……to find time in my schedule for blogging. Having almost a chemical addiction to news, I consume…. but haven’t allowed the time for much output, save for the occasional emailed diatribe (or two) to my friends.
In the interest of time, I’m reprinting something I shared with them earlier this week. It’s still relevant, it’s egregious and oh, so predictable.
In Congress, if something gets voted down unanimously, what does it matter whom the majority is? By asking that question, I’d obviously make a lousy journalist.
Prepare for commercial strength spin, courtesy of the Associated Press:
GOP-run House easily rejects Obama budget
Ok, that makes you think: “those dirty, evil, gosh-darned Republicans used their majority to vote it down”, ….correct?
At the end of the story comes this rather essential factoid:
The vote was 414-0.
Yes, that would be “0”, as in “no one“.
Ummmm, ….I think the headline writers at AP kinda missed the entire point of the vote?
