Why is Fox News the only website covering the felony election fraud charges against 4 DEMOCRATIC officials?

"Felony charges related to election fraud have touched the 2008 race for the highest office in the land.

Prosecutors in South Bend, Ind., filed charges Monday against four St. Joseph County Democratic officials and deputies as part of a multiple-felony case involving the alleged forging of Democratic presidential primary petitions in the 2008 election, which put then-candidates Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton on the Indiana ballot.

The officials are accused of taking part in a scheme to fake signatures and names on the primary petitions needed to run for president. Court papers say the plan was hatched by local Democratic Party officials inside the local party headquarters."

Not on CNN.... Not on MSNC..

I guess it's because Fox News is racist, prejudiced, lying, etc.....

And these are the same fools yelling and screaming about how unfair and racist asking for ID to vote is...

Here's your link.... choke on it....

Update 2:

@scott b

They have been charged with FELONIES, how factual does it have to be?

Update 4:

@ Smoking Joe - Wrong election fraud - put down the joint and read the damn story. Plus Acorn Officials WERE charged!

And to all saying this situation has nothing to do with Voter IDs.

I'm pointing out the irony of how Democratic Officials are first in line to complain about how "unfair" it is require ID, but then lose their voice when their own people get caught committing election fraud.

@ Sam - WOW! a couple local affiliates have the story! WooHoo! I'm talking MAJOR New Sites like CNN or MSNBC..

    Explain in detail how requiring voters to have IDs would affect the ability of a campaign worker to forge signatures on a petition to include a candidate on a ballot.

    Here is the link: http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2012/04/02/4-india...

    But here is something even more disturbing. If you go to Bing or Google (both left leaning search engines) and type in "Indian Democrat election fraud" you will not receive any results relating to the story, Anywhere!!!!! Even the Fox News story is absent on the first pages. Yahoo does report story in a number of sites. Go Yahoo. at least your are honest.

    1. Other people are carrying the story.

    2. It isn't voter fraud. It was fraud in signing the petition to get candidates on the ballot for the primary. It doesn't affect the actual election.

    3. No voter ID law would stop it.

    Because Fox news ONLY reports things that make Democrats look bad. Did you know that Scott Walker team is being investigated for fraud? Did you know that the Heritage Foundation endorsed mandatory health insurance and almost every Republican before Obama was in office? Did you know that Paul Ryan bill decreases education and police but increases military spending? Should I go on about how Fox news do not cover Republican scandals?

    No, if not for the illegals, dead people and poor ignorant (give me) fools, the dems would have a hard time getting elected. That's the main reason they are so against voter I.D.

    Here it is on ABC:

    http://www.abc57.com/news/local/Four-people-charge...

    Isn't ABC supposed to be the "liberal media," too?

    And look, here it is on an affiliate of the "liberal" NBC:

    http://www.wndu.com/hometop/headlines/145824015.ht...

    The fact is that the news is not required to report only the stories you want reported.

    And in case you didn't notice, this fraud was about PETITIONS to put names on the ballot for the Democratic primary. Your voter ID laws would have made no difference whatever to the possibility of this fraud.

    Geez, sometimes you people don't even read.

    All ACORN charges were thrown out, because all they could every showed was that some lazy workers filled in some forms to get paid.

    This is old news - stop trying to pretend this went anywhere, or that charges were filed anywhere but in Republican towns trying to influence elections.

    Go ahead and defend the voter ID lays by proving nothing.

    fox is the only news station that isn't firmly leaning to the left

    I don't know...if you're post an actual LINK so we could read the entire story, and not just your sound-bite cut/paste, then maybe we could answer that.

    Though, of course, the most obvious reason would be....because it's unsubstantiated, baseless, and probably not true, and all of the OTHER stations have high enough integrity not to run the story until it becomes factual.
