Media makes concerted effort to suppress evidence of public disagreement with Obama policies

On February 2, 2009, Gallup released the results of a poll that indicated the level of support Obama had on various issues. The results are below:

As you can see, Obama's most unpopular decisions to date are the decisions to close Guantanamo Bay and the allowing of U.S. funding to provide abortions overseas.

Here's a rundown of the major media outlets coverage of this poll:

CBS: Zilch

ABC: Nada

NBC: Are you kiddin' me?

CNN: No can do!

Even Fox News missed it apparently.

But this is a significant poll to note, given the ongoing narrative that Obama likes to remind everyone that he won whenever someone poses opposition, under the false assumption that everyone is on board with all that he decides, hook line and sinker.

For the networks, this poll does not fit that story, so it's better off ignored...because we wouldn't want to upset the Obamessiah, since he won and all...

Well, I wouldn't know about this stuff right now if weren't for this blog! Been to busy cleaning up after a sick baby to listen to my talk radio. Thanks for posting!
