Something very strange just happened on the CTV site.
Dark Blue Tory had posted a link to CTV clearly stating that "...some Canadians are unhappy with the Conservative position on the Mideast..."
and in the same article:
"Polls suggest a majority of Canadians don't support his position."
Dark Blue Tory asked, "Which one is it?"
That seemed like such a good question that I fired off an email to CTV at 11:38 and also asked for the relevant polls references.
Just a short while ago, I checked back on the CTV site. Amazing! Instant rewrite!
Now the same link yields this statement, "The prime minister has been under fire for his support of Israel in its battle with Hezbollah in Lebanon, and a new poll suggests 45 per cent of Canadians don't support his position..." (12:03 p.m.)
The first statement remains the same.
So, was this a coincidence? Was someone at CTV responsible for yet another example of shoddy reporting, or was it some kind of deliberate agenda?
Biased polling is one thing. Biased or sloppy reporting of polls is way over the top.
