nice, AOL News!

So the decidedly right wing retardocon (is that somewhere between theocon and neocon?) AOL News puts up a "thumbs up/thumbs down" poll in regard to Obama's Dick Cheney jokes at the annual White House correspondents' dinner, and the self-selected, nonscientific AOL readership poll decides it's 51 point something percent "thumbs down" because they would vote for eating children if the Democrats opposed it, and THEN AOL spins from this a click-on headline on its main page: "52% Didn't Approve of President's Jab." No reference to the fact that it was an unscientific AOL poll; it was clearly being displayed in the context of a real poll, and to put icing on the cake, the fake poll result wasn't even mentioned in the article, which did no real assessment of the President's joke, or anyone else's.

"You've got mail! And bullshit fake news written in a desperate attempt to discredit anything to the left of Dracula!"
