The Media Needs to Get Off the Poll

By Bill Maher

I appreciate you all in the media telling me what the polls were every day — who was up two points in which poll, and who was down one in another, and in every race, and for the last couple months. But this is something I can do by going to any number of polling websites. Or I can call Nate Silver. Because that’s what he’s for.

Your job is to report on the issues facing the candidates, and to press the candidates on the issues they avoid discussing. Maybe in 2016 you can try doing that job.

That is all.
