So-Called Liberal Media Skews Obama Approval Ratings…Downward

That pesky liberal media is at it again. Here’s the headline from CNN:

68% Give Obama Speech a Thumbs-Up

Hmmm…so if 68 percent liked it, then I guess 32 percent didn’t, right? Wrong. Actually, almost everyone liked it.

Sixty-eight percent of speech-watchers questioned in a CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey had a very positive reaction, with 24 percent indicating that they had a somewhat positive response and 8 percent indicating that they had a negative reaction.

Hold on, 68 percent were very positive, while another 24 percent were somewhat positive? So 92 percent were positive? But the headline says only 68 percent gave the speech a “thumbs-up.”

In fact, only 8 percent gave it a thumbs-down. But wait, there’s more.

Eighty-five percent of those polled said the president’s speech made them more optimistic about the direction the country is headed in over the next few years, with 11 percent indicating that the speech made them more pessimistic.

Eighty-two percent of speech-watchers say they support the economic plan Obama outlined in his prime-time address, with 17 percent opposing the proposal.

Yes, 85 percent said the speech made them feel more optimistic and 82 percent say they support it. And yet, we were told that only 68 percent give it a “thumbs-up.”

If that was the liberal media, I guess we can expect this headline from FOX:

Just Over Half of Americans Like Obama Plan

    Actually what they are more likely to say is “Almost half of Americans do not like the Obama Plan”.

    Boycott CNN, the network that is even worse than Fox, because they pretend to be fair! Fox makes no pretense, but CNN shills and lies continually and sneakily. Rather, watch MSNBC, which is the fairest and most balanced network of them all.
