Check out the latest NYT/CBS Poll regarding the war in Iraq. Here are two graphics from the CBS website that I thought you might find interesting.
Notice anything weird? Look again. Notice anything funny in the graph in the second image? The size of the bar for 63% compared to the size of the bar for 66%?
Yep- typical for the NY Times, typical for the Dan Rather crowd. When the numbers don’t go your way- just make it look like they are going your way. We know you don’t want this war guys (not that anyone really does), but try to shoot straight with us. Pretty Please?
Lazy, incompetent hacks. They really do think no one is paying attention. And before 9 million people write to say this is not bias, I will agree with you it may not be intentional bias- but it is most certainly misleading and biased- and why does it never happen in the other direction? How many coincidences like this do we have to point out before people will finally question whether there may be an agenda?
While you are at it, go check out the NYT Op-Ed about the poll numbers:
While 82 percent of whites said the United States should take military action to oust Mr. Hussein, just 44 percent of blacks said they supported that approach. In addition, 71 percent of whites said they were proud of what the United States was doing in Iraq, compared with 33 percent of blacks.
*** Update ***
According to Mike at Cold Fury, the website has made the correction, and didn’t bother to tell anyone or explain why it had been wrong in the first place.
