Bias? What Bias?

CNN has been running its reaction piece to Dubya's big Iraqi speech of yesterday: Poll: Most Doubt Bush Has A Plan For Iraqi Victory

Kinda makes the speech seem pretty, well, uncredible, don't it. Oh, except there's this little tidbit buried a couple grafs down:

The poll conducted Wednesday does not directly reflect how Americans are reacting to Bush's speech, because only 10 percent of the 606 adult Americans polled had seen it live and two-thirds had not even heard or read news coverage about it.

I suppose CNN had already spent hours typsetting the piece and felt they had to run with it regardless.

Nothing to see here. Nope. Move along.

This pissed me off so much that when I get home (to my proper web-authoring tools), I'm planning to do a Goldstein-esque parody of it where I mock up the whole CNN page and then mock it.

Working title: "Poll: Nothing Bush Could Do Would Make A Goddamned Difference."

I've got to admit, that story left me absolutely gobsmacked. I just posted on it over at Ace's page. (Giving you guys full credit, of course. I have no interest in upsetting a couple of angry, spitting cameloids.)

I have no interest in upsetting a couple of angry, spitting cameloids.

Especially not ones with specialized genitalia-threatening dentia.
