Death of National Media imminent in few years
John Kerry conceded on November 3rd, 2004. This election, when the dust settles will go down to history as an election that was rigged with fraud, manipulation and hacking of the vote.
However, on November 14, a New York Times editorial delivered the final verdict on what is now the conventional wisdom amongst media:
There is no evidence of vote theft or errors on a large scale.
There is also no way to be sure that the nightmare scenario of electronic voting critics did not occur: votes surreptitiously shifted from one candidate to another inside the machines, by secret software. Its important to make it clear that there is no evidence such a thing happened, but there will be concern and conspiracy theories until all software used in elections is made public.
American mainstream media journalists are sheep mentality. Well let me be little more respectful to them and say they have IQ as nearly as Cows. No major media covered the Election 'red flags'. Either they failed to recognize it or deliberately ignored it.
A lot of Americans saw a clear disconnect between the exit polls, optical scanner machines favoring Bush and more. However the Internet, especially the bloggers, 1 man media operations, individual guys like myself who jumped in to fill in the gaps what New York Times, et. al. Could not provide. Cable and Dish changed the Television landscape for Network guys. The Blogosphere will do the same.
And that is my point.
