Because polling has now become so integrated with marketing and politics, the shysters have entered the field in order to create numbers to their liking. Liberals are famous for this.<quoted text>
Apparently, Public Policy Polling came up with contradictory results asking two separate questions.
Participants were given a list of networks, including Fox News, CNN, MSNBC, and PBS, and voted on whether they trusted each network.
In the first question, Fox News and Comedy Central both received 46% of those networks considered the most untrustworthy.(Comedy Central airs "The Daily Show with John Stewart" and "The Colbert Report".)
However, in a separate question where participants were asked, "Which TV news outlet do you trust the most?", the most number of respondents chose Fox News with 34% saying the network was more reliable than any other network.
PBS was second with 13%; CNN third with 12% and ABC News fourth with 11%. All other networks received less than 10%.
Not only are people polarized but obviously confused.
Take that infamous lawyer-witness exchange "So, Mr. Smith. Have you stopped beating your wife? Yes or No, please" and apply this same stratagem to polling questions and you have a Liberal gold mine of propaganda.
