In a rather amazing display of faulty Journalism, Fox News, reported today several polls which featured extrapolated results that are more than just questionable, they could well be completely wrong in every way.
Is it wrong to show a Poll when only a very very small percentage of voters may have been reached?
Yes, it is, you bet your beef cakes it is.
To be fair, they did not state complete facts about the polls, only a very small portion but read on if you want to hear more about how the news cycle is becoming very unbalanced.
Finding out what people feel and think is a difficult thing and for the most part its a hit and miss proposition, take for example the idea that the use of language in the design of the question can create a misleading result.
Do you think that the United States is doing the right thing for the American People?
The obvious answer is no, so you go out and you find a few hundred people who answer their phones and you ask them the question.
Your going to get what you asked for in that instance.
So, when you see the media playing games with polls what does it really mean?
Donald Trump may be the front runner currently in some polls and this is more than likely a result of the media working to discredit him at every possible moment including late night entertainment shows which basically are just another distorted view of how the media really thinks.
On Conan oBrian apparently he and or the producers of that program think that making fun of Trump will keep him out of the race.
What appears to be happening is just the opposite.
