GREAT POLLS OF OUR TIME  4:19 pm December 10, 2009

Something Is Wrong When 81% Of Fox Newsers Are Voting ‘Yes’ To This Question

by Jim Newell

Even more “win” for Fox News, which is so incompetent with polls at this point that it cannot get its own yes-or-no questions correct. DO YOU LOVE OBAMA? NO, I LOVE HIM. [Fox News]

I chose “I’m not sure”. I GUESS I AM A RACIST.

Neoyorquino December 10, 2009 at 4:23 pm

Are you, as a Fox News viewer, clinically insane? Check one:

1) Yes
2) No
3) Mango Chutney

comicbookguy December 10, 2009 at 4:24 pm

They need to add I GUESS I AM A RACIST as an option on all their polls.

So what do 193% of Fox viewers really think?

NJB December 10, 2009 at 4:26 pm

This is what happens when English is your first language, but you’re a fucking idiot.

ZOO December 10, 2009 at 4:26 pm

I love that it disclaims, “This is not a scientific poll.” O RLY?

Joshua Norton December 10, 2009 at 4:27 pm

So does Fox take in all the interns you guys turn down or something? ‘Cause, c’mon, they can’t actually be paying anyone to do this shit.

Can they?

shadowMark December 10, 2009 at 4:27 pm

[re=475944]comicbookguy[/re]: They should add “Done, but with errors on page” to everything they display.

Extemporanus December 10, 2009 at 4:27 pm

[re=475940]SmutBoffin[/re]: “FOX News: We’re not sure, and you are too.”

shortsshortsshorts December 10, 2009 at 4:28 pm

Get the Whore Diamonds out of the closet. Whoever found this deserves at least 2.

Minnie Mean December 10, 2009 at 4:28 pm

Cake or death?!

Hamster December 10, 2009 at 4:29 pm

Does Obama know you’re gay?

BadKitty December 10, 2009 at 4:29 pm

Crazy like a fox, they say.

t_rax December 10, 2009 at 4:29 pm

They gave MLK and Nelson Mandela as examples so people could say, “See? I’m not racist!”

shadowMark December 10, 2009 at 4:30 pm

Shouldn’t every post related to Obama be tagged with the “dragons” tag from now on?

BobTheBuilder December 10, 2009 at 4:30 pm

They did it on purpose: now they can spin it any way they like.

SayItWithWookies December 10, 2009 at 4:34 pm

What’s really surprising is that 35% voted “Somewhat Likely.”

queeraselvis v 2.0 December 10, 2009 at 4:35 pm

Why did I read the comments on the Fuck Snooze site? I feel like I need a nice hot shower and a brain transplant.

slappypaddy December 10, 2009 at 4:35 pm

exquisitely like a pretzel bent, no safe words in that composition

madtowngooner December 10, 2009 at 4:35 pm

There has to be a better word than retard to describe these morans. At least it wasn’t a Chyron mistake.

sezme December 10, 2009 at 4:36 pm

Where’s the Kissenger-love?

Come here a minute December 10, 2009 at 4:36 pm

I am not sure if I have the moral authority to judge Obama, Schweitzer, King, and Mandela. Fox News, please vote for me.

magic titty December 10, 2009 at 4:37 pm

The word ‘ZOINKS’ seems appropriate here.

hoosiermama December 10, 2009 at 4:38 pm

[re=475963]BobTheBuilder[/re]: I, on the other hand, prefer to take the less cynical view that they’re simply morons.

Texan Bulldoggette December 10, 2009 at 4:40 pm

Ha ha ha…those dumb asses still haven’t fixed the wording yet, either. The comments are priceless–what are Wonkette commenters doing on Foxnews.com? (I couldn’t read too many but none of those geniuses showed any confusion about the wording.)

cooter December 10, 2009 at 4:40 pm

[re=475952]shortsshortsshorts[/re]: Just 2? I thought I was actually getting to decide whether Obama deserved the Nobel Peace Prize. Turns out it was just a survey.

RoscoePColtraine December 10, 2009 at 4:41 pm

[re=475971]queeraselvis v 2.0[/re]: Or a good douching with a bhut jolokia enema. At least, that’s what it’ll take for me. And I’m not into pain.

rikitikitavi December 10, 2009 at 4:41 pm

All this time I just assumed that Fox’s fuckups like this were just plausibly deniable ways of attacking Democrats. But when they actually produce a poll with the question “Does Obama Deserve the Nobel Peace Prize?” and 80% respond yes, well, that’s proof that their fuckups are the result of sheer fucking incompetence.

But, still, I’m going to go around saying that 80% of Fox News readers believe Obama deserves the Nobel Peace Prize.

Oldskool December 10, 2009 at 4:44 pm

Yes, I will not vote for him because he is the best president ever. No, he cannot lead this country because we’re not worthy of such a great leader.

I’m starting to get the hang of it. Tomorrow I’m watching Fox.

Escape Goat Nation December 10, 2009 at 4:45 pm

GJguigugu hui etr frtdr? Oggyy fsrt, gyf frhy. Pgfyutg fgyugi Gwegfyhhi;?

Oh yeah Big Time!

You Betcha!

SmutBoffin December 10, 2009 at 4:46 pm

“OBAMA CAN SPEAK PRETTY WORDS, BUT HE IS A COMMUNIST OUT TO DESTROY AMERICA. I DO NOT TRUST HIM. Vote NO to government run insurance. LIKE HE IS REMAKING AMERICA FOR HIS DICTATORSHIP; I.E.; HEALTH REFORM….WE WILL ALL BE SLAVES AND SURFS IF THIS THINGS GOES THRU … IS THAT “PEACEFUL?”

Okay, which one of you is this?

“What a joke. This was done as a political ploy to weaken the US.”

Huh?

“The nobel peace prize has been given to liars like Al Gore (Climate-gate) and terrorists like Yassir Arafat (Oslo Accords, which he had no intention of keeping). Why shouldn’t it be given to an incompetent like Obama? The entire Nobel program is a farce. Remember the scientists who claimed they had worked out a cold fusion process? Later it was exposed as a fraud. The literature prizes are given to writers whose work no one reads. I’ll bet Chavez or Ahmadinejad gets one next.”

Yeah, those guys won a Nobel for cold fusion. I remember that. And what writers would you recommend, you illiterate dumbass?

“WHAT A FARCE! WE NEED A “NOBULL PEACE PRIZE” FREE FROM POLITICAL CORRECTNESS AND PARTISAN POLITICS, BUT THAT IS NOT GOING TO HAPPEN. THE LEFT HAS CONTROL OF THE MEDIA, ACADEMIA, CONGRESS, NEA, AARP, AND CERTAIN CHURCH DENOMINATIONS AND WE HAVE OURSELVES TO THANK FOR THIS.”

Ugh.

bluemoose December 10, 2009 at 4:46 pm

If you read the sentence, it says that Obama said his accomplishments are slight compared to others, and then asks if we agree with that assessment. So if you read that it makes sense, but the fact that they posed the question again means it makes no sense… Banana.

Paul Tardy December 10, 2009 at 4:46 pm

Did POTUS Obama make this statement: “For make no mistake: Evil does exist in the world. A non-violent movement could not have halted Hitler’s armies.”

Yes, it was just like POTUS George W Bush said it.

No, it was POTUS Barrack H Obama.

Not sure, but it was Barrack H Obama.

FlipOffResearch December 10, 2009 at 4:54 pm

I made this cartoon – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QS06Ky3D0TM – to explain why Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize.

RoscoePColtraine December 10, 2009 at 4:58 pm

I can haz cheezburger? job at FOX newws?

Escape Goat Nation December 10, 2009 at 5:00 pm

Yes. Obama deserves it because he hates our troops.

No. Obama does not deserve it because he hates America.

Not Sure. I don’t know if he deserves it but he’s a Nazi.

Tonight on The Factor: Bill O’Reilly breaks down the results of our poll that show 120% of Americans believe That Obama is a Nazi that hate’s our troops and America.

The Little Rock December 10, 2009 at 5:03 pm

Does this mean that the average Faux News poll taker is literate?

1. Yes, compared to regulars on cnn.com these people can’t read at a third grade level.

2. No, after reading and re-reading this question they believe Faux News is the only media outlet with the literary capability to craft a question tricky enough to make liberals answer “no.”

3. Palin/Cheney 2012 (gag)

[re=475997]SmutBoffin[/re]: Well, Shorts is up and moving around, so my guess is that he’s the one that’s been facilitating the converation over there….

DC Hates Me December 10, 2009 at 5:26 pm

Compared to Mother Jesus Martin Luther God, he is unworthy of the award. But compared to Yassir Arafat, Menachem Begin or Alfred Nobel, sure, he can haz peace prize.

AxmxZ December 10, 2009 at 5:30 pm

Is FOX a genuine news service?

A. Yes, it’s a ridiculously inept propaganda machine!
B. No, it’s not a genuine news service by any stretch of the imagination.
C. I’m too drunk/inbred to answer.

EarBucket December 10, 2009 at 5:32 pm

Oddly, the second option sums up my opinion on the matter almost perfectly.

BMK December 10, 2009 at 6:28 pm

Obviously this made sense on teh charts.

grevillea December 10, 2009 at 6:44 pm

Yes, I could disagree less but don’t remember to ambiguously never contradict myself! Literally!

“Donrod: I agree with ‘Fair&balancedmyass’ but I will say Obama is the worst President ever. A retarted monkey could be better. And don’t remember his so-called wife hates the USA. I say go to hail .” http://www.thefoxnation.com/sarah-palin/2009/12/10/palin-likes-obamas-nobel-speech

Advocatus_Diaboli December 10, 2009 at 6:46 pm

jeffsusan from South Carolina comments: The only thing he has done is put this country deeper into dept!

I couldn’t possibly snark on that to make it funnier.

grevillea December 10, 2009 at 6:57 pm

Everyone knows Albert Schweitzer was an inadequate black man.

The Station Manager December 10, 2009 at 6:59 pm

DO YOU LOVE OBAMA? NO, I LOVE HIM.

This literally made me shoot beer out of my nose.

RoscoePColtraine December 10, 2009 at 7:19 pm

A basic command of the English language is becoming elitist.

DustinXP December 10, 2009 at 8:18 pm

Fact: 81% of fox news viewers have no idea who Albert Schweitzer is.

hotdog December 10, 2009 at 8:33 pm

Yes, we have no bananas.

leaveskoalrebelalone December 10, 2009 at 9:22 pm

give tiger woods the ‘piece’ prize. yes or no.

edgydrifter December 10, 2009 at 9:34 pm

I did not see “HITLER!” in any of the choices, so this poll cannot be valid.

depraved indifference engine December 10, 2009 at 9:40 pm

Damn, they fixed it. But they won’t let me comment, because apparently “87801″ is not a valid zip code. The error message says that a valid US zip code must have *five* digits, not 193.

FarkTard December 10, 2009 at 10:06 pm

They fixed it but they did not reset the results. If you’re looking for atrocities, switching the questions without resetting the results is greater.

Daveislikelol December 10, 2009 at 10:17 pm

Fucking up an Fauxnews online poll: That’s a firein’

AnnieGetYourFun December 10, 2009 at 10:38 pm

Yes we can’t!

gradgrind December 10, 2009 at 11:55 pm

Oblivious to any distinction between the Nobel comittee and the local Rotary, a leading Foxface commenter wonders, “Is this the first time the Peace Prize ever been awarded to a marxist?” Let me answer that question with another question:

Is this the first time a Foxhole has asked an easy-to-research question he’s too lazy to answer for himself?

Highlights here:

2008 – Martti Ahtisaari, Social Democrat former president of Finland.
2007 – Al Gore. Not a marxist, but no Fox commenter would take my word for it.
1990 – Mikhail Gorbachev, duh!
1987 – Oscar Arias Sánchez, social democrat.
1983 – Lech Walesa – commie! trade unionist! And possibly (this is a matter of controversy) an informant for Poland’s communits government back in the day. Workaday marxism is for pussies.
1982 – Alva Myrdal, Swedish Social Democrat
1973 – Le Duc Tho, commie who had to share his prize w/ that peacenik Kissinger.
1931 – The oddest couple of winners, hands down. Jane Addams campaigned for the Progressive Party, had girlfriends, lived in Chicago: a hell-bound trifecta. She had to go halvesies on the prize with Nicholas Murray Butler, who ran an Ivy League college while pursuing his true calling as a vicious white-power Christianist. Focks and Freinds can debate this one ’til they reach 120% agreement.
1927 – Ferdinand Buisson, “academic, educational bureaucrat, Protestant pastor, pacifist and Socialist politician,” per Wikipedia. What part of that would Jeezis hate most?
1926 – Aristide Briand, leader of the French Socialists, founder of trade unions.
1925 – Sir Austen Chamberlain, “junior Whip of the Liberal Unionists” — Wonketteers will be relieved but unsurprised to learn that this British S&M cabal was a Conservative party enclave.
1922 – Fridtjof Nansen – finally, a monarchist! In heaven as I write, probably making jokes about Kenyans.
1921 – Hjalmar Branting, Swedish Social Democrat.
1913 – Henri La Fontaine, Socialist member of the Senate. Of Belgium, but it still counts.

“Even more “win” for Fox News, which is so incompetent with polls at this point that it cannot get its own yes-or-no questions correct.”

Oh, you don’t think they got it correct? I think they knew exactly what they were doing…

TGY December 11, 2009 at 8:41 am

It takes sheer genius of a very specific sort to create a butterfly pole on the intarwebs.

Needs more pie chart.

MissTheHill December 11, 2009 at 10:33 am

“WE WILL ALL BE SLAVES AND SURFS”? Dude, sounds gnarly. I didn’t know that wave-riding was part of health care reform.

While we all have to laugh at the excrement coming out of Faux, the sobering, terrifying, and bat shit crazy fact is that so many Muhrikans–sadly, my relatives included–have their sole source of national and international news and information from this rat hole of a television network and take what it says as gospel!
