Anyone else read today's article in the OD?

here's a good comment:

"I worked for this pollster for a few weeks, as a part time side job. I would not trust the results of one of his polls if it was about what color the grass in my lawn was."

I hear they've fired a bunch of staff recently . Anyone want to take bets as to how much longer they'll still be in Utica? I give them six months.

According to an OD article that ran back in January, Zogby sold off a big chunk of his company (51 percent of sock and 3 of 5 board seats) to Brazilian research firm Ibope.

In five years, Zogby has the option of selling off the rest of the company to Ibope, or in ten years they can buy him out.

Are they still around? I had a friend who worked in their call center and all I ever heard were stories of more people quitting or getting fired. They dont seem to be much in the news any more. Sad.

Zogby is bye bye. Even back when it mattered, his employees would line up at the Savings Bank of Utica to cash their checks, as they never knew if they would be covered.

Kim Piacentino fired me for thumbing through the incident reports that the security gaurd was allowing me to read, hahaha.
I do remember them bouncing payroll checks, even back then.

How is that even possible? He's still listed on their website as the chairman of the board.

Does anyone have an actual news source for this? If this had happened, it would have been a story.

They did it hush hush. He didn't even know about it til he stopped receiving paychecks. He sold over 50% of the company, they can do what they want now. Most of their work has been moved to Miami.

<quoted text>You know you're right. It would have been easy to spot in the OD or on WKTV. Judging by the way they write an extended intro for him every single time he appears in the news they must think his given legal name is "Internationally Famous and World Reknown Pollster John Zogby".
No kidding... he's never suffered from a small ego.
