Bush stole the White House just do not forget that

Corporate Media Try to Coverup Bush Loss in Florida

How many votes Gore would have received if ALL the indented ballots had
been counted in all counties in Florida? The ballots in Duvall county
cannot be counted because of a judicial investigation about voter
irregularities (a fact ignored in mainstream coverage). However, the
counts of indented ballots have already revealed a Bush loss.
Mainstream media reports deliberately obscure this fact.

The mainstream media today launched a major campaign to cover up Bush
loss in Florida. Many independent observers, unconnected with the major
media outlets, recognize that the recounts of indented ballots in
Florida have resulted in a clear loss for Bush.

However, the mainstream media owners, in a concerted effort, by the
technique of narrow partial reporting, are trying to bolster Bush
false claim to legitimacy.

For example, the Associated Press reported:
Gore falls short in ballot review. Miami-Dade gain wouldnąt have
topped 49 votes.

AP concluded that even if the votes in Broward and Volusia were
counted, Gore would have only have gained minimally, and that Bush
would still have won.

CBS affiliates, and other major media outlets reported the story. What
they all ignored was how many votes Gore would have received if ALL the
indented ballots had been counted in all counties in Florida. The
ballots in Duvall county cannot be counted because if an judicial
investigation about voter irregularities (a fact ignored in mainstream
coverage). However, the counts of indented ballots have already
revealed a Bush loss. Consider the following:

1) The Orlando Sentinel reported that Bush fell behind Gore by over
four hundred votes in the total statewide count, based on the results
of the new tabulations in Lake and Broward Counties.

2) The Guardian of London printed a story revealing that recounts in
Hillsborough and several other counties put Bush behind in Florida.

3) The Washington Post earlier this month reported that Gore beat Bush
based solely on the results of recent tabulations in Orange County and
16 other counties where paper ballots were used.

4) The Palm Beach Post reports that, based only on the tabulated
results in Palm Beach County of indented ballots, Bush lost statewide
by over 150 votes.

When Bush pulled ahead by six votes in recounts in Miami Dade, it was
front page news. When Bush clearly lost statewide, by hundreds of
votes, according to recounts in other counties, the news was totally
ignored by mainstream media outlets. Only foreign newspapers (like the
London Observer-Guardian) printed the full story. Only small
newspapers, like the Orlando Sentinel printed the facts, in small
stories on back pages.

On one CBS affiliate talk show, the news editor of the Miami
Herald was asked point blank what the counts statewide have revealed.
He dodged the question, and went on to another topic.

The corporations have decided they like Bush, they want to keep Bush in
power, and they donąt want his legitimacy questioned. The mainstream
media do not simply represent the interests of corporations. The
mainstream media ARE CORPORATIONS.
