FOX POLLS: Wholly Lacking Authenticity! Gun Control & Biden

The media is all atizzy over a poll conducted by Fox News which shows Biden ahead of Trump by 10 points…  Newest Poll addresses controversial Gun Control and Trump Ratings.   Just because Fox bills itself as conservative does not mean Fox IS conservative.   Their choice of polling companies proves a far different, if not negligent analysis:

As of 2011, Fox News uses Braun Research to conduct their polls, according to the fine print.

Reviews for Braun are rather awful!   The most damning being that the calls are late at night, the questions asked are meaningless, and the person asking the questions doesn’t seem to know what poll they are asking questions for…   Yelp reviews are even worse than Google with one person filing a complaint with the FCC claiming the company is a Scam. Another caller claimed that Braun said they were an ‘engineering firm’ when conducting the survey.

Former Employee comment: “The company was driven off results no matter how achieved.”  

Another Employee:   “Although the pay was very acceptable for a 16 year old…”

Another Employee:   “had to able to read verbatim and accurate.” 

And then there was this Former Employee:   “Watch out, surveys are falsified and there is mold in the building. Most of the employees are ex cons or drug users. No background checks so the job is great if you are starting from scratch.”

Oops!

Their main office would appear to be a rather ramshackle hole in the wall in an apartment mall of sorts in New Jersey.

There are complaints lodged against them, and employee turnover in the US would seem quite rapid – errr rabid, but then the reviews claim they hire mostly people in high school and survey calls are conducted until ‘midnight’.  OUCH!  Who answers a survey at midnight?

Braun does the fieldwork and submits their data to Beacon Research a very small ‘boutique’ company with 5 employees including; a president, 2 directors and 2 analysts. The president and founder, Chris Anderson, is a noted Democrat and according to his online bio, “He learned the trade from two pioneers and legends of Democratic political polling —John Gorman at Opinion Dynamics and Tom Kiley at Kiley & Company.”

Andrew Schwartz, one of the Directors states on his bio, “ …cut his political teeth working for President Barack Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign, directing field operations in 13 precincts in North Carolina”.  

Analyst, Terry Classen’s bio: “Terry volunteered on Senator Bernie Sanders’ 2016 campaign for president.”

Co-Founder, Matthew Shelter, “was part of the polling team for John Kerry’s 2004 presidential campaign. Other candidates he has worked for include U.S. Senators Elizabeth Warren, Claire McCaskill and Ted Kennedy; Governor Deval Patrick; Rep. Niki Tsongas; New York State Comptroller Carl McCall; Manhattan District Attorney Robert Morgenthau; Allegheny County Executive Rich Fitzgerald; Pittsburgh Mayor Tom Murphy and Syracuse Mayor Stephanie Miner. Matthew has also advised the Democratic Assembly Campaign Committee in New York State for more than 20 years”.

Gosh darn! Surprise! Surprise! Surprise!

Fox News has clearly tarnished itself with this absolute rubbish! These companies are entirely unprofessional, biased, and unworthy of a conglomerate like Fox News. But that’s who they hired to conduct the poll on behalf of Biden.

FAKE POLLS – FULL OF HOLES!

Fox News: The Trojan Horse Embracing Liberal Progressives

Deutsche Welle has once again uploaded its hypocrisy in slamming Russia’s Putin for hypocrisy. Apparently, Putin is a hypocrite for attending the 100th birthday celebration of Nobel laureate Alexander Solzhenitsyn who upheld the right of freedom of speech.  What was Solzhenitsyn a critic of?  Communism, Bolshevik Dictators, Lenin and Stalin.   He was born in 1918 when Russia’s Tsar and family were brutally murdered and the Bolsheviks ushered in the dictatorship Communist rule destroying Russia’s economy and sending society into chaos.   Exiled for decades he loved his country and returned to Russia in 1990 becoming a vocal proponent of Vladimir Putin!   Solzhenitsyn believed Putin would reinstate Russian Nationalism, freedom and prosperity.  His theme when he died was that “Men Have Forgotten God” – a reference to the communist/socialists who are devoutly atheist.

Apparently, DW.com failed miserably to research this friendship and instead used a fake demonization agenda to ridicule Putin.   Of course, the fact that Merkel herself was a Communist before she was a Socialist seems to elude the Media.

While the MSM have created innumerable ‘Fact Checker’ sites to discredit Trump for ‘Pinocchio’s’, they rarely if ever fact check themselves!    And recent articles discrediting Trump have suddenly begun to rise from the ashes from a place one might not ordinarily  conceive…

Fox News is now publishing articles and opinion pieces that are just – well, wrong.  ‘A Statistician Assistant Professor is weighing in on the cost of the Border Wall’.   The fact that she would have absolutely no knowledge of construction costs, engineering, material costs, labor costs, or even what exists already in terms of The Wall, would seem irrelevant.   If I was building a house, a store, an office building, I don’t think I would hire a ‘statistician’ and don’t know of any contractor that has.    But she is – anti-Trump.

Brennan too is given the opportunity to voice his demand that Trump be killed, and never hold office again, and Fox News glibly reports this as a static fact.  What Fox failed to note is that Rand Paul called out Brennan as being mentally unstable and thus his security clearance was revoked.   As in, the man worships demons.

So what happened to Fox News?

In 2017 they hired Noah Kotch to be Editor in Chief and Vice President of Digital for Fox News.  His background resume reads like a true Liberal:  CNN, Washington Post, NBC, and ABC.  His appointment would align with the takeover of Fox from the staunchly conservative Ruport Murdoch by his son James and wife Kathryn, also in 2017.  Between 2007-2011, Kathryn Murdoch served as Director of Strategy & Communications for the Clinton Climate Initiative.  James and Kathryn have a Foundation (no surprise – legal speak for diversion of money to non-taxable) wherein a link on their foundation website reverts to a page for EDF and an anti-Trump ad.   Apparently, James and Kathryn hobnob frequently with the Clintons, most recently at the wedding of two of the next generations most wealthy Indians;  Isha Ambami and Anand Piramal.  Mz. Ambami’s father is worth $66 billion and is Chairman of Reliance Industries.  Anand’s father is worth a measly $4.3 billion.

Reliance is a massive conglomerate involved in oil, petrochemicals, biotechnology, retail, aerospace, banking, pharmaceuticals, pipelines, media, solar, etc… and the Murdochs were on the guest list.

Kathryn Murdoch has announced her support for the upcoming platform, The Correspondent, which is slated to be launched soon and will uphold values ‘wholly different than those of Fox News’, embracing diversity and combating prejudice while supporting ‘progressive realities’.

James Murdoch was instrumental in removing O’Reilly and Ailes from their positions in Fox News.  He has made it clear that shifting to a more progressive liberal view will be the new Fox News.

The media censorship is expanding brutally.  With Blogs more and more becoming the last bastion of anything – not liberal or socialist leaning.   I imagine those venues will be attacked next and their content censored, but then effectively that is already being done by Google.  Recently, Google’s CEO was sportingly embarrassed when it was revealed that their analytics showed a picture of Trump when typing in a Google search for ‘idiot’.   Interestingly, when I typed in ‘corruption’, I got a picture of Hillary.

It will be interesting to see what happens to the last two conservatives employed by Fox:  Hannity and Carlson.  Will they convert their politics?  Will they sell their souls?

Rubio – Was The GOP Debate Rigged?

While the headlines of bloggers evaluate the news that Rubio’s Campaign Press Secretary is the daughter of Fox News VP, Bill Sammon, the crafter of the GOP debate questions, they seem to have missed a point.

While Fox News had a direct conflict of interest – so did Rubio!

With Brooke Sammons tweeting extensively about Rubio’s purported ‘win’ at the debates, and Cruz making the statement that he was being unfairly and unequally attacked by the questions posed to him – Rubio skated. In fact Christie even stated that the questions seemed to be unfairly targeting Cruz while Rubio seemed overly cocky, his answers potentially rehearsed. When responses are too clean, too sharp, too rehearsed, the hairs on my back begin to prickle…

Could Sammon have given the questions to his daughter, Brooke Sammon, so that Rubio could craft answers before the debate?

Definitely a possibility. Sammon has a history and it isn’t all good.

To add fire to the furnace, apparently, the pollster, Frank Luntz, who was asked to air results of the debate immediately afterward is also connected to Rubio. Luntz was hired by Rubio in 2012 to write “100 Innovative Idea’s for Florida’s Future”. Luntz tweeted and tallied and splurged in his raving reviews of Rubio while cashing in on the frenzy. While these relationships should be revealed for their conflict of interest, they weren’t and the silence didn’t just run through Fox News – it ran through Marco Rubio. And that does not bode well for an honest, God driven, man of integrity.

While Fox News purports to be unbiased, this is a rather disingenuous move with one motive – bump up Rubio in the ratings, and attack Cruz and Trump. If it is discovered that Rubio had access to the debate questions beforehand, that could mean the end of his campaign. But the ideal of unbiased is a rock laden road for Sammon who has been caught directing the opinion of his journalists on a number of occasions.

While it is not a media crime to be biased, most stations openly admit their view, others allude to it, and still others are bought out. But Fox’s claim puts each and every journalist into the limelight as they lose credibility with the knowledge that Sammon tells them what to say, what to think, what opinion to have, and who will win in an ‘unbiased format’. It’s like rigging a football game.

Could Rubio and Sammon find themselves in a legal pickle?

There are laws regarding “Ethics” under the US Office of Government Ethics Statute 18 USC; 201 – 209 which detail the code of conduct of all government employees. Conflict of Interest laws require ‘full disclosure’ – Rubio did not comply with that directive.

In addition, Florida has enacted very strict Ethics Laws with respect to past and present government employees and those running for public office. The purpose of these laws is to uphold faith and trust by the People in a government that is not beyond reproach. When that truth is violated, there are consequences in place.

While as a result of Sammon, Fox News may lose viewers, Rubio stands to lose his very core – his integrity as a Presidential candidate.
