The Pointlessness of Election Result Bans

Inequality of information is something the Red Nine are just going to have to live with. We already knew that any motivated British Columbian who wants the Nova Scotia election results before the polls close in the west will be able to get them. But I thought that at least Big Media would be temporarily silenced.

But even that seems unlikely. Le Monde has engaged in the device of "reporting the controversy" by linking to the bloggers who will defy France's law by releasing the results of the first round of the presidential election. Expect Canadian imitators.
