New Live Poll Allows Pundits To Pander To Viewers In Real Time

Leave it to The Onion to once again brilliantly satirize TV media.  Of course, it might be hard to call something satire when it is probably so close to the actual state of things.  Are there any truly serious television news/political shows? 
Polling seems to really have changed media and politics for the worse.  Here’s a column that shares that sentiment.  

News organizations are supposed to provide information that holds government accountable and helps the citizenry make informed decisions on Election Day. Polls turn that mission on its head: they inform people and government of what the people already think. It’s time to do away with them.

Also, think of every candidate that a poll “revealed” wasn’t popular enough to win.  Sounds like a self-fulling prophecy to me.
