An Aug. 11 CNSNews.com article by Adam Cassandra promotes a poll by the Military Culture Coalition -- which Cassandra describes only as " affiliated with the Center for Military Readiness" -- finding that, among other things, "59 percent of Democrats think that members of Congress should consider the opinions of homosexual advocacy groups over the opinions of top military commanders when considering a repeal of the law prohibiting homosexuality in the military."
Cassandra fails to mention the bias of the group -- a operation supported by right-wing activists that opposes the repeal of the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy. Also unmentioned by Cassandra is that one of those right-wing activists backing the group is none other than Brent Bozell, Cassandra's boss.
CNS has a history of failing to disclose conflicts of interest in the organizations it promotes. Last year, it repeatedly promoted a group opposed to President Obama's speech at Notre Dame without disclosing that Bozell was a member of the group's board of directors.
Cassandra also failed to note the ideological slant of the pollster the group used, The Polling Company/WomanTrends. As we've previously noted when CNS has promoted its findings, The Polling Company's owner, Kellyanne Conway, is a partisan Republican activist.
