Frank Luntz Blames Fox News For His Biased Focus Group

Reported by Ellen - February 1, 2011 -

It looks like James Rainey of the Los Angeles Times picked up on the same issues I did regarding Frank Luntz' anti-Obama focus group that panned discussed the State of the Union address on Hannity last week. But when Rainey contacted Luntz for comment, he came up with a rather surprising defense: Fox News wanted the anti-Obama bias.

Rainey writes:

Luntz defends himself by saying that he has conducted focus groups before that favored Obama, including during the 2008 campaign. He has suggested that his airtime has previously been cut on Fox because his findings didn't comport with the outlet's orthodoxy

Good to know that when his methods come under scrutiny, Luntz blames Fox News for his bias.
