    White House Vs. Fox (Poll)

    Copied thread from Barf.com:

    If you haven't heard this, the White House is accusing Fox News of not
    being a legitimate source of news, calling them biased, etc. They
    have tried to block Fox reporters from news conferences, etc., but the
    other news networks are fighting back (in favor of Fox) and caused the
    White House to back down. NPR has put a survey online for us to voice
    our opinion. If you want to vote in this survey, go to the link below
    and cast your vote. Currently it is 71% in favor of the White House,
    but there are not that many votes ......... less than 2,000 all
    together. Let's show them how we feel about honest conservative news
    reporting.

    The fact that NPR is conducting the poll is laughable. I listen to NPR every day in the car, and I find misstatements of fact and serious bias several times a week.

    As of right now.

    23% for the White House
    75% for FOX News
    2% for neither

    On NPR no less. A year ago I would have been surprised, but not now. I think most Americans are fair, objective, and are waking up to what is going on. And it's starting to show even on the liberal media side of it.

    Honestly, that's not a representative sample. What happened was that the poll was being answered by standard NPR listeners/viewers, and had results about what Sean posted (65-70% against Fox), and very few responses. Then someone started posting the link on all kinds of internet forums (like ARFcom) with generally conservative members, and the number of responses to the pull shot up (from the thousands to the hundreds of thousands) very quickly, as well as the numbers skewing the other way (to 65-70% for Fox).

    In either the first case (NPR viewers) or the second case (conservative internet users) the results aren't really indicative of anything other than who navigated over to the NPR site to voice their opinion.

    Fox News on this one; it asks questions others don't and the White House should be able to handle them. 76% (578,664 votes)

    True...but it does send a message. Perhaps that message will be "the internet should be censured to avoid this sort of thing".
