Just a Note… Day Two of the Media Blackout on the Election Results

And by “media”, I mean Times Standard.

However… The Model Railroad did expand it’s empire.  Hooray!  Want more?  Checkout the TS above the fold for the news. (sarcasm)

The best I have found is reporting from the Lost Coast Outpost which promised to “eat it’s hat” (yes they did) if the Elections Office final report changed.  (also this only race-by-race summary that I have found was headed by a picture of chimps replacing the MP’s in the UK’s House of Commons – classy).

If I’ve missed any decent reporting on the election, please let me know – I would like to acknowledge those who do it right.

Here is a cursory blog post in the NCJ who seem to nonchalantly declare Lisa as a winner (which would actually be big news – at least as big as our counties model railroad expansion)  (sorry, sarcasm again)

Also a cursory article by staff in the Mad River Union which focuses frustratingly on the Dan Johnson affair.  Nothing else of import of course. (sarcasm)

    1. great. why didn’t they care? Is it possible they didn’t care because they are told not to care implicitly by not covering the election? Then on top of that they get a scolding for not voting on election day. Then on top of that the results of the most hotly contested race are not even reported? Not that I can find. And we are left to accept that the results will be certified a month later. Shouldn’t there be some effort to attempt to call a winner or report how and why the counts take so long?
      People don’t care because they are told they don’t care – and shouldn’t care. And/or they don’t care because they don’t have time. And/or they don’t care because they are told they are turned off by all the partisanship (conveniently after listening to national talkers marginalize progressives and Democrats).

      “Voter’s didn’t care” is the wrong answer.

      But thanks for the comment Richard. I’ll go check out your post now.

      BTW, I just got some interesting copies from the election office – more on that in days to come.
