Hume Attacking DEMOCRATS for Voter Suppression Efforts

Reported by Janie - October 26, 2006 -

During the "Two Minutes of Hate" (AKA "Grapevine") segment on "Special Report" last night (10/25), host Brit Hume reported on voter registration fraud. One thousand guesses on which party he was referring to, and which party he neglected mentioning....

Hume claimed, "Federal authorities in Kansas City are investigating suspected voter registration fraud tied to the "Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now" — known as ACORN. Election officials say there are at least 15,000 registration cards with problems such as questionable information, and bogus names, addresses and social security numbers.

ACORN — which is associated with liberal causes — is also under scrutiny for similar problems in St. Louis and several other states. ACORN is blaming the errors on what it calls "honest mistakes." But the group's national spokesman admits some of its paid employees may have turned in false registration cards to make it appear they were actually working.

ACORN's work in Missouri is tied to its support for a ballot initiative that would raise the minimum wage."

Of course it was a "liberal" group! That's the only type of scandal Special Report cares to mention, and the only type of scandal related to voter fraud Hume will even touch.

There was no mention of the suspected voter registration fraud committed by the Republican National Committee in Tennessee.

There was no mention of the suspected voter fraud in Las Vegas by the Republican National Committee.

And there certainly was no coverage of any of the voter fraud committed in the 2004 election, or any other type of voter suppression currently under way.

It seems Hume has his blinders on to Republican corruption, and refuses to share the truth with his viewers - that there are bad guys on every side of the aisle.
