Daily Media Briefing � Media Briefing for Thursday, November 1, 2007: "A staffer for the Mayor of Pittsburgh rigged his personal computer to vote repeatedly in favor of the mayor in a CBS talk radio station KDKA-AM 1020 online poll, but a spokesperson for Mayor Luke Ravenstahl says that the worker will not be punished for the act. KDKA-AM posted a poll on morning host Marty Griffin’s web page last week asking if the media had treated Ravenstahl unfairly in their coverage of recent Pittsburgh City Hall scandals, and the worker in the Mayor’s Computer Information Systems department set up a program to get around the poll’s ban on repeat voting. 86% of votes said the media was too harsh on the mayor. “He could have done the same thing for American Idol, said Alecia Sirk, a spokesperson for the mayor’s office, referring to the computer tech who fixed the poll. “He’s a private person who supports the mayor. He can do what he wants as a private person at home.” This report is from All Access. "
