More Games From Pollsters 2

Earlier today, I wrote about the obvious inconsistencies among the latest polls of President Trump's job approval.  In short, there is no way that these polls can be viewed as reliable or correct.  I also pointed out that the media is using only the few that show poor scores for Trump rather than those which give him higher numbers.

I'm updating the post because Project Veritas released some tapes this morning said to be of internal CNN discussions in which CNN staffers seemed to agree that that network was using old polls that bolstered their viewpoint rather than newer polls that contradicted that viewpoint.  The tapes were not recent, so none of the discussion was about job approval ratings for President Trump.  Indeed, the tapes are still from the days when president Obama was in office.  The point, however, is that CNN appears on the tapes to be manipulating the news about polls that it reports in order to strengthen its favored narrative.

I can't say that this is a surprise.
