How else could this headline have been written?

Check out the ridiculously biased headline used for the accompanying AP article by our own illustrious News Journal: "Obama backs free exercise of religion." Yep, this is in regards to the Ground Zero mosque. It's even noted on the online news "front page":

So, with this headline, the News Journal insults not only the sensibilities of 70% of Americans, but their intelligence as well. After all, if Obama (and the News Journal) says the Ground Zero mosque is merely a matter of "free exercise of religion," then obviously the 70% of Americans who oppose the mosque must not be in favor of said free exercise, right?

That's how MSM media bias works, folks.

Let's see -- how else could this headline have been written?

  • "Obama offends huge majority of American public."
  • "President a hypocrite by referring to Ground Zero as 'hallowed ground?'"
  • "70% of Americans wrong, says Obama."
  • "Vast majority of public against freedom of religion, says Obama."
  • "Obama: No comment on possible gay bar near Ground Zero mosque."

But you can sure that if any of these were suggested over at the News Journal, they would have been met with gasps and sneers.

"Obama once again sides with foreigners over American citizens"
"Obama again looks with contempt on majority of Americans"
I can't resist: "See? He IS a Muslim!"
"For once, Obama doesn't play the race card"

How about...'It's confirmed, its amateur hour in the white house' or 'Who is running this ship anyway?' and 'WTF?!'

OT Hube but the WSJ had a review of the latest Los Lobos album in case you did not see it.

Oh, I thought you wanted to avoid the offensive term "Coons" from the top headline.
