Who writes this crap?

Via Atrios, this report from CNN:

Obama squeaks by McCain in polls

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- The race between Sens. John McCain and Barack Obama is extremely tight, according to the latest CNN "Poll of Polls." Just five points separate the two candidates -- Obama's 48 percent to McCain's 43 percent, with 9 percent undecided.
Has there ever been a point in a national race where a 5 point lead was considered "extremely tight"? Where the leader was "squeak[ing] by"?

I understand that news agencies really want this race between Obama and McCain to be close--it makes for exciting coverage and justifies all those "analysts" they're paying. But don't they realize that they're not fooling anyone with stuff like this? They're only making themselves look bad.
