[Post-Election Update: Trump’s rural voters showed up at the polls. Hillary only had support – and not enough – in the cities. Generally speaking. That said, Bret Baier managed to spread a whopper of a lie late in the campaign reporting the FBI had an active investigation into the Clinton Foundation. Not true. He later came out and said he was wrong.
The damage was done. Another lie by Fox. The problem: Baier, as opposed to Hannity and their other blowhards, is deemed a “newsman” by the network. Yes, they do make distinctions, for those of your who follow these things.]
How desperate is the Fox News spin machine these days?
On the 23rd October Fox News show Bret Baier actually said the reason Donald Trump is getting beat by Hillary Clinton in nearly every national poll is because Trump supporters are afraid to admit to pollsters that they support Trump.
That’s news to us.
It’s also news to pollsters who ensure likely voters give them valid answers. If pollsters don’t get reliable results, they don’t make money – it’s that simple. They are paid to be accurate. They are NOT paid to be advocates one way or the other. (Well, unless you’re working for outliers, fringe groups or a news network that employs personalities who have vested their personal fortunes in the election of Donald Trump. Um hmph -Hannity!
