America’s Media Just Made Vote-Rigging Easier

The news that America’s mainstream media has cancelled exit polling in 19 states, means that insider election theft this November is now even harder to track, and therefore easier to get away with – something that scarcely seemed possible.
As I’ve written in the November issue of Harper’s Magazine (“How to Rig an Election”), our voting system is already privatized, corporatized, computerized and arguably less secure than Vegas slot machines. It’s also controlled by a shadowy cartel of right-wing affiliated companies that keep merging and changing their names, perhaps – and almost certainly in the case of Diebold – to avoid association with the record of white-collar criminal charges and convictions that trail them from state to state.

Message from Mark: "I am a one-man operation, although assisted greatly by some volunteers, and, now and then, by people paid by others for one-time projects. There is no shortage of skilled, dedicated folks out there who want to help me. There is, however, nothing I can pay them with, unless you decide you can contribute something."
