You can tell the US elections are near when...

...the first two leading news articles on One News were about issues involved with the US presidential elections. One News has been relentless presenting them as Good News for Kerry, which makes me wonder if the News-reader will burst into tears in case of a Bush Win.

The first news item was about the 380 tons of high grade explosives that are now missing because the Bush Administration was negligent in setting up guards to cover Iraqi arms depot while the second was about Bill Clinton finally campaigning for Kerry. Unfortunately the news item they showed about the missing explosives was the latest word from NBC news. This actually said the explosives were already missing when the American troops got there! The end result was certainly balanced but it also had the effect of making One News look like morons.
