I think Obama won. Haha, I love CNN. "46% say Obama won, 39% say Romney won. As you can see, it's neck-and-neck here, very close between the two candidates." My dad and I just started laughing. A 7 point difference is NOT neck and neck. They kept insisting it! It was hilarious!
He may have been making a comparison to the first debate, in which 46% said Romney won, and only 22% said Obama won. Compared to that, the second debate was fairly close.
I do agree though, Obama's performance in the second debate was WAY better than what he did in the first.

Sagar, Fox news IS fair and unbiased like they say, but for some reason all liberals seem to think that its not, and they always use Bill O'reilly, Glen Beck and Hannity as examples, but those are OPINION shows, in which they tell you THEIR opinion. Have you ever just watched the morning news? Or the other non-opinion shows? You should sometime, cause I really doubt you already have.

However, Fox News calls their opinion shows fair and balanced. That is their flaw. Yes, I do agree that the opinion shows are biased, and that's okay, because they are just that. Opinions. However, that does not make it okay for Fox News to call their opinion shows fair and balanced.

This coming from a person who watches Fox News all the time. I'm not ignorant on the subject.

Jack asked for evidence of Romney's lies and I provided it. Nowhere did I make the claim that Obama was angelically honest. They both lie.

But 31 is slightly larger than 12.

Yep, but I don't think the information on that site necessarily counts as unbiased evidence.

And yes, it is. But that could just as easily mean that the conservative site exaggerated less than the liberal one, as that Romney actually lied more.
