Headline: Flash poll: Donald Trump won the final presidential debate

AOL online (October 20, 2016)

The article’s first sentence says this is a “flash” poll. The second sentence says it is an “unscientific survey that ran on AOL.com during the debate” (italics added). AOL assumes you don’t understand what it means to be an “unscientific” survey?

My headline: AOL poll tells nothing about who won final debate, but — ooh — it was a “flash” poll!
