When will our left/liberal press wake up? Until they do, they are no less complicit in the theft of our elections than Karl Rove himself.
Kudos to Brad Friedman for fighting back so bravely, and so lucidly.
‘Think Progress’ Smears BRAD BLOG Coverage of Voting Machine Concerns as ‘Conspiracy Theory’
Dem-advocacy blog refuses to correct inaccurate attack on us, Truthout, Forbes magazine, and even former Dem Sec. of State…

To be frank, while it’s no secret that the Center for American Progress has always been an outside extension of the Democratic Party, their important blog site, Think Progress, has served as a crucial, and journalistically sound fact-checker on the excesses, inaccuracies and blatant fabrications of the Right over the past several years.
I have been more than happy to cite their excellent work on a number of fronts over the years and take no pleasure in calling them, their new Senior Editor Judd Legum, and one of their writers, Aviva Shen, out here onThe BRAD BLOG for an egregiousand, frankly, outrageous journalistic failure.
It is one thing to make an error. We all do it. It is quite another thing indeed — and what, in my opinion, separates real journalists from hacks — when, once called out with independently fact-based and verifiable evidence of those errors, one sticks to the original error come what may.
