    This poll indicates she didnot do very well.

    Do you think MSNBC is an unbiased source ?

    I did ... go back and read the post again ... carefully. :laugh:

    I am not sure how the results of a poll, like this one, can be considered biased. Two simple questions to answer.

    Is MSNBC biased? Is Fox News biased? It is all in the eye of the beholder.

    Did you vote in the poll?

    Sigh.

    I reread it. You didn't answer. If I was to assume an answer from your post, you could rightly accuse me of putting words in your mouth.

    So, do you consider MSNBC an unbiased source ?

    Sigh

    Do you ever answer a question?

    I didn't say that. In fact I do not watch MSNBC, ABC, CBS or Fox for news. None of them go into depth on issues and all, in my humble opinion, skew their news so they will not loose advertisers. I do watch the News Hour and find they usually present a fairly balanced program and often have people resresenting both side of an issue.

    But, whether MSNBC is biased is not of any importance in the result of the poll. Did you see how many people have voted. Did you vote or did you simply read the post and then pose a meaningless question?

    A meaningless question ? Sure has got you stumped.

    What was your reason for singling out this poll ? Seems like you could have picked one from a better source. I think you posted it to prop Obama up, and I don't blame you. But MSNBC being so in the Obama tank that even Brokaw is ashamed tells me their polls can't be trusted.

    Do you trust them ? Yes or no would be great.

    As I have said in other posts, when looking at a poll see what it says and then throw it in the trash can ... that is about all polls are worth at this stage of the game. I just thought it interesting. Frankly I was surprised at the results. If it had been the other way I would have posted it for the same reason ... just an interesing result with no significant meaning. So Brokawis right ... but he probably did not go far enough. Even the fairest poll is simply a snap shot of opinion at a given instance. As soon as the results are tabulated they are out of date.

    Do I trust them? In what way. I trust all coroprations to do what they think will turn them a profit. To these corporations the happiness of the advertisers comes first, their perceived audience is second. That I always take into consideration when reading or viewing news from profit making corporations.

    How 'bout you? Do you trust any new corporations?

    The person who looked horrible is John McCain. In his first big decision he has clearly blown it.

    Your post showed none of this reported doubt. Seemed to imply the exact opposite.

    Do you trust the poll you quoted, and linked to, and commented on to be accurate ?

    You mean "newS corporations" ? Hardly. I try to find several sources for a story before forming an opinion.

    Online polls are biased because they are not scientific. They are made up of people who visit the website and who take the time to vote (sometimes more than once). So the poll can be very biased. Ask yourself who reads the website in question.

    I'll admit I haven't seen the complete interview. But on the part I did see, Gov. Palin tried to justify the earmarks Alaska received. In other words the federal money she gets is ok but the money other politicians get is wrong. She said she won't judge gays. Yet the Bible tells me it's wrong, (I thought she was a Bible believer?) She use to say gobal warming wasn't because of man but now it is?
    I also got the impression as commander in chief she would go to war with Russia, over a country like Georgia(which use to be part of the Soviet Union). I believe if you are thinking of voting for her, watch the interview again.

    Palin was a brilliant strategic move on Mccain's part.

    That's what has you so panicked.

    You were supposed to get that impression. Careful editing of the interview made sure of it.
