LOL! Watch Reuters try to spin chimp's poll numbers
Chimp at 46, Lead cut in half from last poll, Nader at 6 percent (which is how they're going to cover the BBV theft, folks) yet the hoes at Reuters focus on the fact that he's polling within the margin w/ Kerry.

I guess some Kool Kids are shameless enough to shill until the bitter end, but it sure is fun watching them soil themselves!

1. Did I miss a merger? I thought Reuters was a British company.

Bush's approval rating at all-time low

Different polls, I know, but the difference in tone is pretty obvious.

Plus, no matter where they're from, their board doesn't look like a anti-corporatist cabal either:
