The race in the 7th Congressional District between Republican Tim Walberg and democrat Mark Schauer continues to be one of the hottest in the nation.
A new poll reported the race as very tight, with Walberg holding only a slim 43-40 lead. But there are serious questions about the methodology of the poll. A previous poll on the race was skewed by using the worthless "biography" methodology, but was widely reported in the media without clearly pointing this out.
Then there is this absurd blog entry by mainstream media reporter Susan Demas. It calls Rep. Bill Sali, Republican of Idaho, "Tim Walberg's best friend" without ever giving any evidence for this assertion. Her whole case against Sali is based on unflattering quotes from his political rivals. In one of the quotes, Mike Simpson says that he would like to throw Sali out a window, which Demas seems to think reflects badly on Sali, rather than Simpson. This is the sort of garbage that MSM types blame bloggers for.
