Zogby Poll Shows Americans Favored Terri’s Survival
According to polls published by the mainstream media, particularly one by ABC News, it was indicated that most Americans favored the removal of the nutrition and hydration of Terri Schindler-Schiavo, the 41-year-old disabled woman who died of starvation and thirst March 31 in a court-ordered death in Florida.
But the polls by ABC and Time were based on the disinformation campaign engaged in by the mainstream media in the case. They didn’t tell the public that Terri Schiavo wasn’t vegetative, that she wasn’t in a coma, that she wasn’t terminal. They didn’t tell the public about Michael Schiavo’s adulterous affair and that the order to end her life was based on the self-serving hearsay testimony of Michael Schiavo who had a lot to gain by Terri’s death. In the opinion of many, the mainstream media is as responsible for the death of Terri Schiavo as Judge George W. Greer, Michael Schiavo and his attorney, George Felos.
