Poll: Most feel WTC construction should go on
This is just another example of how the questions in a poll can guarantee a predetermined outcome.
First of all the poll was taken during the time when only fresh fill was being excavated.
Which means there were no new recoveries while the poll was open.
Let them retake the poll this week when it is expected that considerable remains will be uncovered as they will now be finished with the clean fill.
Why didn't the poll ask the people for their opinion on bringing in JPAC?
Why didn't it ask how they felt about how the mayor is handling the new operation?
Why didn't they ask if the people think that utility and construction workers should be conducting the new searches?
Why didn't they ask how people felt about only 3 rooftops being searched?
Why didn't they ask if people thought that the service road where articles from the WTC have been uncovered should be excavated?
In the interest of fair reporting we ask Newsday to run the poll again and ask these questions as well.
Again we doubt it will happen because the results will surely not be the same.
We also ask Newsday how they picked their participants as we have not heard from any people who were contacted.
We could run a poll as well and just as easily have the results support our position.
On another note about fair reporting of the issues involving the new search:
Did even one paper cover the fact that 3 remains and additional WTC articles were uncovered on Saturday?
We didn't see it.
