Headline bias? What headline bias??


There. Right there. On Yahoo's front page.

Palin reportedly used state money for travel while at home.

Good golly, miss school marm. Shame on you for following state law which allows public officials to be reimbursed for out of pocket expenses.

Patrick Casey at the American Thinker trashes this pathetic non-story from the WAPO.

This seems to be a story that some editor at the Washington Post wanted to run with that particular headline, regardless of the direction that the facts took it. I hate to break it to the newspaper, but Alaska is half the size of the continental United States. Sometimes, visiting your next-door neighbor is the equivalent of taking a trip from Boston to Washington - and that's expensive. As the article also tells us, many times the invitations extended to Governor Palin by groups and organizations across the state (let alone across the country) specifically requested the presence of her family - a fact which makes Palin's husband and children eligible for reimbursement.

Desperados. Photoshopped bikini pictures a whole lot more fun....
