Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It is funny, the election was not really talked about until it was the week of the election. I think BushCo thought it would go smoothly, in other words, without media coverage like Peru's and Columbia's election, where BushCo got the people they wanted and the media hardly covered their election.

I think that will be the next diary, a comparison of how those elections with this one. They had exactly the same results in Mexico. AMLO projected to win and in the end and a surprise, lost.

The similarities between Mexico and Columbia/Peru's election

  1. Urbi and García were not projected be their countries President and they are;
  2. Both countries had a lot of irregularities in their election;
  3. Both countries had very minimal coverage in the our MSM.

The only difference now between Mexico and Columbia/Peru, is the post-election coverage.

What if there was full coverage of the election and the post-election here in US, would projected to winner before the election be President now? That is an answer we never will know.

AMLO and the Yellow Revolution, I like it.

If we are suppose to be the new media then we shall adopt it, therefore, we should try really hard to mention it as often as we can, "AMLO and the Yellow Revolution."

Corruption and hypocrisy ought not to be inevitable products of democracy, as they undoubtedly are today. - Gandhi
