DRUDGE gets it wrong again.
By Brad Friedman on 11/1/2004 10:28pm PT  

Wondering what happened to that bogus little Schwarzkopf story that headlined Drudge all day today? The one claiming that the DNC was sending out faked auto-phonecalls to voters in swing states supposedly from the General endorsing Kerry? That story that all the wingnuts were going on and on about all day?

Turns out it wasn't the DNC who created the fake. Surprised? I didn't think so. Atrios has all the goods.

And no, Drudge's incorrect story does not appear in his archives. When he gets it wrong --- as he frequently does --- the evidence disappears along with the truth.

UPDATE: Something odd going on with Atrios' links. If the one above doesn't work, go to Atrios' main page and scroll down to the "Funny Monkeys" story that I was trying to link to originally here.

UPDATE: Another Drudge story, appearing today and still there, about problems with E-machines in Philly, is also wrong. Beware the Rightwing Blogs/Websites/Radio Shows today! They are inventing the case they intend to make tonight in the event that it's close. Which it won't be.

Our long national nightmare may soon be over.
By Brad Friedman on 11/1/2004 9:53pm PT  

Over the course of at least the last six months, we believe we have laid out the irrefutably damning case against George W. Bush on this blog and have demonstrated honest and specific evidence for that case in these pages.

His historically unprecedented failures and deficiencies as both "President" and "Commander-in-Chief" of this country have been well documented here and elsewhere for anyone who has been willing and able to look beyond their own partisan biases at the stark and plain truth of those failures.

To that end, the BRAD BLOG strongly anti-endorses George W. Bush for President.

We believe that Mr. Bush deserves a swift and decisive removal from office and every American should do anything within their power to help achieve that aim and --- in doing so --- see to it that our long national nightmare may finally be over.

If you happen to vote in a state where you feel the results of the election may be close in any way, shape or form, we recommend you support your country and the world you live in by voting proudly for John Kerry.

If you happen to vote in a "red" state, we also recommend that you support your country and the world you live in by voting for John Kerry as I believe that if you do, Mr. Bush may well receive a few surprises on Election Day. Some previously "red" states may well magically find themselves turning "blue". As well, since it's important that a Kerry victory be decisive if there is to be even a remote chance of healing the partisan hell we've been through for at least four years, a decisive popular majority for Kerry is essential.

Finally, if you live in a solid "blue" state, like myself, then I'd suggest you do as I plan to: Vote your conscience.

There are some very serious problems in our country and world right now, and almost all of them are directly tied to the failings and collusions of our corrupt monolithic two-party system.

I look forward with great anticipation to a Kerry victory so that honest, informed Americans, who have witnessed what has happened to our country over the last 20 years, may soon stand some hope of beginning to correct the dangerous governmental/corporate corrosive course that is tearing our society and civilization apart at it's very core. Unfortunately, the fissures in that core now run directly and painfully through your house, your pocket book, and your true and honest American values.

That long course will be a difficult one even with John Kerry in office. It will be nothing short of impossible, however, with George W. Bush --- a man with neither understanding nor sympathy for anything resembling true, core, American values --- occupying his destructive helm for another four years.

To that end, I encourage you, dear BRAD BLOG readers, to do what you must on Election Day to help change the course of history and our beloved country by removing George W. Bush --- once and for all --- from the office he never should have occupied in the first place.

Quoting again from a great American: You have the power! You have the power! You have the power!

Now get out and use that power to vote and to get out the vote and, in doing so, help save your world.

'Hannity & Colmes' Much Closer to Fair and Balanced Tonight!
By Brad Friedman on 11/1/2004 7:47pm PT  

Well, your email paid off! As much, perhaps, as we could hope given that we're dealing with the Republican behemoth that is the Fox "News" Channel. So all in all, a job well done, guys! It pays to make noise and fight for your Democracy.

As originally reported here, the Hannity & Colmes show had announced on Friday that tonight's guests would be:

ON THE RIGHT: Karl Rove, Dick Morris, William Weld
ON THE LEFT: Bill Richardson

By the time tonight's show aired, Morris and Weld on the Right were dumped, and Terry McAuliffe added on the Left. Unfortunately, Jeb Bush (obviously on the Right) was added as well. Yet, on it's face, it appeared to be more "Fair and Balanced" as such:

ON THE RIGHT: Karl Rove, Jeb Bush
ON THE LEFT: Bill Richardson, Terry McAuliffe

Well, that looks more "Fair & Balanced", doesn't it? But here was the actual show breakdown (Right leaning segments bold)

SEGMENT 1: Jeb Bush
SEGMENT 2: Jeb Bush
SEGMENT 3: Bill Richardson
SEGMENT 4: Karl Rove
(Seg 4 Rove interview by Hannity only! Colmes not allowed!)

SEGMENT 5: Terry McAuliffe

Final tally was 3 segments with the Right (one that Hannity had all to himself) and only 2 segments with the Left.

As I've mentioned in the past, my source inside H&C tells me that they have a very difficult time getting the DNC and Kerry campaign to cooperate and give them guests for the show. The theory --- a mostly plausible one --- is that Fox is so far to the Right, the Dems feel they won't get a fair shake when they go on.

I share my sources belief, however, that it's foolish for the Dems to simply write off Fox "News" in the bargain.

Yes, of course they won't get a fair shake on Fox, but it's better to show up and represent as best they can than to allow Fox to overweight with Republicans, or worse, stick someone like Pat Cadell on there and call him a "Democratic Consultant" when he hasn't worked or supported any Democrats since, I believe, Jimmy Carter! Or have Susan Estrich on there --- who worked for Arnold Schwarzenegger! --- and call her a "Democratic Consultant".

Like it or not, more Americans watch Fox these days for political news than anybody else --- and it's not all hard right wingnuts. There are a lot of reasonable, normal, Left-leaning Americans that watch FNC as well! I'm certainly one of them! Frankly because it's not quite as dull as it's competition (who are only slightly less slanted to the Right these days). So it's imperative that Dems show up and at least fight on that turf to try anyway to partially balance Fox's constant imbalance.

If I hear from my source any plausible explanation as to why H&C still managed to skew things to the Right tonight, on Election Eve of all nights --- even though they had a seemingly even number of Democrats to interview --- I'll update this item.

Other than that, I'm without ammunition to defend it. So instead, I'll just leave you with this exchange from the end of the segment tonight with McAuliffe:

MCAULIFFE: Fair and balanced, baby!
HANNITY: Well, we let you on...that's about as fair and balanced as we can get.

I guess it is.

Using Osama bin Laden to Support George W. Bush!
By Brad Friedman on 11/1/2004 5:14pm PT  

Last night, wingnut blog "Little Green Footballs" posted about the "missing 12 minutes" from the Osama bin Laden tapes and quoted from a NY Post story about it. Here's some of what they quoted as being in the "missing 12 minutes":

bin Laden bemoans the recent democratic elections in Afghanistan and the lack of violence involved with it.

On the tape, bin Laden also says his terror organization has been hurt by the U.S. military's unrelenting manhunt for him and his cohorts on the Afghan-Pakistani border.

Unfortunately for them (and frankly for everyone in America) the full transcript of the tape has now been posted by Al Jazeera. It says nothing of the kind.

Still, if these guys can make the argument that "bin Laden endorses Kerry!" they'll be happy to use this terrorist to support their own desperate campaign to pull victory from the jaws of imminent defeat.

Many of the Rightwing blogs have been posting the same, and of course, not bothering to update their posts with the corrected info --- showing that they were wrong --- once the full transcript came out.

These online polls are read on the air! Their emotional effect on the electorate is NOT TO BE DISCOUNTED! Balance the lack of balance in their viewership/listenership by voting NOW!

Hannity's poll (bottom left on page):
Who do you think Bin Laden was endorsing in his recent tape?
BUSH or Kerry?

O'Reilly's poll:
Who do you think will win the election?
Bush or KERRY?

UPDATE: This MSNBC Poll also needs help!

It's now all in the PsyOps folks! As I'm sure Karl Rove would be happy to tell you!

Bush Camp Continues to Arrest Those Who Support Kerry
By Brad Friedman on 11/1/2004 12:05pm PT  

ABC producers tested the T-shirt experiment of wearing Kerry shirts to a Bush event, and Bush shirts to a Kerry event. At the Bush events they were either not allowed in or tossed out. The worst treatment received at the Kerry event was folks who danced around them with big signs in order to obstruct the view of the Bush shirts by TV cameras. (emphasis mine)

A second team of ABC News producers waited until entering Space Coast stadium before showing its Kerry-Edwards T-shirts, but was still quickly spotted and ordered out by Borman, who identified himself as working for the Republican National Committee.

He said the rally of some 18,000 people was a "private event," and it made no difference that producers Christine Romo and Jessica Wang had tickets and remained silent and respectful.

"But you wore the shirts; you wore the shirts," Borman said. "And honestly, if you would have come without the shirts and sat quietly, you would have had a fun time and enjoyed it, but I mean it's not that kind of event." He then instructed the sheriff's deputies to escort the ABC News team out to the parking lot.

This was hardly the first time those wearing dissenting T-shirts have been forced to leave a Bush campaign event.

Jeff Rank and his wife, Nicole, were arrested July 4 at a Bush rally in Charleston, W.Va., for wearing shirts that read "Love America, Hate Bush" and refusing to relocate to an area for protesters. Earlier this month, at a Bush event in Cedar Point, Ore., Janet Voorhies and two friends were ejected for wearing T-shirts with "Protect Our Civil Liberties" printed on them.

"I think this represents a low point in public discourse in this country, where the mere sign of disagreement is intolerable to candidates," Post said. "That can't be right. That can't be American."

A Kerry staffer at an Oct. 24 Kerry rally in Boca Raton, Fla., told Bush-Cheney T-shirt wearers that the campaign held a permit to rent the site and could remove anyone who made a disturbance.

"We hold the right to remove you, but other than that, enjoy and hopefully at the end of the event you'll want to wear a Kerry T-shirt," he said.

Website suggestion to shoot Democrat leaders!
By Brad Friedman on 11/1/2004 11:05am PT  

Josh Marshall reports on a group calling themselves the "Florida Leadership Council" circulating a flyer now down there. Here's the actual flyer. Here's Josh's summary:

The headline reads: "First Day of School: Eighth Grade South Florida Middle School, 2007"

Under that is a class of school children wearing gas masks and beneath that is the following faux-AP story ...

(AP) Florida Red Zone --- August 14th, 2007 --- President Kerry warned parents and children in South Florida that mandatory radiation and chemical gear would be required to be worn "for the forseeable future" since the Suitcase Dirty Bomb terrorist attack on South Florida in the spring. The first day of school was chaotic, as teachers and school officials attempted to bring some ...

Perhaps even more troubling, however, is that when clicking on the link to the "Florida Leadership Council" there are continuing gunshots heard when looking at the front page. Three rifle shots, every 10 seconds or so.

It seems to be tied to an ad against U.S. Senate candidate Betty Castor (who is in a tight race down there), which is right next to pictures of Democrat/Liberal figureheads with the text "It's time to fight back - before it's too late."

Kos documents nearly a dozen late on-going voter suppression schemes now in play. Old tactics back in the game. Apparently, big time.

That looks to be the strategy from here on out. Suppression. Along with their already telegraphed tactic of continually suggesting that Democrats are doing precisely what it is the GOP intends to do.

By any means necessary. Anything to win.

UPDATE: Here's a perfect example of charging Dems with precisely what the GOP is doing!

...And other late polling news.
By Brad Friedman on 10/31/2004 4:01pm PT  

The unpolled get polled:

Polling firm Zogby International and partner Rock the Vote found Massachusetts Senator John Kerry leading President Bush 55% to 40% among 18-29 year-old likely voters in their first joint Rock the Vote Mobile political poll, conducted exclusively on mobile phones October 27 through 30, 2004. Independent Ralph Nader received 1.6%, while 4% remain undecided in the survey of 6,039 likely voters.
...
The poll also found that only 2.3% of 18-29 year-old respondents said they did not plan to vote, and another .5% who were not sure if they would.

Those numbers can make all the difference in the polls you've been seeing up until now.

Related News...AMERICABlog reports this just in:

This is it guys, NBC/Wall Street Journal's LAST poll before the election:

Bush 48%, Kerry 47%, with Nader at 1%.

By way of comparison, in 2000, they had the following results in their last poll:

Bush 47%, Gore 44%, Nader 3% and Buchanan 2%

Again folks, Bush is still below 50%, and well within the margin of error. It's all a ground game and Get-Out-The-Vote. KEEP WORKING!

If you haven't seen my item from yesterday on this, please read it!

My very highly placed source indicates that your letters are helping to encourage Fox to offer more balance on H&C's Monday night (Election Eve) show!

If you haven't already sent a polite note expressing your concern about "Fair and Balance" on their show Monday night, please colmes@foxnews.com, Comments@foxnews.com, mm-tips@mediamatters.org, mm-actions@mediamatters.org, click">TheBradBlog@cville.com\">click here to do so now!

We've received many comments from Rightwingers expressing that they are quite pleased with their guest line-up, thank you, as it was announced on Friday.

We've also received many from Liberals suggesting that since Fox is so far to the Right, what's the point in trying to get them to level their playing field at all?

I will remind you that, no matter what you may feel about Fox "News", more Americans watch them now for Election "News" than any other news outlet! Those are not all Republican zombies! But many of those viewers are highly influenced by the hard-right slant that FNC offers in every facet of their broadcast day. With a race (possibly) this close, levelling the playing field in any way on FNC can only be a plus!

CNN and MSNBC, unfortunately leaning to the Right as well these days, do not offer balance to FNC!

You Democrats, Liberals and Progressives who are foolish enough to simply write-off Fox "News" as a lost and/or useless cause are doing an enormous disservice to yourself and your cause and are behaving precisely as Bush supporters would like you to!
