Here at TPC we always try our best to write up stories as accurately as possible, bring you the facts, along with commentary, but there are times when we screw up. We regret those times, and try to set the record straight as soon as possible. But there are going to be those inevitable awkward posts in which we mess up.
The other day, we posted the very same poll that Rachel Maddow refers to in this video. We corrected it when a Commenter pointed out the error, but then we noticed that Rachel, Ed Schultz, Political Wire, Steve Benen, and others were using the same poll well after we pointed out our mistake.
Because all of those heavyweights referenced the same CBS page, I kept checking back, thinking that our link would magically lead to this year’s results, and did an extensive search trying to find a current CBS poll, but without success.
Even though we did put up the wrong information (and made the correction), it was somehow comforting to see that so many of our favorites made the same goof. Hey, we’re only human.
