Don't Touch That Dial! Even if NOTHING is Happening!

Lies, Damned Lies, Statistics and Polls (Donna Brazile) from CNN
"So if the Quinnipac survey doesn't really tell us anything new, why all the hoop and hoopla? In part because the media have become like sports announcers: Even if nothing's happening, they have to make it sound as if something important is -- so don't change channels or you'll miss
something vital. Attention trumps analysis."
