CNBC reporter John Harwood found out this week what happens when you poll people and don’t skew it through the eyes of the media.
On Thursday he posted a poll on his Twitter page and asked people who they trust more, the intelligence community or Wikileaks.
After more than 84,000 votes the results were a resounding victory for Wikileaks with a whopping 83 percent of respondents picking them.
Who do you believe America?

The victory for Wikileaks followed a similar poll conducted by Lou Dobbs in which he asked if Americans believed President Obama or Wikileaks founder Julian Assange.

Who they didn’t believe more than anyone was Hardwood himself.

@JohnJHarwood considering they showed you colluding with the Clinton Campaign, don’t you think you are a little biased here bub?

@JohnJHarwood Um weren’t you named in the Wikileaks drops? You’re a hack and you should be fired. You are exactly why we hate the media.
