The U.S. "news media" has a tough time telling tough truths. And nothing is harder to admit than the fact that the basic mechanics of government have been hijacked to serve the interests of for-profit voting machine companies. Those companies have been contracted exactly because the powers-that-be want to diffuse trust in the system. THEY know that paper machines are more accurate, but THEY don't want The People in charge of their republic.
The evidence is overwhelming, but the media just don't want to talk about it.
