Media lies can’t make a bad night for the newsroom’s goddess go away
By Kevin “Coach” Collins
To say the media is shell shocked at the results of the first debate would be a gross understatement. The media is clearly panicked and in a frenzy, not only by Hillary Clinton’s lackluster performance, but by the results of more than a dozen “Who won?” snap polls conducted immediately after the last softball pitched to Hillary Clinton by the partisan hack masquerading as a moderator.
On Monday night The Charlotte Observer put together a focus group of 21 reportedly undecided potential voters from the Charlotte, North Carolina area which is a longtime Democrat stronghold. They had the group watch the debate and report their feelings and observations to the paper’s political reporters. By definition this means a group of largely liberal voters talked to two liberal reporters representing a liberal McClatchy news outlet.
The piece begins with a lie, “Indeed, while polls found that Clinton had won the first general-election debate with Donald Trump on Monday, she may not have won actual votes…”
There was not a single credible poll showing that Hillary Clinton came close to winning the tag team match where she and her partner, Moderator Lester Holt, attacked Trump throughout the evening.
A quick compilation of 14 of these online polls showed that Trump won each one except the laughable CNN (Clinton News Network) poll by an average of 71%/29%.
These fake reporters know that if someone is reading their article there is a good likelihood that he/she is not computer savvy and would not know how to vote in one of these polls even if they knew the poll existed.
The only place Clinton won was in the newsrooms where lies like this are concocted; not in the world we live in.
The reports from the focus group were pretty much what you could expect from the attention seekers they are.
The four Blacks in the group were liars too. This quartet “recoiled” at Trump’s description of life for Black Americans as “awful.”
They were no doubt selected to insure the reporters could project the “right position” for African-Americans in a state where a recent poll found 32% of Black voters intended to vote for Trump.
In the end, the four supposed “undecided” voters who could have turned into Clinton backers said they were not going to vote for her. Trump may have gotten one new voter and the other 16 were unmoved. Bad news for the newsroom’s goddess.
