Daily Kos Suing Its Former Pollster

Daily Kos is suing Research 2000, its former pollster. Daily Kos founder Markos Moulitsas made the announcement on the liberal blog today.

According to Moulitsas, several statistics experts examined poll data compiled by Research 2000, and these individuals concluded that the results were fabricated. Moulitsas says that Research 2000 defrauded Daily Kos.

Dissenting Justice has also criticized Research 2000 poll results. For example, in February 2010, Daily Kos/Research 2000 produced a survey that purports to demonstrate extremism among Republicans. The results, however, are flawed in several respects. See Major Flaw with Daily Kos Poll on Republican Ideology: No Context.

For those of us who avoid Daily Kos, the "major flaw" link above goes to another dissenting justice article about this topic and not to Daily Kos.

F. U. Kos.

Alessandro: Thanks for the heads up to Kos-averse readers! LOL.

Ha! Ha!

Alessandro just made my day. I'm not one that avoids the Daily Kos, but his tip is just humorous.

Honestly, even for Kos-averse readers, the Kos article explaining the ongoing catfight between Joe Scarborough and Markos Moulitsas is worth the read.

I got banned from DK during the Democratic primaries.

Seriously!?!?

Why?

You will absolutely LOVE the poetic justice in him being banned from MSNBC then, huh?
