Cincinnati ‘TV Anchor Dream Team’ Contest Takes a Mulligan

The Cincinnati Enquirer has decided to re-do the round of voting for the “TV Anchor Dream Team” contest pairings that were hacked, this time with security measures in place to ensure the purity of the vote.

One pairing drew more than 105,000 votes in a little more than ten hour period.
