Tsk tsk, Curiousity.
Give it a bit for people to read your post and respond.
News services are in business to... sell news. Even my little local paper with a combined readership of 50,000 subscribers skews headlines about
local politics or local government to make people impulse buy at the checkout in the convenience stores. It is up to the reader to use critical
thinking when reading an article from any news source to discern fact from slant or fiction.
There was another thread recently about incorrect or slanted headlines that, IMO, didn't garner a whole lot of attention either. It just isn't a
sexy topic and most people realize that there is a "spin" inherent in most every story.

In order to respond to the information, and the obviousness of it all, one would have to be unbiased oneself.
You should realize that there are no unbiased people. Just because you are a little upset that no one has responded yet to your thread does not give
justification to sling innuendo.
I am not jumping on you, just offering you free advice to let your post sit a bit and receive some hits from members. I would think that you will
some receive some responses shortly from members that may only read ATS in their free time, and with summer here, that free time is limited.
