How to lie with a headline: 13WHAM TV in Rochester caught openly decieving 
Here's the headline:

Poll: U.S. to Bush: Pull out of Iraq.


Now here's the United Press International story:

The top piece of advice Americans would give President Bush is to pull out of the war in Iraq, a poll released Thursday indicated.

Nearly a quarter of respondents to a Gallup Poll said that if they had 15 minutes to talk to the president they would tell him to end the war in Iraq, making it the No. 1 response.


That's right: This "poll" (don't even get me started on the idiotic design) found that not even 15% of respondents are advocating that Bush pull out of Iraq, but it gets played up in the headline like some groundswell of opinion.

These news organizations are just getting vile, aren't they? I mean, these scuzzwads don't even bother to attempt to hide it anymore.

Splash, out
