What is the Deal With the Other 9%

According to a poll, 9% claim to believe that the media wants John McCain and/or Republicans to get elected.

WTF?

By a margin of 70%-9%, Americans say most journalists want to see Obama, not John McCain, win on Nov. 4. Another 8% say journalists don’t favor either candidate, and 13% say they don’t know which candidate most reporters support.

How could you live in this world and actually believe the mainstream media is trying to get McCain elected?!?

Possibilities: Probabilities:

1) Lying. A good chance of this, since it probably *is* Democrats we’re talking about.

2) Aware that most people are going to correctly identify the media as being in the tank for Democrats, but, realizing that will hurt Democrats chances, is deliberately trying to skew results in order to water down the obviously correct answer that the media is in the tank for Democrats.  I.e., lying. Which, again, is very likely since it is probably Democrats we are talking about.
