The latest iteration of the Great Chad Count of 2001 has been announced. Some news organizations finally announce specifics about their planned gang-recount. They'll pay a nonprofit firm to "inventory" the votes, but each news organization will decide separately what the results mean. And one paper is holding an entirely separate count of its own. Inside.com summarizes: "When the laborious process is completed in 8 to 10 weeks, look for an orgy of tea-leaf discernment as any news organization willing to share in the costs will be free to spin and analyze the results in any way they please."

So what happens when the WSJ or the NYT say Gore won by x number of votes?

Does x have to be a few thousand before people take it seriously?

Will the analysis be straight down party lines (exactly what the media accused the Supreme Court of doing)?

Apparently, the NORC will be releasing the database a few days after the newspapers spin the results . . . so we'll be able to view the results and give them a good old MeFi spin ourselves!
