This sort of analysis is why the laughable poll results from the Los Angeles Times this weekend concerning Carly Fiorina and Meg Whitman ought to be ignored by handicappers. The NPR-like partisan journalists at the Times didn’t disclose their sample in the story about the polling for a reason. Their record of spinning polling in the ten days before an election leaves their reputation for fairness as bankrupt as the Tribune Company that owns the paper.
One of the reasons California is on the cliff of bankruptcy is because its big media and especially the Times went so hard left so long ago, to the detriment of reporting and of course profitability. Neither the state nor the paper will return to health until there is a major culture change within the leadership of both.
