Why isn't the national media all over ‘e-voting fraud’ like stink on a monkey?
I personally e-mailed the Associated Press offices in New York and San Francisco about the volumes of feedback I received from readers since I first wrote about electronic voting fraud … I also called our local NBC affiliate, KCRA Channel 3. All I hear is crickets. Nobody wants to touch this with a 10-foot pole.
I don't know the specifics of why the US media aren't giving e-voting problems the amount of coverage they deserve but certainly part of the problem is the technical nature of the issue – not that many journalists really get it and few editors feel that readers will understand. But in my experience most people do get it when given just the simple facts.
