|About a year
ago, Paul Edwards designed,
printed, photocopied, and hung simple text posters reading:
IRAQ IS A
THAT POSES A
That's never been more true than
today. A major military offensive is launched the day after the election,
diverting media attention from mounting evidence of election fraud. What
to do about it? Demand more balanced coverage from your media!
|Remember, editors are human.
They respond to pressure from their "constituency." Here's a quick email
I sent to
Post-Intelligencer, and the
Times (the daily news sources I encounter most frequently):
To Whom It May Concern:
What happens in Iraq is of interest, but it does not merit daily blow-by-blow
front page coverage. Not when evidence of election fraud continues to mount.
What happens in Fallujah has far less bearing on the freedom and security
of the American people than does the undermining of its democratic processes.
Election 2004 is not over until the vote count is certified on
December 14, 2004. Please devote more conspicuous coverage
to incidents of polling and counting irregularities as they arise. For helpful
