The Way They... Surround a Poll

Absurdly biased poll "reporting" from the AP's reliably-partisan Ron Fournier.

This is fun:

Given a choice in the survey, 42 percent favored cutting spending on Iraq to pay for relief efforts on the Gulf Coast, and 29 percent wanted to delay or cancel Republican tax cuts. That's a whopping 71 percent backing options that Bush doesn't even have on the table.

It is? See Correction.

How much of a retard to you have to be to fail to realize that that 42% and 29% have an awful lot of overap between them, and you can't just add them together to get a "whopping 71%" which favor either?

Boy, I wish I could be as wicked-smart as a big time MSM journalist!

Your Mainstream Media Professionals

We were all too dumb for pre-med. Or pre-law. Or pre-phys-ed.

It's a Good Thing I'm Feeling No Pain on Klonopin and Miller Light Or I'd Be Really Embarassed Update: Fournier's math is correct; the way the question is asked, you can add together the 42 and 29 to get 71%.

I don't care. Ron Fournier is still an idiot hack.

Thanks to Allah, who has taken a break from blogging to bust my damn balls 24/7.
