Zogby And The Arab Connection
Via a GoogleNews search for something totally unrelated, I stumbled upon an editorial entitled, “Zogby And The Arab Connection” in something called The Post Chronicle by a Michael J. Gaynor. The money part:
Are polls manipulated for political purposes?
Does that thought shock you? It should not.
James Zogby is a prominent pollster.
A Republican, he’s not. A Democrat, he is.
A supporter of Israel, he’s not. A support of “Palestine,” he is. (He interviewed the late Yasser Arafat on his television show.)
In addition to the Yoda-esque cadence, there’s a wee problem with this: James Zogby ain’t a pollster, prominent or otherwise. That would be John Zogby. His brother.
UPDATE: I posted a comment at the source before posting this blog entry. Several paragraphs into the piece, now, there’s recognition that James and John are brothers but there’s no “Correction/Update” notice. And the piece now makes no sense whatever as written, since the premise seems to shift at precisely the point of the mention that John is the guy with the polling company.
