This headline in Stars and Stripes is amazing:AFGHAN WAR PLODS ON

A headline in LA Times elaborates: GRIM REPORTS CAST DOUBT ON WAR PROGRESS

Meanwhile, back at the ranch, the tax cut robbery “stumbles” towards a vote in the House as conservatives are bought

and according to WSJ, this deal will shape the GOP primaries in 2012 – some candidates will brag about it, some will rail about it increasing the deficits (Palin, Romney)

WaPo  is shamelesly plastering its selective poll findings on page one


From the RW Newsbusters with the word “amazing” in the headline

It’s been a long time since I have been amazed by the media bias. But the real point they make is

A new ABC-Washington Post poll found ObamaCare sunk to its lowest popularity yet: 52 percent opposed, and only 43 percent in favor. ABC mentioned the poll without fanfare at the end of a Jake Tapper report on Monday’s World News, and Tapper added this was the health law’s “lowest level of popularity ever.” But Tuesday’s Washington Post reported not one sentence on the poll in the paper – even as they reported in the paper that the same survey found Obama’s tax-and-unemployment-compensation deal has “broad bipartisan support.”
So, WaPo doesn’t want you to know. Not after Obama latest “I give and give and nobody cares” bitching
So I pass a signature piece of legislation where we finally get health care for all Americans, something that Democrats had been fighting for for a hundred years, but because there was a provision in there that they didn’t get that would have affected maybe a couple of million people, even though we got health insurance for 30 million people and the potential for lower premiums for 100 million people, that somehow that was a sign of weakness and compromise.
Because this would undermine his point that
And I don’t think there’s a single Democrat out there, who if they looked at where we started when I came into office and look at where we are now, would say that somehow we have not moved in the direction that I promised.
In that 52% opposing, there must be a few Ds as well, me thinks.
The other point that emerges is Wapo’s credibility. If they abscond the parts of the poll that are inconvenient, why should I buy the headline (and the parts of the poll they like?

Maybe those bipartisan polled make all over one million dollars. Maybe they all work at the White House or WaPo.

There’s nothing “amazing” in this omission for me. Just what I grown to become accustomed from WaPo since their reporting on Bill Clinton.

If it’s in WaPo, it’s very likely made up. Especially considering that they have a lot to gain fron this particular lie.
