Jimmy Kimmel…decided to send a camera crew out on the streets of Hollywood on Tuesday afternoon, four hours prior to the presidential debate. Kimmel was skeptical of not only how much effect these debates have, but also if people actually watch them at all. He sent his crew out before the debate actually took place, yet his on-the-street interviewer asked people if they had watched the debate “last night.”
Kimmel’s suspicions were confirmed. The event itself is largely irrelevant and has zero influence on what people actually say. In fact, if Kimmel’s video montage is representative of the group of interviewees as a whole (not one of them said that Romney “won”), what they say to the camera has much more to do with what they think the interviewer wants them to say, rather than what they actually think; even to the point of flat-out lying about their favorite parts and that they “watched the entire debate.” It makes for great late-night television, but it makes for even greater social commentary about the role of the media on people’s behaviors and stated public beliefs. It is a solemn reminder of the unscientific nature of polls and surveys.
Democrats are nonobjective liars.
