    I saw this on FOX News last night. People were interviewed after they voted and were asked some very simple questions. And since it wasn't a scientific poll they also did a Zogby phone poll with the same results.

    I use to work in the news media. Yes, they slanted the news to their editorial viewpoint. The publisher, even the news editors dictate what and how to cover assignments. "Don't like it kid? Leave, there's the door! Photographers like you are a dime a dozen!"
    It's never been a surprise that Fox News is pro Bush/Republican.

    The footage in the thread is very interesting. It just show to me, that these people voted based on outside information perhaps far above their intelligence. No surprise there either. I am curious of their education level and location. Perhaps this too is news media bias. Hey, isn't that a Fox logo I see?

    No surprise the Republican party got a bad rep with Bush as president. Someone, in a post election interview, said "no republican candidate could have won." Sorry I don't remember who it was. (Guess, too much beer.) Anyway, I agree with that. The Republican party is in a tailspin, much like the Democratic party was after Bush won his second term.

    I look t it this way, we survived Richard Nixon (remember him).

    YES, there is news bias. Don't believe what you read or what you see on TV.
    Ever wonder why the news footage was so graphic from Vietnam compared to that of Iraq?

    Let's have a beer boys! I'm dry!

    I believe that most Americans listen to their favorite news outlet and believe it for fact. Instead they should do research for themselves. I am not a far right Republican but there are policies that I think are important to me and I vote that way. Americans need to really think about this free elections thingy. Because before ya know it, it could be gone. And then we'll wish we could have taken our voting rights seriously!

    I agree Missleman.
    Perhaps people don't know how to research nor do they have the time or interest to do such.
    It's sad.
    It was sad to me that guys on this site were gonna vote for Palin cause she had a "hot bod!" The young American voter.

    I gotta go paint the bathroom...today's project. Then a beer.

    Yes, STEAMING! I'd vote for her in a beauty pageant, but to vote for her for VP based on cup/waist size?
    In my mind not the proper way to vote for our leaders.

    I remember a former french porn actress ran for office in France of course...I think she won. I don't remember the details. TOO LAZ TO RESEARCH!

    "Hey, Mr. Korean leader, check out these boobs! Wanna talk peace?!" Who knows, maybe it would have worked!
    HEADLINE: VP SHOWS TITS FOR WORLD PEACE! lol!

    I gotta go....really, have a nice day.

    12 people out of a millions that voted.....that "documentary" is a joke.

    I would take that guys challenge of creating my own and ask 12 McCain voters and would get the same results.

    obviously he is a republican and just pissed. cause if he's blaming all media, that also means FOX news, the station he was just on, and they are pro republican all the way. :confused:

    I wonder how many people were interviewed before "they" got the one's they wanted for their point of view.
    I remember having to go to the streets for the "man, excuse me: "person on the street" interview. I had to ask 12 people their view on some lame topic and photograph a head shot.
    The editor would the pick the one's that best fit the paper image based on answers and race.
    Amazin'
    The truth is out there, but ya' ain't gettin it.

    Back to painting!

    Well they freely admit that it was not a scientific poll. But they did a phone poll afterwards with the same results.

    its funny but it really doesnt prove anything. what i didnt like about this election is that voting for Obama became the "trendy" thing to do. so many people who know nothing about either party simply voted for him because he was different and new. i know republicans have a bad rap right now and a lot of people want someone new but people really need to make up their own minds instead of taking the medias side (and anyone who says that the media didnt heavily favor Obama is lying, or an idiot). just my thoughts.

    I agree with ya PatHLC128 .The media did side with Obama. That's why Palin got such a neg rap in the news. This is why she's taking even more.
    I wish I paid more attention to the Fox News channels during all this. But, I don't pay much attention to TV news, let alone pickup a newspaper.

    Anybody is better than bush. I wish we had a reset button to elect all new canidates for this election. Maybe if all 4 of them got together they could do something. Who do you vote for when faced with the choices we had??? I hope something good comes out of this. We can all only hope. I don't think we can take another 4 years of a bad president.

    Look, Bush sucked but I still think that between Kerry and Bush, Bush was the better choice. I've yet to see a candidate that has the same views and concerns as I do. IMO Reagan was the one closest.
