The American Antitrust Institute is again calling for a breakup of the big-media joint venture that puts
all exit polling eggs in one basket. Renamed Voter News Service Risks Another Failure (Oct. 29, 2004)
“[O]n two previous occasions all the major media combined their exit polling operations
into one organization that had spectacular failures. Now they are doing it again, except that they have re-
named their joint operation the “National Election Pool.” The American Antitrust Institute reiterates
its call for competition in the exit polling market, and again urges the antirust enforcers to investigate
whether the cooperating media organizations are violating the antitrust laws.”

- postscript (8 P.M.) Have you noticed that the Fool has not made it to his Forest much lately? It seems that “Real Life” has been keeping George Wallace from his fun/artsy Fool weblog, and from the insurance-oriented Declarations & Exclusions. Despite having clients to serve, George managed to find time to be interviewed by Insurance Journal, [Blogging the Insurance Law, Oct. 26, 2004] and the audio of the interview can be found here. George blows his own horn, here.
George “tells IJ why he started the blog, who reads it, and why his may just be the beginning of a trend in online insurance communication.” It’s an interesting conversation with a dulcet-toned, sagacious “fool.” One complaint: George keeps saying “blogs”, despite having eschewed the term for aesthetic purposes in cyberspace. He also calls Walter Olson a lawyer, but probably won’t have to fear a defamation suit from the litigatiphobic Olson.
