SeaWorld IP address tied to lopsided 'Blackfish' poll numbers

A recent online poll conducted by the Orlando Business Journal asked if the documentary "BlackFish", which aired on CNN, changed your opinion of SeaWorld.

Did SeaWorld stuff ballots for 'Blackfish' poll?

More than 90 percent of respondents said no, which seemed a bit 'fishy' to the paper. So they looked into it and found that more than half of the votes came from a SeaWorld IP address.

CNN's Martin Savidge has the latest.

    It is pretty sad that SeaWorld not only got caught on film mis-handling the whales but now they get caught in an on-line survey with their hands in the cookie jar manipulating the results to sway in their favor??? Shame on them and yes, this has definitely swayed my outlook towards them. If I did not know any better, I would say that they are government owned!
