The New York Times, in a story about the California Recall, complained about the “mass disenfranchisement” that the story claimed happens when voters “in the counties stuck with punch cards are far more likely than other Californians to have their ballots thrown out.”

Apparently, the NYT doesn’t read itself, or figures it’s readers don’t.

Oh, yeah. They don’t remember it, apparently, but the Times recently ran a story that statistically showed quite clearly that punch cards have a lower rate of invalid votes than the touch-screen voting systems that the court rules should be in place prior to the vote occurring.

NewsMax suggests that the story showing those facts should be exhibit A in the case for overturning the 9th Circus.

I concur. But more; I say again the problem here is Sulzberger himself.
