Toronto Star media columnist Antonia Zerbisias looks at all the left-wing chatter in the U.S. about voting irregularities in the Nov. 2 presidential election, looks at the paucity of coverage in the mainstream media (MSM), and asks why.
Actually, she answers her question.
… Journalism is dead while stenography lives and thrives.
Just like they did in the run-up to the invasion of Iraq, the media are not asking the questions they should be asking.
I am not saying that, given all the irregularities put together, the election outcome would be any different. I am just wondering why there's been precious little probing of the problems and how they must be fixed before the next election.
Of course, driving all these charges of election hijacking is a healthy dose of paranoia based on the all-too-real 2000 election mess. Mix in bewilderment over how so many Americans swallowed the Bush administration lies about 9/11 and Iraq with a generous helping of sore loserdom — and you have the perfect recipe for a conspiracy theory.
But this is one cow pie that stinks to high heaven. You have to wonder why the media aren't sniffing around it.
