When I first checked CNN this morning for some after-action on the elections, I was greeted with this jewel center-page:
“Voters are today deciding which party will control Congress for the final two years of the Bush White House. The Iraq war and recent GOP gaffes may give Democrats a boost to victory.”
Checking back just a few minutes laters, the tag line now reads:
“Voters are today deciding which party will control Congress for the final two years of the Bush White House. Early exit polls indicated corruption and terrorism were the most important issues.”
When I first read the lead sentence, I almost screamed, “And Kerry’s little number was somehow insignificant?!!” Could it be that someone belatedly decided that the first snippet sounded a bit too, oh I dunno, partisan or biased? Nyah.
And why, oh why, does my coffee taste like licorice this morning, of all things?
