Cenk tears into “The New York Times” coverage of Eric Holder’s speech about voter fraud, which sets up Democrat and Republican sound bites as if they are equally true. “Classic mainstream media,” Cenk says. “Republicans say this, Democrats say that. Well, that’s really interesting. So which one is it? Well, they don’t tell you that. They don’t give you the numbers. Is fraud running rampant?” In fact, 25 percent of African Americans and 16 percent of Latinos do not have photo identification, because “[Republicans] want to disenfranchise voters who might go to Democrats,” Cenk says. And as for voter fraud, in New York, voter fraud happened .000009 percent of the time.
