“Save the pretty white woman!”

Posted by Jack Stephens on August 4, 2007

Ann blogs on the media’s disproportionate coverage of pretty white women who have gone missing:

(MWWS), also known as missing pretty girl syndrome, is a term used to describe disproportionate media coverage of white female victims. The individual may be missing, murdered, captured, or even have faked her own abduction; the essential element of the syndrome is that her gender, race, prettiness, age, or social background is to have extended the media coverage and public interest in her case. And many people who want to face reality know that black women, and other women of color, do not rate the respect to receive the PMWWS treatment.

Destruction of Ohio’s Vote Records

Posted by Jack Stephens on August 4, 2007

The Angry Indian posts on Stephanie’s Journal:

The lost records violate Ohio law, which states federal election records must be kept for 22 months after Election Day, and a U.S. District Court order issued last September that the 2004 ballots be preserved while the court hears a civil rights lawsuit alleging voter suppression of African-American voters in Columbus.

The destruction of the election records also frustrates efforts by the media and historians to determine the accuracy of Ohio’s 2004 vote count, because in county after county the key evidence needed to understand vote count anomalies apparently no longer exists.
