I am curious to know why your paper would run a poll, and then fake the results. On Feb 3th you ran a poll asking readers which brand of football they found to be more interesting, The CFL or the NFL.
Just before removing the poll the results showed
CFL 673 votes for 57%
NFL 504 votes for 42%
Today you are reporting that
CFL 991 votes for 40%
NFL 1162 votes for 47%
Not sure 315 votes for 12%
The not sure option was not an option yet you report that 12% of those who voted chose that option. You changed just enough of the votes to claim that the NFL is preferred!
Why bother do run the poll and then when you do not receive the results you want.....Print more favourable results.
It is well known that the Star favours, and would like to see an NFL team in Toronto but to print lies in order to justify their views has brought journalism to a new low.
I know that it is simply a poll but if you do not have the scruples to print the true results, can anything else you print be trusted?
I can no longer trust anything that you print and I am quite sure that your advertisers will feel the same way.
Hi I believe one of my editors has already been in touch with you. There were two polls. One in news. One in sports. The data was collected separately and reported accurately. Thanks for your interest.Now! Should I reply and tell them that its SUPER BULL
