyers wrote EM and said show us the data, CM could have stepped in and said, show them the data (while maintaining confidentiality for respondents). They didn't. Why? Don't know but the fact that they didn't is on the record. Will they cover themselves doing a cover up...Headline: "Cover up exposed by those covering up!"

On larger scale, they are in the don't rock the boat category. NBC makes good money for GE but GE makes damn good money and has a huge business without NBC. You think they're going to let NBC mess with them. Same with the press. The best stuff I see in the print media on election fraud, and it is emerging lately, is in regional or local papers.....NEVER IN THE CORPORATE PRINT MEDIA.

Keep up your great work!
