  •  ABC led with two negative slant stories yesterday (1+ / 0-)

    One was the Fisker story - which as you lay out was unbelievably spun against the Obama administration and DoE funding.

    The other touted theAP/Gfk poll "Obama facing dropping support" - here they:

    -- recast a conclusion that 40+ % of folk are skeptical that Obama would be able to get his program for jobs off the ground as "40+ % don't support the plan"

      My point being that the reason for the skepticism was imputed by ABC. They ignored another interpretation, that Obama might not be seen as able to overcome obstacles in his path - like, for instance, a recalcitrant GOP-led House.

    -- Overall, took the AP/Gfk poll on its face when the demos in the poll appear skewed (their D-R-I numbers seemed strange, Tea Party support was enormously high - at 28%, over Gallup's August numbers for "strong supporter" + "supporter").
