“Anyway, I keep picturing all these little kids playing some game in this big field of rye and all. Thousands of little kids, and nobody's around - nobody big, I mean - except me. And I'm standing on the edge of some crazy cliff. What I have to do, I have to catch everybody if they start to go over the cliff - I mean if they're running and they don't look where they're going I have to come out from somewhere and catch them. That's all I do all day. I'd just be the catcher in the rye and all. I know it's crazy, but that's the only thing I'd really like to be.”

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.
