Democrats.Com : deliberate distortion of the Miami-Dade recount story by the Miami Herald

Media Deliberately Distorts Miami-Dade Recount Story

WASHINGTON - February 26, 2001 - Democrats.com today exposed the deliberate distortion of the Miami-Dade recount story by the Miami Herald, USA Today, and the national news media. In addition, Democrats.com published an investigative report documenting the failure of election officials in eight counties to count 'write-in overvotes', as required by Florida law.

Democrats.com co-founder Bob Fertik published an article entitled, 'Bush Propaganda Machine Distorts Miami-Dade Recount Story,' which described the media's distortion as a continuation of a propaganda campaign by the Bush campaign that began on Election Day, when George W. Bush unexpectedly found himself trailing in Florida. Fertik's article is available here: http://democrats.com/view.cfm?id=1604

'Today's misleading headlines by the Miami Herald and USA Today are just another attempt to legitimize Bush's stolen presidency,' said Bob Fertik, co-founder of Democrats.com.
