I was perusing CNN.com just now to see how the right-wing media would spin the massacre that was tonight's Presidential debate. Lo and behold, I see this headline: Poll: Last debate too close to call. I'm thinking, "hmmm that's funny because 5 minutes ago I saw a couple of posts that said that the CNN snap poll showed Obama winning 48-40". That 8 point margin seems wide enough to call, right? So I opened the link, and here is what it says, verbatim:
"Debate viewers split 48% for Obama and 40% for Romney in the poll, a margin within the sampling error of plus or minus 4.5%"
And then all I can say is that for sure CNN is committing journalistic malpractice. This is utter garbage reporting, especially on a matter as significant as the presidential election of the most important superpower on the planet. It's crap like this that keeps this election from being an utter blowout. Even when it is a blowout, they just ignore the facts and say that it's not. Honestly, this is a simple insult to the intelligence of their readers.
OK, sorry for the rant, but I have had enough of the lamestream media. I'm going to bed.
