    Why is it that EVER time they make a mistake....it FAVORS the GOP



    The problem with the poll that Fox cited is that it doesn’t say anything like what they claim it does. In fact, it appears that they actually switched the numbers around.


    The poll in question does find that 56 percent of respondents do not want to see the GOP compromise, but the question was directed to self-identified Republicans — meaning that Fox essentially took the number for Republicans and claimed that it represented all Americans:

    Somebody at Fox either has absolutely no clue about statistics or has no morals.

    Or their view of "Americans" is Republicans only.

    Once is a mistake. Twice your fire someone. 10+ times that I can think of is a purposeful editorial decision.

    q1w2e3 saidSomebody at Fox either has absolutely no clue about statistics or has no morals.

    Being clueless about statistics would cause some random results to favor the Left, and some the Right. The FOX errors ALWAYS favor the Right, suggesting they are not errors at all, which they don't admit until someone calls them on it.

    And by then the bad information is already out there, being disseminated in a hundred other venues. A later retraction or correction never has as much exposure or acceptance as the original misinformation. A clever & effective tactic, yes? And they do it again, and again, and again...

    But remember, they're Fair & Balanced, right? Because, after all, they say so themselves. icon_rolleyes.gif

    Fox is the on-air mouthpiece for the Republican propaganda machine.
    They're not a credible "fair and balanced" newschannel.

    Everybody know that.
