CNN Has a Liberal Bias? HA! Check Out This Piece Of Blantant Right-Wing Bias.

by Ben Hoffman

The headline of this CNN blog from the CNN Deputy Political Director Paul Steinhauser reads

CNN Poll: Half the country disagrees with Obama on issues

It continues with: “For the first time since he took over in the White House, Americans don’t see eye to eye with President Barack Obama on the important issues, according to a new national poll.”

That sounds bad, right? A lot of bloggers are running with that part of the article as proof that people don’t support the president. But the rest of the article shows that people actually approve of Obama’s performance:

But the CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey does indicate that a majority approve of how Obama’s handling his duties as president.

[…]

Fifty-five percent of those questioned say they approve of how Obama’s handling his duties,

[…]

The poll also suggests that two out of three Americans say Obama has the qualities a president should have,

[…]

But seven in 10 are proud that a U.S. president won the prestigious award. (the Nobel Peace Prize)

  1. Here’s the exact wording of the article:

    “But the CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey does indicate that a majority approve of how Obama’s handling his duties as president.

    According to the poll, which was released Tuesday, 48 percent of people questioned say that they agree with Obama on the issues that matter most to them, with 51 percent saying no. That’s a switch from April, when 57 percent said they agreed with the president on important issues, with 41 percent disagreeing”.

    In the first paragraph it’s said a majority approve …
    In the next sentence it says 48% agree with Obama and 51% disagree …

    *Now I’m not the sharpest knife in the drawer, but isn’t 51% greater than 48% ???

    Concerning the Nobel Peace Prize: it actually says: 7 out of 10 Americans are proud that a U.S. president won it … but “Most Americans, 56 percent, don’t approve of the Norwegian Nobel Committee’s decision to award the Nobel Peace Prize to BARACK OBAMA, and only a third believe that Obama has done enough to deserve the prize”.

    The trouble with alot of folks is their too lazy to read the whole thing. Obama has fallen to under 50% approval in 10 months on the job, and that my friend is a fact.

  2. Majority disagrees with Obama on issues. That is what it says. None of the highlighted quotes contradict that statement.
