The McKnight Report
As critical thinkers, we are all very interested in keeping ourselves up to date about the latest political information. But what to do with all of the information we are receiving about the political opinion polls? They are everywhere--you cannot go five minutes without someone claiming to know what America is thinking. But the polls are also all over the map—each one is saying something slightly different, and some of them are saying things we don’t even want to know! At The McKnight Report, we decided to investigate! Our latest show delves into the murky depths of political opinion polls, so that we know what the polls are based on, and how they are created. If someone is going to tell us what we are thinking, we need to know who they are and how they operate. We need to know whether these polls can truly predict behavior, and equally important--whether they can also affect behavior. Knowledge is power, and we want to be well-armed so that we can make our own decisions.
You can watch The McKnight Report on Prince George’s County Public Television on Tuesdays at 6:00pm. If you have Verizon Fios, please watch us on Channel 42. If you have Comcast, please watch us on Channel 76. Either way, please watch!
