WND Promotes Another Meaningless Poll
Topic: WorldNetDaily

WorldNetDaily descends further into joke status with its second story in as many days touting a meaningless, inaccurate poll.

An April 7 article by Chelsea Schilling reported on an "unscientific" MSNBC poll in which a plurality of respondents give President Obama "a grade of "F" for his performance in office." AT no point does Schilling feel the need to tell her readers the truth about "unscientific" polls: that they mean nothing because they are easily gamed to provide fraudulent responses that distort public opinion. Of course, distoring public opinion is Schilling's purpose here.

Schilling's colleague Drew Zahn reported on a similar meaningless poll the day before.
