1. I think you know what the fuck is going on here. For months the corporate media has been exploiting
polls to demoralize people, especially Democrats, not to bother to vote, because the implication is it won't matter

This is the very point Stewart was making, the MSM has become a vehicle for creating division, and sensationalism

The truth is if Democrats come out in numbers we will win

What the Democratic party should be pushing for Democrats to vote early

7. Why would MSNBC be trying to suppress Dem turnout?
They have an evening line up that spends each night trying to improve Dem turnout.

The conspiracies theories are a little bizarre.

6. The MSM has also been saying prop-19 is going down in flames
Its also known as "attempted voter suppression by media lies"

They don't make any money, or sell any papers if there isn't any controversy, so they love to manufacture it. The same reason they'll spend an hour on a "special report" about the blue-eyed blond haired rich folks in Ventura getting killed, while ignoring the 2 Hispanics, and 3 African-Americans that got killed in Los Angeles the same week.
