I just noticed a new link here on ATS... towards the top 1/3 of the page...

A picture of our President, George W. Bush. with the title Discraceful...

When you click the link you're taken to the thread talking about the President calling the New York Times discraceful...

however, just by looking at the picture/link and seeing the title discraceful... makes it misleading... at least in my opinion...

Like calling our President "discraceful"....

And why didn't you just use the Suggestions button?

I was curious as if I'm the only one who thinks its misleading?
Thats all.

I didn't find it misleading. I've been reading the news and the threads here on ATS, and I know that's the word he used to describe the NY Times.

In my opinion, the picture does seem to suggest that perhaps his part in all this is disgraceful as well, and I couldn't agree more. So if the word is a double entendre I agree with that suggestion.

Well, I wouldn't have found it misleading if it were in speech quotations, however, I personally perceived it as a label.. would have understood it more if it was split between the NYT and Bush.

I too found it misleading but I never take things fully at face value, I clicked it and understood thereafter.

I was not aware of the story until I saw the picture and clicked it out of curiosity.

Are you implying that any misleading may have been intentional?

no no... not implying anything other than to me, it's misleading....
I too clicked to discover what it was about...

If that is all I'd seen the President called on this forum, I'd be glad. And just so you realize that isn't the only example of twisted headlines see this thread:

www.abovetopsecret.com...

The responses you've gotten before reflect the posters views on fairness in media reporting, they're agin it, or at best don't care so long as the slants and twists are in the favor of their own personal POV's.

The url you provided doesn't work for me.
