Biased NewsMax Poll in Progress
Topic: Newsmax

Something to keep in mind when NewsMax starts touting the results of its meaningless online poll on the compromise immigration bill:

-- NewsMax is promoting it on its website with the following line: "Back McCain-Kennedy Amnesty? Vote!" 

-- It has sent out the following email to its mailing list:

Dear NewsMax Reader:

The Senate led by Senators Ted Kennedy and John McCain has proposed an immigration deal that will give 12 million illegal aliens amnesty and eventual citizenship.

This bill will soon go to the House.

It is urgent you let the media and Congress know your opinion about the amnesty deal.

Vote today in NewsMax's online poll — Go Here Now.

Also please forward this email to as many friends and family as you can.

Thank you.

In other words, by waving McCain and Kennedy -- two people NewsMax hates -- as the masterminds of the bill and repeatedly invoking "amnesty," this poll will be even more biased and meaningless than usual.
