Tap tap tappity tap, KLRVU-style.


This really is the gift that keeps on giving, isn't it?

BY THE WAY, the following strikes me as a bit weird. Over at klrvu.com, you read:

Recent Poll Results July 21st, 2008

NEW NATIONAL POLL:
research done for CLC Canada
for their press release click here

But clicking on that link does not take you to CLC's own press release. It takes you instead to the news piece about that poll at right-wing LifeSite News! Why?

The official CLC press release can be read here, so why did KLRVU link instead to a news piece on the topic instead? If it was my polling company and I provided a link that promised to take someone to a group's press release, I really would take readers to that press release, and not to a right-wing news piece describing that press release.

Am I allowed to think that that's horrifically unprofessional behaviour?

Lifesitenews is run by CLC.

That may be, mgs, but people who aren't aware of that will still be confused. Given that the CLC has the press release up under their CLC domain, it still seems wildly inappropriate for the link to take readers to an avowed "news" site.

But maybe I'm just splitting hairs.

I don't think you're splitting hairs -- lifesite isn't the client, it's the client's propaganda filter. CLC has its own page for press releases, and this one is on it. So why not use that page instead?

Anyway, when it comes to these bozos, no hair is too fine to split.

On a humourous note, look at the URL for the press release about the poll at the CLC website:

"Pole"?? CLC, your Freudian slip is showing!

Oops, I just noticed you already have the CLC press release in your post. Sorry CC, half asleep out here!
