How The Dinosaur Media is Covering Up The ACORN Voter Fraud Story

With Barack Obama's pals at ACORN getting busted across the country for fraudulent registrations, the dino media can't exactly ignore the story..but as Terry Trippany at Newsbusters reveals in his piece showing that ABC News Used Obama Contributor as ‘Expert’ in Defense of ACORN, how they cover it is something else:

"Justin Rood of ABC news came out with a tortured defense of ACORN today with the help of “experts” that claim there is no connection between invalid voter registrations and voter fraud. In order for Rood to make this claim he relies on the testimony of two “experts”, namely Civil Rights attorney David Becker and Lorraine Minnite, a political science professor at Barnard College in New York.

A further examination of these two experts however shows that Rood is downright deceitful in presenting this argument. Lorraine Minnite actually
donated $250 to the Obama campaign in March of this year while David Becker is anything but the Republican that he is portrayed as in the article. In fact Mr. Becker is a former director at People for the American Way, a liberal activist group that monitors “right wing organizations” and is currently launching a campaign aimed at Fighting Back Against Right-Wing Smears of ACORN.

Just in case you were unconvinced of the objectivity of Becker’s former group
note that they will be launching a full page ad in the the New York Times in defense of ACORN.

We can hardly call these experts objective yet they are the people that ABC News is relying on to gloss over the multi-state voter fraud activities of a group that is intricately tied to Barack Obama.
