CNN Poll Nonsense
The lamestream media told you:
According to a CNN/Opinion Research Corp. poll, "By a 51%-to-49% margin, Americans say China is a 'military threat' to the U.S. 70% say China poses an 'economic threat,' while 30% say it does not."
The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:
Confirming reports that reporters have no understanding of math, CNN has released a meaningless poll and used it to fill space where news is supposed to appear.
The American public's beliefs about communist China -- and especially its military capabilities or intentions -- are almost entirely a function of what the news media spoon-feeds them. Those beliefs have only a marginal relationship to what really occurs in world affairs, and is no rational basis for formulating opinions on the level of military threat the communist Chinese pose. Asking for such opinions is as meaningful as gathering fairy dust. Opinions expressed under such conditions are vapid nonsense, not worth the paper they are printed upon.
A researched report on the economic or military threats posed to us by the communists in China would have taken work, and did not run.
