PBS, HDNet present the case for election reform

Tuesday, August 14th, 2007

The case for election reform is making its way onto the airwaves of two major television networks this summer. Tonight at 8pm eastern time HDNet premieres Dan Rather’s hour-long report called “The Trouble with Touch Screens.” There is a sneek preview of Rather’s report on HDNet’s website. At Why Tuesday? we’re working furiously to schedule a time to talk to Rather about his piece. Stay tuned.

Meanwhile, over on PBS David Iglesias, one of the U.S. Attorneys fired amid controversy in 2006, raised the possibility that partisan politics were involved in “voter caging” – the process of systematically purging large numbers of voters from the rolls by using “junk mail” – before the 2004 elections. The episode of NOW aired July 27th and is available online.
