Chris Cuomo, with the institutional might of CNN at his disposal, turned to a non-scientific Twitter poll in an attempt to discover who should be believed by coming forward: Judge Brett Kavanaugh or his accuser, Christine Basey Ford?

But what’s the point of this? It’s not scientific at all and tells us nothing:

FWIW, at the time of the publication of this post, Kavanaugh was winning, but the poll answers he lists don’t even match up to the question he asked:

Also of note, Cuomo is doing the whole “just asking questions” thing and not telling us what he thinks his non-scientific poll means. It sounds like he’s interpreting it as people, in general, don’t believe the accuser. But it could just as easily mean that based on all of the information out there, people believe Kavanaugh over Ford. Or it could mean it’s just people trolling Cuomo and checking “Him” to see what happens.

Which is why there is no reason for a CNN anchor who is fighting “fake news” to, you know, create fake news of his own.
