Where's FOX News' Concern About Voting Fraud Now?

Reported by Ellen - November 11, 2004 -

Before the election, FOX News was so preoccupied with voter fraud, that it established a special column called fraud file for this issue. But now that George Bush appears to have secured his victory, FOX News' coverage has dried up despite the public's continuing interest in this subject. Even the right-wing NewsMax.com has written about the topic (albeit dismissively). But with the exception of liberal Alan Colmes' FOX radio program, the rest of "Real Journalism, Fair and Balanced" FOX News seems to be missing or ignoring the story. It wouldn't be because they don't want any shadows over the GOP spotlight and its self-proclaimed mandate, would it?

Meanwhile, a bigger story is now looming on the horizon. The Green and Libertarian parties are going to demand a recount in Ohio. I wonder when/if FOX will decide this is news worth covering.

Comment: My own personal jury is out on this issue. On the one hand, what could be more important than investigating problems with our elections integrity? On the other hand, I don't think it's going to do anything to help block the radical Bush agenda, which is going forward as I type this, and could well divert attention, good will and resources from that fight, which I think is eminently winnable.

What do you all think? The subject is hereby open for News Hounds discussion.
