Today CNN announced that "The CNN Poll will become the CNN/Opinion Research Corporation Poll" -

Press release - CNN and Opinion Research Announce Formal Polling Partnership

PRINCETON, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Opinion Research Corporation, a leading provider of global market research and consulting services, today announced the establishment of a formal polling partnership with CNN, one of the world's most respected and trusted sources for news and information. The CNN Poll will become the CNN/Opinion Research Corporation Poll.

"Opinion Research Corporation's reputation for independent, objective analysis and its excellent reputation in the industry make the firm the ideal polling partner for CNN," said Sam Feist, CNN's Political Director. "As the network gears up to offer the most in-depth and expansive coverage of the 2008 election, Opinion Research Corporation will be a key part of giving viewers the accurate and relevant information they demand to help them make decisions."

Opinion Research Corp. website - www.opinionresearch.com

Based on the history of the people who recently acquired Opinion Research Corp., we believe that the true purpose of the CNN/Opinion Research partnership is to rig the poll results to benefit Hillary Clinton in her 2008 presidential campaign.

Opinion Research was purchased last year by InfoUSA. InfoUSA is controlled by a hard-core Clintonista named Vinod Gupta.

Gupta is a major Clinton/DNC donor and fundraiser, and Lincoln Bedroom guest. He has recently spent large sums to establish these Clinton-worship centers in India -

The Bill Clinton Science and Technology Center

Gochar Intermediate College, Rampur Maniharan

The Center was founded to help Scientists, Engineers and Doctors better perform their duties in a professional manner and be a part of the process of technological advancement. The campus covers more than 10 acres and is home to Physics, Biology, Chemistry and Agricultural Labs and a Computer Science Center. It is Vinod's desire that some of those who study at the WJCST Center gain admission to medical and engineering colleges.

The Hillary Rodham Clinton Mass Communication Center

Having provided a basic curriculum at the Women's Polytechnic and Science Center, Vinod now has bigger plans to transform the lives of young men and women. This new center will include training in Journalism, Communications, Public Relations, Media Management, Television Presentation/Anchoring and Web Design.

Gupta manipulated InfoUSA's acquisition of Opinion Research to his personal benefit last year by purchasing shares in Opinion Research, then using his position as chairman of InfoUSA to orchestrate the acquisition of O.R.C. at a nearly 100% premium - thus driving up the value of his O.R.C. shares at the expense of his IUSA shareholders. This sleazy transaction was described last year in a New York Times article

Due to adverse publicity during an IUSA proxy battle last year, Gupta removed his personal web site (www.vingupta.com) which contained several photos of him getting cozy with the Clintons.

We have obtained several photos of Gupta getting hot and sweaty with the Clintons from his deleted web site -

Given the close personal and financial ties between the man who controls Opinion Research Corp. and the Clintons, we believe that the CNN/Opinion Research polling results are hopelessly tainted and intended to benefit Hillary Clinton's presidential bid. CNN either failed to perform due diligence on their partner, or they are complicit in this polling sham.

Bad as the media bias was in '04, it will be even worse in '08.

I predict science-fiction, Orwellian levels of it.
