This Day In Snookland....Which Poll Is Which?


Yesterday I noted that it was crickets all around when it came to proMedia reporting on the latest poll from Justason that shows no narrowing between the Dippers and the BC Liberal Party in the upcoming general election.

I commented on this given how much stenography and wurlitzering there was regarding the last result from Mustel which, essentially, showed the same thing but was instead trumpeted as a narrowing.

Specifically, by a particular VSun writer.

I then left a link to to a google news search string based on "justason poll british columbia" to demonstrate the crickets chirping yesterday, Wednesday.


Today, Thursday, the crickets are hiding.

Because, interestingly, the very same VSun writer is now reporting on a completely different aspect of the Justason poll that is only peripherally concerned with the General Election.

And has nothing to do with the spread between the Dippers and the Liberals.

Alise will have Barb Justason on SUNTV today to talk about this poll, and I suspect, to tell us why it gets less attention (via the twittersphere :-) - Merv

Thanks for the heads-up Merv.
