... they're as inaccurate as Howard Kurtz.

Pollster.com's Mark Blumenthal points out a Rasmussen poll question asking "Should the government set limits on how much salt Americans can eat?" As Blumenthal notes:

The Institute of Medicine is proposing to limit the amount of salt in processed food. No one is urging the government to restrict the sale of salt or "set limits on how much salt Americans can eat." Even if "public health groups" got their way, anyone could still choose to salt their food as much as they want.

Last week, Kurtz gave Washington Post readers a similarly bogus explanation of the salt controversy, as I explained at the time.
