The Pollcast, Episode II: Attack of the Polls

The second episode of the Pollcast is now up! You can listen to the latest episode directly here.

In this episode, guests Susan Delacourt of the Toronto Star and David Akin of Sun Media discuss the issue of polls and the media. Are journalists using polls correctly? Do polls influence their coverage (and is that a bad thing)? And does the media's reliance on polls highlight the discrepancy between the information the public has and the information that parties have?

Have a listen, and let me know what you think in the comments section below. Suggestions for topics you'd like to see discussed are also welcomed.
