Some publications will print anything to protect the administration. Cynthia sent me this story via email.
WorldNetDaily posts this article: "The congressman at the center of the battle last week over withdrawal of troops from Iraq removed the results from his own Internet poll on the subject after online voters overwhelmingly opposed his stance....read on"
However, Free Republic has this: Congressman Murthas On-Line Survey: (scroll down for this comment):
watch it now!
Cindy said: "I wrote Joseph Farah at WND and and asked why he thought a freeped poll with bogus results being taken down was newsworthy (of course, in the article he doesn't mention the poll was freeped but he does mention Free Republic). Mr. Farah wrote me back and said:
"We actually thought it was quite newsworthy before it was taken down. But if you don't think so, please don't read the story."
We all have fun with these on-line polls, but I've never seen any publication actually note them to prove their own point of view after a site is announcing that they hijacked it. Hey Farah---never-mind.
