FR Report: CNN Hires Clinton-Backer's Firm for '08 Polling
But today comes some interesting investigative reporting at Free Republic, billed as an FR Exclusive. As reported by FReeper Howlin, CNN has recently signed a deal to provide poll data for the '08 prez contest with a polling firm controlled by an avid Clinton supporter.
Free Republic article here.
As reported at FR, CNN announced that the polling firm, Opinion Research Corporation, "will be a key part of giving viewers the accurate and relevant information they demand to help them make decisions."
Howlin goes on to state that the new owner of Opinion Research, InfoUSA, is "controlled by a hard-core Clintonista named Vinod Gupta." Gupta is reported to have established in his native India the "Bill Clinton Science and Technology Center" and "The Hillary Rodham Clinton Mass Communication Center."
The article contains numerous photos of the Clintons posing with Gupta and members of his family, including the one shown here. I've set it forth in larger-than-NB-normal size to preserve the caption's legibility. As you'll note, Gupta brags of his access to Hillary.
You don't suppose any of this could affect the objectivity of polling data CNN presents when it comes to '08 race, do you?
