We know these things for sure since Obama took office:
1.) There is nothing he can do that is viewed as too extreme to the state run media
2.) The state-run media is so corrupt today that you will never hear the full truth to any story
3.) The state-run media will do whatever it has to do to influence public opinion to support their radical leftist agenda
Yesterday the New York Times-CBS released a poll on the public employee union battle taking place in Wisconsin and across the nation. The numbers of protesters at the Wisconsin capitol are dwindling, the support for the public employee unions across the US is weak and most Americans want government to cut its irresponsible borrowing and spending. Knowing this, the state-run media had to put something together to support Obama and democrats and they had to be quick about it.
This is what they came up with.
The poll claims that 40% of Republicans support the public employee unions to some extent in this conflict.
My brother the international auditor put together this chart:
The poll also claims that 3 months after the historic landslide election support for the tea party sank from around 70% to 27% .
Yeah, right… That’s factual.
This poll is a crock. It was only published to shift support away from Governor Scott Walker.
The state-run media has no shame.
Related… For those employees in unions who want part of their dues refunded PACNW Rightly and UnionRefund.org have information that can help you.
UPDATE: HotAir has more on the skewed poll.
UPDATE: Professor Jacobson found similarly skewed numbers from the latest PPP poll.
