CNBC polls - one should not disagree with the mighty Mr. Wastler

Well, this week, CNBC hosted a GOP debate in Dearborn, Michigan. As usually happens following such debates, an online poll was posted by CNBC. When the poll figures represented 75% in favor of Ron Paul having won the debate, Allen Wastler at CNBC called for the poll to be removed from the internet. His rationale for this can be found by following the link below.

A friend sent me the following note. I appreciate the situational irony that he points out here, and recommend reading the open letter that he has enclosed the link to. Situational irony occurs in literature when the audience understands something that a character fails to understand. - Allan

Thought you might be interested in this open letter to Ron Paul supporters from the CNBC managing editor who took down an online poll after the last Republican debate after Ron Paul had 75% of the votes.
If you believe that the mainstream media is delibrately covering Romney, Guilini, Hilary, and Obama instead of all the candidates, you will find irony in his second to last sentence: "When a well-organized and committed "few" can throw the results of a system meant to reflect the sentiments of "the many," I get a little worried." Mr. Wastler, I get a little worried, too.
