“HBO’s controversial special ‘Hacking Democracy’ on issues with  
Diebold voting machines is now available in full on Google Video.”
Covered earlier on Slashdot, the documentary seems to have gathered  
quite a bit of heat from Diebold in addition to the one that didn’t air.

“According to the Bloomberg News, Diebold Inc. is insisting that HBO  
cancel a documentary that questions the integrity of its voting  
machines, calling the program inaccurate and unfair. The program,  
‘Hacking Democracy,’ is scheduled to debut Thursday, five days before  
the 2006 U.S. midterm elections. The film claims that Diebold voting  
machines aren’t tamper-proof and can be manipulated to change voting  
results. ‘Hacking Democracy’ is ‘replete with material examples of  
inaccurate reporting,’ says Diebold. ‘We stand by the film,” said a  
spokesman for HBO. ‘We have no intention of withdrawing it from our  
schedule. It appears that the film Diebold is responding to is not  
the film HBO is airing.'”
