Kucinich's Anti-War Platform Resonates With Public, Outrages ABC

As the mainstream Democratic candidates continue to alienate the party's base with ambiguous, insincere promises to reverse US foreign policy of perpetual aggression and dominance, Dennis Kucinich's message of diplomacy and nonviolence has catapulted him to the forefront of the race. Though corporate media would have us believe the public support of Kucinich is insignificant enough to write off his candidacy, he easily trounced the competition and came out as the leader of ABC's online post-debate poll.

Despite this shocking turn of events, ABC chose not to report the victory. Instead, the online poll was deleted, and replaced by a new poll, which Kucinich also handily won. ABC's response was to then remove the online poll entirely. In addition, Kucinich was cropped out of ABC's group photo of the candidates and virtually ignored in post debate reports. Apparently, like Ron Paul, Dennis Kucinich is being deliberately marginalized by the mainstream media. This video sums up ABC's obvious attemt to distort the debate results:

The good news is that ABC's politics page, where the online poll and debate coverage used to be, has been swamped with comments by outraged viewers: http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/Decision2008/story?id=3478895
