Mike Adams of Natural News has pointed out an egregiously inaccurate chart created by MSNBC, falsely portraying the results of a post-debate poll. Check out his screen shot:
A quick glance tells you Ron Paul eeked out the win, just beating Mitt Romney. Closer examination, however, shows you that in fact Ron Paul received twice as many votes as Romney.
Okay, I thought, their chart graphic is wildly off the mark, so maybe that was just a mistake and they've since corrected it. So I went back to the MSNBC poll page myself, and captured this image (as of 3pm Thursday):
Okay, now Paul is seen as being way in the lead, ahead of Romney. Only... wait a minute, now Paul has 53.5% to Romney's 16%, which is more than three times as many votes. And that top green bar sure ain't three times longer than Romney's bar. So it's still effed.
I'm reminded of this hilarious Daily Show bit (well worth clicking) on how Ron Paul is ignored in the major media. They are really obvious about it. Apparently the people who watch TV news are mostly asleep at the wheel and simply don't notice much, because there's a gross unfairness here which even a child could spot. It ought to piss people off, and it ought to pique their interest as to why the Establishment just hates this guy.
No, he won't win... and thank goodness, because they'd kill him as fast as you can say "military industrial complex" or "corporate fascism".
