The media has already firmly established that there is no degree to which it won’t go when it comes to protecting Joe Biden. However, the latest fake poll by CBS was too much for some, including the intrepid “fact checker’ Snopes.
Biden was trotted out to give a scaled-down State Of The Union speech to a sparsely attended “joint session” of Congress on Wednesday. CBS conducted a survey that night that was thoroughly dishonest even by their own abysmal standards.
The nation’s 46th president laid out his ambitious agenda to fundamentally transform America for the worse, while effectively putting his government on a war footing with supporters of former President Donald J. Trump. CBS touted the poll claiming that a whopping 85 percent approved of Biden’s speech.
The fraudulent poll led to much liberal rejoicing:

But the devil was in the details and CBS was caught blatantly misleading America by relying on a sample of “viewers”, which was overwhelmingly stacked by Democrats. Republicans comprised a mere 169 of over 1,000 respondents.
You know that it was bad when the normally reliable Snopes issues a rare rebuke of the media’s slanted propaganda.
Remember that "people who watched the speech" does not mean "all Americans." https://t.co/FGt3AdFeea

According to Snopes, “On April 29, 2021, the day after U.S. President Joe Biden delivered his first speech to a joint session of congress, a message started to circulate on social media claiming that 85% of Americans had approved of the president’s remarks.”
85% of Americans approved of what President Biden had to say in his address to the Nation. It’s time for Republicans in Congress, who stand for nothing, to get out of the way and let the majority rule.

“We don’t know what percentage of Americans approved of Biden’s speech yet, but it likely wasn’t 85%.” Snopes added.
The verdict was then rendered on CBS, “This stat comes from a report by CBS News who reported that 85% of viewers, not Americans, approved of the speech. As the audience for Biden’s speech last night likely skewed to the left, this statistic does not represent “all Americans.” CBS News reported that 54% of the people who watched the speech were Democrats, 25% were independents, and 18% were Republicans. Of those people, 85% approved of the speech.”
But with Snopes, Democrats, and their operatives having each other’s backs, the “fact checker” quickly made excuses for CBS:
“CBS News director of elections and surveys Anthony Salvanto specifically mentioned that the audience last night was made up mostly of Democrats when he talked about this statistic. Here’s a transcript from the CBSN show ‘Red & Blue'”
“We have some new polling. What we did was we talked to a representative sample of the audience nationwide who watched the speech and they liked what they heard. We got 85% approving of the speech. Now, I’ve got to add right off the bat here, that as is typical with presidential speeches, a lot of his own partisans made up the bulk of the audience.”
It just doesn’t get any more obvious that the entire media is in the bag for Biden between the Democrats conducting hoax polls through their bought-and-paid-for mouthpiece CBS. It really should have Americans asking serious questions about how much of everything else that the network reports is constructed of falsehoods.
This is not a good look for CBS, only weeks after their big “60 Minutes” hit piece on Florida Governor Ron DeSantis was exposed as being deceptively edited to the extreme.

For anyone who may have believed that the media would ocassionally start telling the truth once they got rid of Trump, it is now abundantly clear that it just isn’t going to happen.
