|Part I of this two-part report...Somewhat belatedly, eight major news organizations paid the University of Chicago's National Opinion Research Center (NORC) almost $900,000 to do a recount of the disputed ballots in Florida. NORC concluded that Gore won the most votes throughout the state, no matter what tabulating method was used. After sitting on the report for nine months, the mainstream media released the results with misleading headlines ("Supreme Court Did Not Decide Outcome") and buried NORC's astounding conclusion on the inside pages almost as an afterthought.
A must-read, good background for how the heck we got into the mess we're in now.
