Guardian Ends Election Interference
The Guardian (UK) has halted
its "Operation Clark County," in which British readers were encouraged to write to the voters of Clark County, Ohio and attempt to persuade them to vote for John Kerry after being matched with addresses from the county voter roll. The stunt actually yielded the opposite effect, inspiring more voters to volunteer for the Bush campaign and embarrassing county Democrats. Apparently the paper also didn't pay for its copy of the voter roll.
