Media Conspire to Suppress Republican Turnout

St. Louis's KSDK.com is doing its fair share to suppress the Republican voter turnout. They're pumping a handful of counted votes to give the impression that Obama is walking away with the national popular vote: Here's the scam. Only 42 votes have been counted in a country of 150 million registered voters. In other words, it's crap. No responsible news organization would post such misleading nonsense--except in hopes of discouraging Romney voters.

Filth.

But that doesn't stop the voter-suppression wizards at KSDK , the AP, and Politico from splattering a meaningless graph across their home pages.

(Note: Politico has since removed the misleading graphic.)

Let KSDK know you don't appreciate voter suppression tactics.

UPDATE: In response to @Michelle_Moore's watchdog journalism, the vote suppressors have update their misleading graphic.

SOTUday Night Fever on KSDK 5

I’ll participate on KSDK Channel 5’s post-SOTU discussion panel Tuesday following the State of the Union speech. (I being Bill Hennessy, in case you’re reading this from a news feed.)

I don’t know who my fellow panelists will be, but I think it’s pretty cool that a local network invited a tea partier to help break down the President’s State of the Union speech.

The speech starts at 8:00 p.m. CT Tuesday, January 25 on  KSDK 5. The analysis follows. 

Please tune in and tell your friends.  (Tweet, Facebook, email a link to this post, using the buttons below.) 

Other ideas to make the evening more meaningful:

* Start an office pool on what I wear

* Do a shot every time Barry says “perfectly clear”

* Draw a picture of Nancy Pelosi when John Boehner announces the President

* Have your kids interrupt with applause every time you say something really, really witty at the TV

* In the comments below, post the snarky answers I should have given instead of the lame, unintelligible responses I actually give

* Add your own ideas below
