If folks want to get excited that "their team" won a subset survey, far be it from me to pour cold water on that charged celebration. Some of us find it offensive that ANY NEWS organization either deals with ratings or considers them in their decision making. That pollutes the quality of the news that we receive. Fox delivers a subset of news to the demographic that says they like Fox and X number of other variables. CNN delivers a subset of news to the demographic that says they like CNN and X number of other variables. And everyone loses.
That spin made me dizzy. Bear you are cool!

Outstanding! Now apply that same logic to your opinion of a news story about an apple and then the following story about an orange. Apparently, the second story is really not about an orange at all. It's another apple!

We've made great progress today but your hour's up. Let's schedule another session for next week.

Now I understand why they check your ID when you attempt to make a purchase in the local stores.

No agreement required. The data speaks for itself.
