17. Remind Mr. Mitofsky of pollsters' code
I urge you to abide by the polling standards promulgated by the
American Association for Public Opinion Research by publicly:

-- Releasing data to allow verification of your exit poll results by other researchers.
-- Discussing possible sources of error.
-- Describing any special scoring, editing, data adjustment or
indexing procedures (or calibration) used.
-- Describing your sample design.
-- Describing your sample selection procedure.
-- Delivering a full accounting of the final outcome of all "sample
-- Describing how non respondents differ from respondents.

The data no longer have proprietary value to your subscribers.
Election Night is long over, they hired you to help them promptly
report results. Now it's time to make a transition to public service,
Mr. Mitofsky.
