New York Times Death Spiral (Misogyny Watch Edition)
Adam Nagourney and Megan Thee spin their poll to try to convince us that whites do not like Michelle Obama:
Poll Finds Obama Isn’t Closing Divide on Race: There was even racial dissension over Mr. Obama’s wife, Michelle: She was viewed favorably by 58 percent of black voters, compared with 24 percent of white voters...
Here is what the poll says:
Doesn't the fact that 56% of whites surveyed either refused to answer this question, said that they were undecided, or said that they did not know enough worthy of inclusion?
And whence comes the word "dissension" anyway?
John McCain's wife, Cindy McCain, is not mentioned in the story at all. According to the poll, she is viewed favorably by 9% of Blacks, and 20% of whites. Isn't that worth mentioning?
Why oh why can't we have a better press corps?
