Again History Is Made On DU - EXIT POLL THEORY Bounces Back
Advertisements [?]
Edited on Fri Nov-12-04 06:31 AM by althecat
BIGGER THAN WATERGATE productions in association with the Democratic Underground Presidential Results & Discussion Forum & BUZZFLASH presents

A recording of internet links for posterity's sake showing history in the making in an internet forum


Or

how a few clued up internet bloggers make the WashPost and NYT look like a bunch of clueless morans.



A story set right here on DU. Featuring Flintdem, GregD, and yours truly.in the style of SoCalDemocrat, Faun Otter and the immortal TIA. And introducing - for the first time - a new rising star in the world of DU verifiedvote2004.

The story begins.(Not on a cold day in upstate NY but in the early hours of Thursday morning in Karori, Wellington, NZ)

DUER ALTHECAT (the author of this tale) BEGS TO DIFFER ON EXIT POLL IRRELEVANCY

FREEMAN'S PAPER - BASED ON SIMON'S DATA
The Unexplained Exit Poll Discrepancy
Dated 10th November....

Though the time or writing is not known, because it refers to the computer glitch at the bottom of page 2 (Footnote 5 refers to the same Washington Post report).... I think it is probable that he completed it after the DU post appeared. Reading between the footnotes (and I am guessing here) Jonathan Simon sent his data to Freeman to see what he thought of it on Nov. 6th. The long and the short of this tale is that Jonathan Simon has made an enormous impact through staying up late on election night copying down some Exit Poll data.

ALTHECAT DU POST TWIGGING TO WHY THE MEDIA GOT THIS SO WRONG
Caltech Study On Exit Polls - Is This Why The Media Backed Off?

Sothat's how it happens that's how insignificant bloggers working at home on subjects that make many people's eyes glaze over manage to make Peter Jennings blow a gasket on the evening news.

With Buzzflash promoing this VERY EXCELLENT REPORT of Dr Stephen F Freeman's as if their life depended on it. And with the report being so DAMN HOT. I think it is reasonable to predict the reporting of EXIT POLL discrepancies is about to make a GIGANTIC comeback in MSM.

SO NOW LETS SEE WHERE THE MEDIA TAKE THIS ONE ROLL ON RANDI RHODES AND KEITH OLBERMANN
