Idol Con Game

We told you so. This, from the New York Times, is just for openers:
The show’s host, Ryan Seacrest, it was noted, mentioned multiple times during the finale that nearly 100 million votes were cast, but he gave no hint about the margin separating the two finalists. Last year he clearly stated that the winner, David Cook, received 56 percent of the 97.5 million votes cast, a 12 million-vote margin of victory. And earlier this season Mr. Seacrest gave details about the vote margin between the bottom two contestants.
It's not the 38 million Arkansas votes, or however many they really were. It's the continuing absence of any comparative vote totals.
