Very biasedly. You're the fool if you think mainstream media isn't biased.

Mainstream media has its biases. But the OP is quoting the hysterically laughable infowars which is just plain nuts. In doing he is accusing a joutnalist of quoting a poll of bias when all he is doing is quoting a poll. If you think Breitbart, Inforwars, The Drudge Report and assorted cranks and crackpots on t'internet are more reliable that professional journalists then the problem is not the MSM the problem is you.

The "professional journalists" are as biased as the likes of Infowars and Brietbart. No, I'm not the problem, thicks like you are, appealing to the bogus authority of professional journalists who might as well be reporting for the DNC.

I'd trust Breitbart and Infowars before CNN.

He is reporting a poll. He didn't carry out the poll. See the difference?

But he doesn't just report it, he editorialises, he says it is silly and it is a conspiracy theory.
That it is silly and a conspiracy theory are his personal opinions not facts.
He presents these personal opinions of his as facts.
He should have prefaced these comments with "In my opinion....".
That he doesn't and instead presents these partial opinions as if they are established facts makes him a textbook example of a fake news merchant.
