Only FOX Could Miss This Nearly Unanimous Showing For Obama

As if any more proof were needed that FOX News coverage of the presidential race amounts to nothing more than infomercials and propaganda for the McCain campaign, take a look at this survey in a Pennsylvania diner.

Brian Wilson of FOX asked for a show of hands as to how many individuals intend to vote for McCain and how many for Obama. After a nearly unanimous showing for Obama, Wilson concluded, "Alright, see, it's split, I'd say a little heavier toward Obama in the room at the moment, and that's why northeastern Pennsylvania is definitely a battleground area and a battleground state."

Clearly Wilson gave an imbalanced interpretation, even though he represents the station that bills itself as "fair and balanced."
