Take a gander at two recent screen captures from, respectively, Yahoo!’s home page and AOL’s
As the Republican National Convention is about to convene in Tampa, our friends at Yahoo! and AOL are determined to use Democratic talking points to define the proceedings.
Note the Yahoo! headline; the only reason this supposed “rape controversy” looms over the convention is because the legadyy media, following the Democrats’ lead, dwells on it. AOL has the presumptive Republican nominee’s partisan rival calling out his biggest flaw.
How nice. Should we see a headline next Sunday on AOL with Mitt Romney calling out the incumbent’s “biggest flaw.” (Don’t hold your breath.) And in the “controversy” article that Yahoo! links, AP writer David Espo gives away the game, when he quotes the head of the opposing party (to describe the upcoming GOP gathering):
“Now, Akin’s choice of words isn’t the real issue here. The real issue is a Republican Party — led by Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan — whose policies on women and their health are dangerously wrong,” said a recent letter from Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the chairwoman of the Democratic Party.
The party also posted a Web video that emphasizes the Republican Party’s opposition to abortion and digitally alters the Republicans’ “Romney-Ryan” logo to say “Romney Ryan Akin.”
Now, we know where they got their notion of controversy. Funny how our media often turn to frequently discredited Democrats in articles on the Republican Party. You’d think Mr. Espo could at least let us know about Miss Wasserman Schultz’s often inaccurate descriptions of her partisan rivals’ positions.
Do hope Yahoo! and AP will turn to more reliable Republicans when covering the Democrats’ gathering next month in Charlotte.
