Cohen was rigging polls for Trump

Funny thing is at the same time Trump was praising Drudge and talking about a rigged system with rigged polls saying online polls are more accurate. His personal attorney/bagman was paying IT guys to rig online polls. He knew about the rigging because he had been paying money to rig the polls.

Do you guys really think "rigging" online polls is a big deal? Heck, I have people trying to rig the Yappi Football Polls all the time. If CNBC can't write decent software to prevent the votes from being rigged, shame on them.

The only negative to this story is that Trump thought it was important enough to waste money on. At least he didn't hire a click farm in India instead of spending his money with an American company.

There are poor saps that actually vote based on who everyone else is voting for.

If Russia helped Trump they did not help him enough to win. Hillary did that all on her own. As someone on here constantly points out neglecting the key Midwest/Great Lakes states was #1.

Everything taken one at a time doesn’t seem to count for much but you need to seemingly loon the other way constantly . Nothing matters , there is nothing that causes you any concern for some reason . I know the reasons but will refrain . Everything is justified rationalized and explIned away . Not sustainable long term though.

Rigging an online poll is like rigging the results of a WWF match - much ado about nothing.

I mean online polls are designed to be "rigged".

The bigger issue about polls are the ones that are purportedly run scientifically that use subtle sampling tricks to skew the results. That is a much bigger issue then what the results of a Drudge poll show.

Funny how the only accurate polls were the rigged ones? That is awesome because practically every poll the dems were caught oversampling etc. This was proven out at the ballot box.

Trump is using our trick but he actually got it right...get him...LOL

Can you say TDS.

Which affected the 2016 election more: rigged opinion polls, or rigged voting primaries? Only Bernie Sanders knows for sure.

Didn't say that. But I really don't care about this latest "scandal" just like I don't care that Alabama fans rigged a Twitter poll saying that Tua Tagovailoa should win the Heisman.

Isn't a much larger issue, the amount of deceased people voting in highly democratic areas (California, Chicago etc.)

One was in 2014 about business leaders. The other was in 2015 about potential Presidential candidates. The first definitely had nothing to do with campaign finance.

How does this square with the push polls that are clearly fake polls by both sides? Are they both against campaign finance laws?

Considering the polls told us Hillary was sure to win, his efforts to balance the bias didn't seem to work

Trump was always saying the polls he was following, that weren't getting national attention, always had him in the lead.

Gee, now we know how that happened!

Here is the problem. You are trying to use common sense to understand Trump and there really is no way to understand that mind

Rigging online data is a common practice and goes back to the very beginning of the internet. Hopefully all those calling for Trump to be impeached for this latest "scandal" will take the necessary steps to delete their Facebook accounts...

Facebook employees caught posting 5-star Portal reviews on Amazon

Facebook released its Portal and Portal+ smart displays two months ago, at the tail end of a scandal-ridden year in which data leaks and privacy incidents were abundant. So, the company faced a tough battle in convincing consumers to buy a smart display for their homes, no matter how well the camera tracking works. Still, Facebook does have some happy customers, judging by Portal's five-star reviews on Amazon. Or at least it seems that way until you take a closer look, and see that some of them were apparently left by Facebook employees.

New York Times tech columnist Kevin Roose spotted that several reviewers' names matched Facebook employees' monikers. The reviews were all marked as Amazon Verified, meaning the reviewers had actually bought the devices from Amazon. As such, there's a chance the high ratings could be from genuinely enthusiastic Portal owners, even if they are Facebook employees.

The favorite justification of trump[ and his 'Men" a handful of whose careers are toast because they are shady corrupt and committed crimes , is that we have seen all this before, , happens all the time . Every candidate has people like Trump had around him , every election has seen this type of Russian involvement and interference .

At first it was nothing happened at all , nothing to see, all fake news, then the lies and evidence mounts and it's like WELL WE'VE SEEN THS BEFORE NO BIG DEAL.

So we always see this many indictments and shade in all campaign rosters ? this many guilty pleas and corrupt dealings? happens all the time? All Presidents bowed down to the Russian leader on a world stage taking his side over US Intelligence ? Why not just say , We see this all the tie two years ago no big deal.


No the denial comes first then shift the focus to previous leaders, then say they have nothing, then when it's clear they do , it's not big deal they all do it . Sounds like a teenager lamely trying to explain and rationalize poor behavior, Lie and deny , say everyone is doing it and that others are worse but didn't get caught. Trump is kind of teenage like emotionally isn't he? Worse on twitter than teens.

It didn’t but it is just another symptom of a crooked and in Cohens case criminal Trump team . I am more convinced that there is nothing Trump did or will do that you won’t lamely explain away as nothing . You guys spoke of Benghazi for almost a decade now and some emails that hurt the country how?

But men in the Trump administration and campaign team can
Plead guilty be indicted and lose court cases and the response is “ the sentence isn’t very long “ or the recommended no jail time for Flynn as if that isn’t standard procedure for over 70 hours and 18 meetings offering help to the prosecutors . You guys go as far as not believing Flynn’s admission of guilt . With no evidence you say they were threatening his family . Incredible

I haven't done any of those things.

You need to stop crying "wolf" over every move. It really reduces the effectiveness.

Like the Gillette ad, this is not something to get worked up over.
