We Distort. You Comply.

My morning ritual is a pretty simple one: sit down at my desk with a scone and a tall cup of iced coffee, pull down the “News” folder in my bookmark bar, and read through the headlines on half a dozen news sites.

The contrast, some mornings, is instructive. Behold, today’s crop of lead headlines:

The New York Times:

The Washington Post:

The BBC News Online:

The Wall Street Journal:


You know, I don’t lightly stop reading any news source: I’m a news junkie and not afraid to admit it. And conservative bias isn’t enough to turn me away: I happily read the Wall Street Journal and the Economist. But what I will not put up with is having my time deliberately wasted.

“President’s wife thinks he’s swell.” For this, Ted Turner got $87 Million?
