MSNBC's Joe Scarborough claimed that John Zogby, president and CEO of the polling firm Zogby International and an Arab-American, "may be biased" on the issue of the Iraq war and "the Middle East situation."

On the March 22 edition of MSNBC's Scarborough Country, host Joe Scarborough claimed that John Zogby, president and CEO of the polling firm Zogby International and an Arab-American, "may be biased" on the issue of the Iraq war and "the Middle East situation."

In a discussion of the media's portrayal of the war, Scarborough referenced a February 28 New York Times column by Nicholas D. Kristof that covered a poll conducted by Zogby International and LeMoyne College. The poll asked 944 U.S. troops serving in Iraq, "How long should U.S. troops stay in Iraq?" Twenty-three percent of respondents said the troops should stay in Iraq "as long as they are needed," and 72 percent answered that the United States should exit the country within the next year.

From the March 22 edition of MSNBC's Scarborough Country:

SCARBOROUGH: [L]ast week Nick Kristof [a New York Times columnist] also wrote about this Zogby poll. I think it's important to talk about that Zogby has -- I think Zogby himself may be biased on this issue regarding this war, regarding Middle East -- the Middle East situation.
