I don’t normally do this, but I think I’ll link up to what DailyKos just pointed out.
It seems the media is trying desperately to say Bush’s poll numbers are inching up. But the truth is, at best, they have stagnated since late November. It’s true that his numbers climbed up from the all-time lows of 35-37%, now up to 41-43%, but that movement was two months ago, and not much has changed since.
I’ve heard of journalists fabricating evidence, and I’ve heard about the distinction between the editorial page and the news page, but one should really draw the line at out-right lying when one’s assertion is completely contrary to the facts.
