CNN is finally realizing the cause is lost. This is the equivalent of "back up 10 yards and punt." They want to save whatever is left of their
reputation (which at this point isn't much). They did something similar in 2000, when we had the Bush-Gore fiasco. In their haste to declare Gore the
next President (that still makes my hair stand on end to say that), they called Florida for Gore prematurely. The problem was that all of the polls
had not yet closed in Florida! Florida spans two time zones, Eastern and Central. South Florida is a bastion of Democratic support and is in the
Eastern time zone, while the panhandle in Central time is strongly Republican. When the state was called, I was watching the returns; Bush was far
ahead of Gore with an hour of voting left in the panhandle.
I switched over to Fox News because of that.
Of course, at one point Fox News got pretty biased in the other direction and I switched back to CNN. I figured, hey, they screwed up... they learned
from their mistake and won't do it again. Boy, was I wrong! In 2016 they broke the Billy Bush story to damage Trump, in a way I considered an
absolutely inexcusable invasion of privacy in order to accomplish a political hit job.
I switched back to Fox News because of that.
All of the networks have a bias. Fox News has a strong Republican bias, while the rest of the MSM (NBC, ABC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC) have a strong Democratic
bias. None have a bias toward Trump; Fox has Hannity of course, who is a close friend of Trump, but Hannity is a pundit. I'm talking reporters.
Fox gives Trump a fairer shake because Trump is the fire behind the Republicans right now. If Trump had gotten elected as a Democrat, Fox would not
give him as fair a shake. The remainder of the MSM will not give Trump any credit at all for the same reason: they see Trump as their largest problem
supporting the Democrats. Notice I did not say Republican policies or Democratic policies... it is not the policies that are being
supported; it is the parties themselves. The policies are simply there to attract votes.
All the networks know how to skew polls, and all the networks know that polls can be a self-fulfilling prophesy. Everyone wants to be on the "winning
team." So a good pollster can create questions that include hidden bias and select areas to poll that include bias, and get pretty much any result
they want. They can then take those numbers along with the biases they included and know what the real polls would say without the biases. They don't
tell us this; they show us their biased polls to get us to jump on the winning team.
It sounds to me like the internal polling numbers are showing the same thing they showed in 2016, to an even greater extent: America will again
declare Donald Trump President in 2020. If the polls didn't self-fulfill in 2016, they won't do so in 2020, and CNN cannot survive this way for four
more years. They have to back off their open agendas and give in... or at least appear to. I'll not switch back to them after this time. I know they
haven't learned anything other than it's time to CYA and lay low for a while.
Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.
It wouldn't be so bad if the DNC leadership hadn't gone so bat-guano insane the last three years. Ilhan Omar should be toast this time, losing by a
wide enough margin to make CNN pundits cry real tears. She has become an embarrassment to the USA and to Minnesota. Any time an area swings too far in
one political direction, the pressure to swing back increases and this is apparently Minnesota's breaking point. Good thing too. When i was driving a
truck, Minneapolis/St. Paul passed an ordinance that prohibited truck idling. Now, that's bad enough, as it endangers the health of the drivers and
makes it hard to get enough rest, but they went farther: they also banned idling reefer units. Those reefer units are what keeps perishable food from
spoiling during transit! They literally outlawed food that wasn't spoiled!
Understand that: Minneapolis/St. Paul's solution to Global Warming was to make the people eat spoiled food.
The DNC leadership has gone even farther into loco-land with the "New Green Deal." The people are seeing what it is they have been supporting, and
they're backing off on that support. CNN knows it, and CNN is running scared. They have spent the last three years making a bed they will now have to
sleep in. As long as CNN has the same people in management as they do now, I will not return to watching them no matter how many conservatives they
