Today we find exactly how hopelessly skewed the mainstream media is.* Ace was commenting on a recent CNN poll that showed Obama and Romney in a tie - with party affiliation at D+11. Which is crazy; you'd have to have Democrat turnout at levels higher even than 2008, and at the same time have Independents splitting 2:1 in favour of Romney.
The polls and news reports are wrong, we know that. Today's the day we find out how wrong.
Update: Less wrong than I might have hoped, based on early returns. Mmf.
Update: The results are in, and while the polls may have been wrong, they weren't that wrong. It's going to be a long four years.
Meanwhile, in Australia.... Uh, we had a horse race. With actual horses.
* Is? Are? Stupid language.

Are. Media is the plural of medium. Newspapers, TV, radio, I'm sure I've bored you by now, heh.

the plural of medium.

Latinate plurals become singularized in English over time. And that is what is happening right now with media. While some will get uppity about it they are fighting a lost cause. Get used to it folks.
PS.Not falling for the preview trap again.

Pixy: I did that on purpose; I'm glad you've internalized it.

Alternatively: "the word media is the plural form of the word medium."
I know I must be covered with one of those.
