Not Again!

Headline: New voting glitches raise concerns in Florida

Welcome back to Palm Beach County, where the more things change, the more they stay the same.

Alex Johnson and Kerry Sanders published this story virtually dismissing any ethics involved with their journalism. Although many facts and figures were presented, there was an obvious liberal tone to the article.

For instance-

Off to court they went. A state judge ordered another tally. No result was announced because, while the missing 3,500 votes were found in a warehouse, a fresh batch of 159 that were counted the first time could not be read.

Although the 2000 presidential election in Florida was confusing and misunderstood by many residents, the journalists in this article attribute many of the blunders to the government. Not taking into account the elderly population and the stereotypical absentmindedness attributed to them.

Although the journalists present both sides of the story, the judge and government officials are portrayed in a negative light and are literally made fun of throughout the article.

It is a shame that of all media outlets, MSNBC shows bias on the TODAY show. A shame.

MSNBC ran this story on September 24, 2008 on the TODAY SHOW on NBC. It was posted on later that day.
