Mark Crispin Miller's "None Dare Call It Stolen"

"None Dare Call It Stolen: Ohio, the Election, and America's Servile Press" (Harper's magazine, August 2005) is an ass kicking piece of journalism. MCM has always been one of my favorites -- I'm very happy a mainstream mag is tackling this story.

One excerpt:

In the summer of 2003, Representative Peter King (Rl, N.Y.) was interviewed by Alexandra Pelosi at a barbecue on the White House lawn for her HBO documentary "Diary of a Political Tourist." "It's all over. The election's over. We won." King exulted more than a year before the election. When asked by Pelosi -- the daughter of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi -- how he knew that Bush would win, he answered: "It's all over but the counting. And we'll take care of the counting."
