83 percent of blacks no longer look to the NAACP for leaders
Ha Ha... Gotcha... I love David Brocks, Media Matters for America. Today he catches a repuke in an out and out lie regarding a phantom poll:

FOX guest cited phantom poll to blast NAACP and boost Bush

Belittling the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) and citing misleading poll data, FOX News Channel guest Robert L. Woodson Sr., founder and president of the National Center for Neighborhood Enterprise, vigorously defended President George W. Bush's decision to reject his fourth consecutive invitation to speak at the NAACP's annual convention. When FOX News senior White House correspondent Jim Angle -- who was filling in for Hume as host of the July 15 edition of Special Report with Brit Hume -- prompted him on the source of the poll data, Woodson faltered.

From the July 15 edition of FOX News Channel's Special Report with Brit Hume:

ANGLE: Let me ask you first, in your view was the president right or wrong to pass an opportunity to speak?

WOODSON: He was absolutely correct in passing this up opportunity.

<...>

WOODSON: And his vilification of the president really does a disservice to the organization, forgetting that 83 percent of blacks no longer look to the NAACP for leadership. And I think that ...

ANGLE: Now where does that figure come?

WOODSON: Well, there are some figures -- there are some surveys done when the black community was asked.
