Fair And Balanced?

We've been watching Fox News tonight to see how some of their "fair and balanced" analysts would respond to the fact that John Kerry won their own poll by 2 points! I opend up the potato chips and got ready for the show. I knew that this would be real entertainment We used Brit Hume's "Special Report", since he is their big gun. The fun reved up when Fred Barnes tried to spin the new cell phone polls to Bush's favor and then the real fun begun...


You have to see it to believe it. The written word will not do this kind of comedy justice.

He says the Fox News Poll is nonsense! Kerry leading by 2 points."Who believes that! Nobody believes that! The pollsters don't believe that!"

I almost fell off my couch. The chips caught in my throat.

He goes on to say that Fox should have "thrown that poll out!"

I slipped into unconsciousness for a moment.

Barnes said the best polls are... the ones that show Bush is leading!(I made the last part up) He'd rather use an old poll that shows Bush up by three. Then he criticizes the Gallop poll, because they feel that the undecided voters are leaning toward Kerry. He quotes Mathew Dowd, from the Bush campaign as his source disputing that data.
