<p>On Friday&rsquo;s NBC <em>Today</em>, correspondent Stephanie Gosk devoted a full report to hyping concerns that Russia could somehow rig the U.S. presidential election in November. In the wake of the hacking of Democratic National Committee e-mails, Gosk warned viewers: <strong>&ldquo;The incident is raising new questions about the security of our country&#39;s overall electoral system. Could voting booths or voting tallies themselves be vulnerable?&rdquo;</strong></p>

<p>With the sensational headline <strong>&ldquo;Could Russia Hack Our Election?&rdquo;</strong> blaring across the screen, the reporter declared: &ldquo;The e-mail scandal upended the Democratic Party....But beyond the political damage...there is another concern. <strong>Is the U.S. doing enough to protect the country&#39;s electoral system in general? If Russian intelligence is trying to tip the scales of this election, where else might they look?&rdquo;</strong></p>
