Ohio register-and-vote drive translates to vote fraud on FOX

Reported by Chrish - October 2, 2008 -

FOX and Friends did a segment this morning 10/02/08 that questions the motives and integrity of get-out-the-vote drives in Ohio. Over the banner "Partisan Push?" they bemoaned the Supreme Court ruling that allowed same-day registration and voting, wondering if the drivers in that action were telling citizens how to vote.
With video.

They interviewed Shelby Holliday of Palestra.net, an organization of, by and for college students. Despite her denials that she saw any partisanship, the Friends managed to convey their suspicion that the homeless people being transported to the polls (most shown on the screen were African-American) were being selected and coached to vote for Obama.

Videos at Palestra, specifically the ones titled "Ohio Students Vote Early," "Voters In Ohio: Are They Residents?" and "How Informed Are New Ohio Voters?" allayed the fears that ineligible voters would run away with the election, but FOX viewers did not get that information. (Note that the Palestra reporter identified herself as "Shelby Holliday of Palestra.net for FOX News." Makes one wonder just what the relationship between those two organizations is.)

This is just more piling on with the "vote fraud" fears so in the likely event of an Obama win, FOX viewers will have their doubts and their excuses all ready.
