Fox News is back to it’s old tricks again. The so-called “fair & balanced” news network recently showed a poll from Quinnipiac University that was polling the declared and possible GOP Presidential candidates, and as for their old tricks, they did something to piss off a lot of people.
Here is how they displayed the poll on their broadcast:
Now, something is amiss. Who is missing? What declared candidate was left out? Rand Paul, who actually was covered in this poll. The sad news is, is that one of the most biased and untrusted networks, MSNBC, covered the SAME POLL, and they included Rand Paul, who came in at 7%.
Fox News has some answering to do. Of course, they’ll call it a big mistake and an error, which I do believe is the usual go-to b***s*** answer coming from them. They did the same thing to Ron, but then it was different. Rand is a bigger threat than his father was, and Fox is more worried that he will be a major threat to their choice of candidate: Jeb Bush.
Don’t get me wrong, the people at Fox News are probably split on who they want, but what they make it feel like, and who they have on, makes people assume they’re really favoring Jeb Bush. This isn’t just an “Oh, you’re just upset they’re not supporting your guy!” complaint. Ask the fans of Cruz. Of Walker. Of Carson. Or even of Fiorina. They’d agree with me on the sentiment that Fox News wants Jeb Bush to be the nominee.
Honestly, I’m still waiting to meet Floridians who want Jeb to be their President. He’ll have a tough time wining the state if he is the pick, as there are many more Democrats than Republicans, and the GOP is only furthering itself on a downward spiral if they believe that Jeb can bring people in from the left to support him, when he basically is Hillary Clinton.
Fox News needs to stop being Jeb Bush’s cheerleader and biggest advocate. Your job is to report the news. I want to know what my government is doing to me. How about covering that, and not whether Jeb is going to announce today or tomorrow?
