Ohio election outcome repeatedly put in doubt on FOX
Reported by Chrish - October 8, 2008 -
Is it misdirection, or are they warming viewers up to the idea of a showdown? Whichever the case, FOX and Friends sure spends a lot of time speculating about the outcome and the possibilities of shenanigans there. Today 10/07/08 they had Ken Blackwell, Ohio's former Secretary of State, as the sole guest to discuss "voter fraud" and the chance it might swing the election. This continues the meme on FOX that individual instances of fraud are so numerous and well-coordinated, a conspiracy, really, that they alone are to be scrutinized. Again, never mind voter roll purges, hackable machines, insufficient numbers of equipment at the polls in targeted areas, vote caging, compromised software, and dirty Secretaries of State - it's literally the Mickey Mouse stuff that has their full attention.
Blackwell claims that the disaster has been averted with the attention heaped on the issue this past week - after all these years, all it took was a few dozen teevee segments to scare the ACORN machine away. (The ACORN logo was prominent on the screen.) Steve Doocy insinuates that the problem of illegal votes is so hu-u-uge - thousands! - that it can swing an election.
Blackwell claims that Obama ran unopposed in his first election because his opponents were disqualified for technicalities in petitions, but is now supporting ACORN and arguing that new voter registrations they are collecting are being unfairly scrutinized.
