Media Idiots

Somebody please send a memo informing Newsday and the San Francisco Chronicle that 34.6 is less than 35.6.

They ran headlines stating, respectively, "Dems boost Bush's sagging approval ratings" and "Democrats lift Bush's approval ratings."

Their evidence - in April 2006 Bush's average approval rating was 35.6% and in April 2007 it is 34.6%.

I'm not sure that even qualifies as truthiness.

  • Salvaged pet food contaminated with melamine was also fed to hogs in as many as six states, federal health officials said. It was not immediately clear if any of the hogs entered the food supply for humans.

    Just yet another good reason to give up eating meat. If the ecoli don't get you, the tainted feed will.
