just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they're not polling you

None at all. And the BBC is the most pristine of all.

Just because you agree with it doesn't mean it isn't biased.

I never claimed the BBC was pristine or unbiased. and yes, they are in a shitload of trouble right now.

but that can take up a whole different thread. I was just pointing out that the constant liberal bias whine seems thoroughly off base at least in these polls.

I have said before I don't think there isn't a somewhat liberal bias in the media. I think the very nature of the industry and who it attracts tend to be more liberal than your average heartlander. What I dispute is that it has a left bias. More specifically, a pro union, pro labour, anti corporate bias. So yes. Much of the media isn't anti gay. but far less is pro labour.

But let's keep on topic. Whine whine whine polls Obama whine can't wash any more, surely.

Suddenly, the prejudices of the right (henceforth I guess we should call them "the wrong") were starkly, unambiguously revealed. Not many people I know watch Fox news but, on election night, I think liberal, left-wing viewers outnumbered everyone else. Pure comedy. :twisted:

I wonder if they could be wrong about anything else?

Or Ireland. Or I guess anyone outside of USia, because apparently it's impossible to stream video data from 'murica to the rest of the world on the global internet.
