Media Update

Media Matters notices how the media mostly ignored the Berkeley study:

A Nexis search revealed that the Berkeley study has not been covered on any of the cable or broadcast news networks and has received little attention in the print media.

Keith Olbermann, host of MSNBC's Countdown with Keith Olbermann, discussed the Berkeley study and the November 19 Oakland Tribune article in a November 21 entry on his MSNBC.com weblog. Olbermann has received criticism from conservatives in the media for his coverage of reports of election irregularities and the lack of media attention being paid to them, as MMFA has noted.

Speaking of Olbermann, on Tuesday's show he did more on the election (of course). He talked to pollster John Zogby, who said the twenty percent of us who question the 2004 election are not crazy, and that there are a lot of issues to be addressed.

And, on CNN, Aaron Brown covered the irregularities in about as briefly as one could and still have a TV news segment.
