HACKERY

-- This is just your common tale of congressman posts online poll about an Iraq withdrawl, Freeper hijacks poll with a computer program, poll skews artificially against congressman, World Net Daily writes about poll results, e-mailer tells WND's Joseph Farah about the Freeper bot, Farah sees no problem. Details here.

-- But for the real choice hackery, where else but Fox?
FOX News is refusing to air an ad critical of Supreme Court nominee Samuel Alito, citing its lawyers' contention that the spot is factually incorrect.
I'm curious what the 2004 Kerry campaign staff would think if they heard about this new "factually correct" standard of Fox's. And I find it somewhat hard to believe that Fox -- a network employing Bill O'Reilly, Sean Hannity and Brit Hume -- has suddenly become a stickler for the truth.
