Why?

Why are multiple confirmed instances of voter suppression by Republican sources not getting any main stream media airtime? Instances that have resulted in arrests, mind you.

I guess since ACORN wasn't involved it doesn't matter. It's just Strategic Allied Consulting, an organization that was paid by the GOP to canvass and register voters.

Once you start reading the news agencies of other countries, it becomes painfully obvious that media in this one is not reporting many, many things we should hear about.

I really don't watch any "mainstream media", so I honestly don't know how much coverage ACORN got to compare. (Fox News does not count as "mainstream media".)

I know the Strategic Allied Consulting deal got plenty of coverage from online media sources that focus on politics. *shrug*

The reason I consider Fox News not as "mainstream media" is that they are a political allegiance source vs. a news reporting agency. Discounting the obvious political slant, their absolute coverage of anything in the world is absolutely abysmal... other than the politics, they tend to focus on sensational stories or pure fluff entertainment. They are as "media" as TMZ in my mind.

None of the three are really that great, but at least on the other two you will hear actual stories of news worthiness.

Maybe the stateside MSM have been patiently stockpiling those reports for an October Surprise release this Tuesday or next. Exposing them all in a single flood, rather than in a series of seemingly isolated drips, more effectively drives home the point of a coordinated nationwide assault on the vote by the GOP. Rest assured, the media will not let this slide.
