Of polls and megaphones

CNN is a great news organization peopled by wonderful journalists. Their survey department is also run by fine pollsters. So I really do hate to pick on them, especially for a fault in which they are hardly alone.

But, they are the most current example of a news outlet that has created a huge story out of its own poll, even when its results differ from those of other surveys. [cont.]
