The system of government with which this nation has been blessed for over two hundred years is utterly dependent on elections being free, fair, and untouched by corruption. Well, the elections won't be perfect, but any irregularities must be so minimal that they don't change the result.
The candidates can get nasty, lie, prevaricate, and make absurd promises they never intend to keep and we can still have a fair election, especially if the electorate is informed and is willing to make the effort to examine the candidates' claims and proposals. But if the process of counting the votes is corrupt or if there are “phantom” voters who don't even exist casting ballots, then the integrity of the election is destroyed and the candidates elected lack legitimacy. Our republic doesn't work under such corruption of the voting process.
Hence, it is very disconcerting to learn the following:
What appears to be test pages for graphics clientele for news stations across the country could in fact turn out to be another Dewey wins moment or more recently, akin to the BBC reporting the collapse of building 7 on 911… before it happened.
NBC affiliate WRCB TV in Chattanooga, Tennessee has inadvertently posted election night results. The results page appears to be similar to what mainstream news networks display on election night, including Presidential and Congressional results, the popular vote count, electoral votes, and percentage of precincts reporting.
As Jim Stone notes, the page was pulled directly from the WorldNow.com content management platform utilized by major networks like NBC, CBS, ABC and Fox and appears to be a non-public staging area for news and election results. The original page has since been reset.
None of this creates confidence in the integrity of the vote counts to be reported on November 8th. Unfortunately, we should probably prepare for a long night and unprecedented controversy.
