Modern media is obsessed with polls. They have polls for everything and they are usually done instantly after an event.
They are also almost always biased in wording so that the media outlet can get the answer that they are looking for rather than really put their finger on the pulse of America.
The other bias is simply a lack of a poll for something. Other than outlets like WND showing this we are not seeing who is happy about the hurricane in the south. I would love to see a poll from our "friends" in France (or any country) asking "Who thinks that America got what she deserved?" I think that the results might show us that the French (or any country) aren't our friends after all. Are the Palestinians that the liberals love so much dancing in the streets like they did after 9/11? How about a poll in Palestine?
The other poll that is obviously missing is the illegal alien poll. Try as they might the media is being forced to cover stories about the publics anger over the illegal alien issue, but no polls asking exactly what percentage of the population wants our borders closed and every last illegal deported. Again, the media wouldn't like the answer.
