On his Tuesday program, Rush Limbaugh called the Washington Post’s revelation that its own battleground-state polling used questionable metrics a sign of “genuine corruption.”
The conservative talk show host said the narrative that Romney is trailing in Ohio is being used to interfere with the outcome of the presidential election.
“This goes beyond simple incompetence or media malpractice,” Limbaugh said. “This is genuine corruption. We find out that — and from The Washington Post’s own pollster — that they based last Friday’s poll of Romney being [down] 10, 11, whatever it was — those three swing states — on 160 people with a margin of error of plus or minus eight. I’m not kidding you.”
“It’s important that you know about it because it’s — as I say, this is corruption,” he said. “I mean, to run that poll and try to present it as something serious — there’s no doubt here this has gone way beyond just bias. These people have thrown in with a political party. They’ve thrown in with a political party to the extent that they do not report news. They are journalists. They will not report news that is in any way they think harmful to detrimental to their side.”
