Latest Reuters poll?

Why aren't news outlets discussing this poll?
http://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-election-poll-idUSKCN0ZS2MO

It's seems like the only polls that are being mentioned are the ones favarobale to Trump. Real clear politics isn't even calculating the poll in it average. It is still using an older Reuters poll. But the had time to include the latest Rasmussen and cbs polls

4. Corporate media need for ratings to make it look close and polls that do not share

their narrative won't be discussed or very tiny little discussion will happen. Also, corporate media is pumping up T-rump. Ya think T-rump would be 100% over HRC and he's not nor even close, but alas they have to make it look that way. Plus seems like every convention election cycle corporate media have to pump up the candidates for that party although this year I don't see the pumping up HRC nor any Dems prior to the Dems convention.

5. As others have said....

The media wants a horse race scenario, to drag Hillary down as far as they can, and to profit off of tRump who is ratings GOLD. Remember when Hillary had a decent lead heading into the stretch of the California primary race, and all of a sudden there were 2 last polls (Out of ALL of the polls here in California) which showed a horse race scenario, and maybe even losing California, even though for many months she'd lead here in California by decent margins for a long while. While I knew she wouldn't win California by 18 points (Like one poll was suggesting), I knew she'd win by a comfortable margin of around 5-8 points. There was never one poll (Except a "weird" outlier poll) showing her losing California. Yet the final 2 weeks before the California primary, there the media was (Especially Laurence O'Donnell) touting these LAST 2 polls right before the California primary showing Hillary possibly losing California or Bernie winning it by 1-2 points.

Well, we know what happened....
