    Sure theyre liars but (1) if this got out it would be the end of them, the risk is too high (2) bad polls can work either way - energize or depress. I think they just had an outlier.

      There are multiple instances of Fox and the Republicans getting caught playing games.  

      The Jessica Lynch propaganda piece was a prime example I'd say.  

      Was that the end of the Republican party?  Or the end of anyone in it?  If it was, I never saw it.  Even Don Rumsfeld is being used on Fox to bash Obama.  And the US military basically demanded he resign because he was dishonest/incompetent/had terrible judgment/never took responsibility for his errors.

      Murdoch's been caught using unlawful means to run his businesses, in fairly sordid ways.  Has that meant anything here to the RW base?

      They can play around with the numbers in a news poll.  They little or no fear if they were caught.

      Look what happened to the latest Fox whistleblower.  They're going to destroy him.

      would be the end of them?  It's worth rethinking that statement, I'd say.  I think they'd have been gone a loooong time ago if that were the case.  

      That being said, it is pretty silly to chase our tails around trying to guess what's going on with them and this outlier poll.  

      When the truth is only a matter of opinion, advantage goes to the liars.
