Board index Vancouver Forum


Vancouver forum is an open forum which daily sketches the diversity and the commonality of Vancouverites. It is also an online community where you can discover and discuss various aspects of life in Vancouver and the world at large. If you are a visitor or a soon-to-be resident of Vancouver, or simply have an interest in it, you are more than welcome to join the group of Vancouver Forum posters, but know that any questions you may have about the city and its neighborhoods, the quality of life and lifestyle, are likely going to be met with a barrage of insults by some our resident comedians.

If you are a Vancouverite who just stumbled upon these pages, you'd best get the hell out of here before anyone sees you, but if you do decide to join in, for God's sake don't tell them your ethnicity or you may never hear the end of it! Do not be surprised by uncensored and sometimes blatantly stupid, crazy, remarks that shouldn't ever be spoken in private, let alone on a public forum. If that still hasn't deterred you, then you probably have a thick enough skin and a good enough sense of humour to handle this place. Good luck. You're going to need it!

CBC Vote Compass rigged.......

Unread postby Munday » 31 Mar 2011, 04:57

As we knew anything coming from the CBC would be..........

CBC's "Vote Compass" dictates: "Neutral" = Liberal. Rigged Survey Sways the Public

SHows if all the questions are answered one way, neither disagree or agree ... you are a liberal.

Shows if you answer all the questions strongly agree - you are a liberal

SHows if you answer all the questions strongly disagree - you guessed it you are a Liberal.

AND THIS IS TAXPAYER FUNDED NEWS ORGANIZATION THAT SUGGEST THEY ARE NEUTRAL IN THEIR REPORTING


i just wish there was some way "we the people" could put this fucking organization out of business

It's obvious how the designers did this. You start with your position in the middle of the graph. You are given a question that will move you to the right a corresponding number of spaces depending on how strongly you agree with it. Then you are given an opposite question that will move you to the left depending on how strongly you agree with it. Ditto for up and for down.

If you check the same answer for the left question and the right question, they balance each other out, and your position on the graph lands right in the centre.

If you do that for all of the questions, your final position is smack dab in the centre of the graph, and that happens to be closest to the Liberal Party position.

One can debate whether they have accurately positioned the political parties on the graph, but the analysis is simple....... It's just math.

Nobody who is serious about answering the questions to assist them in how to vote is going to answer the same thing for every question. It's not even a realistic scenario because you'd have to keep contradicting yourself. I answered honestly and got an appropriate result. So will everyone who isn't just trying to screw up the test. We are all liberals........my mother will be so proud.

Even NDP Babble'ers trashing it.

Thanks Liberal Broadcasting Corporation. Wonder whatever happened to that bias investigation.
