well, as Brokaw put it on Aug 24, it was the latest poll. But actually it was the latest poll that had Obama leading. The poll Brokaw cited was from 2 weeks ago, showing Obama with a 3 point lead. He chose to ignore a poll from a few days ago, with a larger sample size, that actually showed McCain with a 1 point lead. But no, only Fox is that biased.

Didn't Diebold expose these polls, even exit polls, as totally irrelevant?

Then why would Brokaw use them to make his point? Either he'd be biased for using one but not the more recent one with a larger sample, or he'd be an idiot for using irrelevant information AND biased for using the irrelevant information to further his agenda. Take your pick.
