1. The question is framed "Should Lou Dobbs keep his job?"
I answered a resounding NO.

5. I think you are misreading - the "yes" is a vote for him to keep his job

6. That's too bad. He needs to go.
Get rid of Pat Buchanan at MSNBC, too. Racist f*ckers belong at Fox.

7. Because you framed the question the opposite of the way...
...it's frame in the poll, I *almost* voted the wrong way. Since you've set up an easy mistake for people to make, you may be doing this poll more harm than could until you edit the thread title.

8. The original headline read that way and I stupidly copied it like that.
I've edited it to fix it and added a warning in my post.

11. Is this really a Yahoo poll?
Edited on Sat Aug-08-09 05:19 PM by skorpo
When you click on the Yahoo image it goes nowhere.
I did vote NO even though I think the poll is a fake.

13. Yeah, that link was from the window that popped up. I got to that window
from my att/yahoo home page:

http://att.my.yahoo.com /

In the center at the top in the "Today's Highlights" box it has four stories. There's a link there to the poll.

16. Remember when news networks used to have news? (And MTV had music videos?)
CNN has gone way downhill.
Between The Larry King Michael Jackson hour (I love Michael but cmon now this is nuts) and the racist fudgenugget that comes on at 7, and the retards that were on earlier today that just read headlines and adlib for all the details making stuff up as they go along, the most non-partisan network has become largely unwatchable.
