This is almost too pathetic to bring up, but since that's what the right has become--pathetic--and since I write obsessively about the right, I'm afraid I have little choice. I'm a victim of my own, gruesome interests.
Here we go:
Townhall.com is giddy ("with euphoria," as the National Journal would add) that "The number of people who have taken the CNBC poll has doubled, bringing those who agree with Romney's [recent] comments to 76 percent."
Pretty astounding, right? But that's a straw poll which Townhall is so giddily citing, and straw polls have about as much validity as one of Baghdad Bob's news conferences.
Still, from CNBC's "finding," Townhall pronounces the universal outrage expressed at Romney's comments to be "faux outrage," because, well, to rephrase and repeat, the "CNBC poll shows 75 percent of voters believe Mitt Romney was right."
Now that's a factual statement, even though Tonwhall then concedes, "No, the poll isn't scientific"--but, wait for it, "it is an indication of the media running with a narrative opposite of what the country actually believes" [italics mine].
This comes from Townhall's "News Editor," who, I assume, is paid. Why?
