Fox Shoots the Messenger — Themselves

In the face of overwhelming polling data that shows Obama with strong leads in both the popular vote and in the electoral college, Fox News naturally goes on the offensive, claiming that all those polls that show Obama ahead are insidious propaganda from the obviously liberal media.

The only problem? Fox News’ own polls show the same thing.

Yes, finally we have a solution to the ironic conundrum of Fox News claiming that the mainstream media are biased, while simultaneously bragging that they are the most popular outlet of the mainstream media. Conclusion? Even Fox News thinks that Fox News is biased!

    LMFAO- Last night Jon Stewart showed a clip where Fox had taken an instant poll of their listeners asking “Who will win Ohio?” 90% responded -Romney. One word Panic, their guy was actually caught saying how he really feels and that he lives in a parallel universe (He watches Fox News).

    My fear is that the reason Fox News (and other partisans) is doing this is because they know that votes are going to be manipulated, and they are just setting it up so that people can believe that all the polls before the election were wrong.

    IK – unless Obama wins in a landslide there will be endless recounts and analysis in this election, and if Romney “steals” it there will be more than recounts – there could be a populist uprising. We’ll see.

    I don’t think Faux thinks the results will be manipulated – I think it’s more likely this is cover for the voter disenfranchisement activity, by claiming that polling is wrong because so many illegals and undesirables are being counted.
