Fake survey

We've all received these in the mail - "surveys" asking our opinion of political issues, whose only functional purpose is to disguise a fundraising appeal.  I took the screencap above from an online embed at the Los Angeles Times.  I was bemused to note that question 6 asked "On which issues does the mainstream media do the worst job... (select as many that [sic] apply)."

I didn't submit my reply, because at the end of the "survey" the participant is required to enter a valid email address - which of course is the entire intent of the instrument.
