Browsing some local news I was met with a “How do you rate our site?” poll question on the state owned Newsnet homepage. The answers to choose from: ‘Excellent’, ‘Good’ and ‘Not bad’.
Talk about taking a positive attitude to far; we know we rock and we won’t let you say we don’t!
No prizes for guessing which option has most votes, and none for interpreting what the votes really meant. ‘Excellent’ on one end and “Very Poor” on the other would get Newsnet some free and fair results. You’ll notice the “pollid=1” results url betrays this poll’s age; it’s been running since the website came online years ago! Newsnet, please!
