NO JOE THE PLUMBER? ALSO, MORE JOURNALISTIC MALPRACTICE

After a few days off, I’m back with more in the string of what Yahoo! has to offer us in the news.  The headline with this picture is actually from the sports page.  Interesting that we had to rely on the sports page for important news such as this.  Political journalists didn’t want to cover this?  Hmm.  Again, the important question to ask is just how this would be covered if G.W. had done the same.  I have to admit that I’m curious as to what Obama will say during his time on the air.  Don’t you find it interesting that this is what we get about Obama the day after his speech at the Al Smith dinner in New York. 

The next piece of business in this headline about the polls.  How is this considered even remotely neutral?  The headline uses the word ‘souring’.  At least we don’t have anything on “Joe the plumer.”  We now know more about him than we do about William Ayers.
