Yahoo’s The Upshot blog takes the cake for distortions today with this headline:
Reading the article reveals it is only two republicans, Michele Bachmann and Mike Huckabee, citing these figures, yet the headline would have you think it’s the entire republican party. I’ve tried numerous times to post a comment pointing out this distortion, to no avail. Yahoo seems to be censoring those who are pointing this out as I’ve seen other comments mentioning the fact it’s only two republicans appear on the site, only to disappear moments later. Shameful behavior on the part of Yahoo – for the distortion and the censorship.
Update: These two (Bachmann & Huckabee) are not in leadership positions, and the major right-wing blogs have either said this is not true or have ignored the story, so I’m still confused as to how this can be labelled “Republicans” when it’s only a couple of idiots.
