Bush Overtakes Kerry
A new CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll finds George W. Bush enjoying increased support in the race for president compared to a poll taken in early March. As a result, Bush now leads Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry among registered voters by a slim margin, 49% vs. 46%. Approval for Bush’s handling of his job is also up slightly, to 53%. Compared to February, the same poll finds Kerry’s favorable image slightly diminished and that Bush has maintained his favorable image ....

I frequently find that many people are so influenced by the headlines that they approach the real content of an article from a biased perspective. The headline really shapes one's opinion of what a story says.

In my experience with media relations, it doesn't matter how much time you spend with a reporter to make sure the facts are right, or to try to get a favorable slant to a story. The reporter doesn't write the headline, the editor does based upon the newspaper's political/social/economic objectives. Can't tell you how many times I see headlines that say the exact opposite of the content of an article.

Agreed. Of course news is not news and cannot be reported, unless it is bad. Example - The good things happening in Iraq get little coverage. The bad are on the pages or the telly for days. The headline is nearly always driven by the media's perspective of the issue. In the case of politics, it is either the right or left bias. I find the major media to mostly left slanted and some cable (FOX) to be right slanted. Newspapers are mostly slanted left. After adding in the political correct filter you have no news. Instead you are blessed with the opinion of some lazy or biased journalist who is intent on making the news versus reporting actual facts. Example of bias - Rueters is a classic in terms of how they report on terrorists and terrorist events. NYT - liberal stronghold on all reporting of politics. LA Times - same deal. Can't leave out the internet since it may have more bias than any of the other media. A need for the discerning eye... :-)

Bush is the 'most corrupt president', says Nixon aide jailed for Watergate perjury

By Julian Coman in Washington
(Filed: 04/04/2004)

John Dean, Richard Nixon's legal counsel who was jailed for his part in the Watergate scandal, has accused the Bush administration of trumping even the Nixon regime in secrecy, deception and political cynicism.

In the latest book to attack the conduct of the current United States administration, Mr Dean says that it has created potentially the most corrupt, unethical and undemocratic White House in history. . . . .

Quahog, For the record the headline reads: Bush's Administration Is Worse Than Nixon's, Says Watergate Aide

Comment - It is noted that this is another book selling effort by the perjuring lawyer for Nixon. Oh well, ultimately we shall see if the GWB administration is "actually" the most corrupt. It is easy at this stage to make accusations of "potential" corruption for the purpose of selling his book. I love freedom of speech. We can say anything at any time. <g>

That is odd, because at the time of my post the headline was accurate. I just did a cut & paste, and added a little html.

You can see it is still referenced in Google's search, at the top: google.com

Maybe they're just trying to get a little more mileage out of the story by changing headlines.

For the record, I have no idea whether GWB is the most corrupt President ever. I do know, though, that he is the one who most resembles a monkey.......followed closely by Nixon of course.

Is that a Capuchin(o) monkey, a Howler monkey or a Baboon monkey? What will Kerry resemble? A French monkey?
