Aside from the spin, what's wrong with the opening paragraph of this story?

Anyone? I've e-mailed the Editor.

"suggesting that the United States' non-interventionist policy invited the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001."

Wow, no wonder they attacked us. What with us leaving them alone and all, good thing we invaded over there now so they'll leave us alone.

Ha ha! Exactly.

Assuming they fix it, I wonder how long it'll take ...

Just a few minutes ago, in fact. Hmmmmm.... Wonder what kind of spin they're trying to create. Perhaps an honest editorial mistake...

As did I.

I'm sure it's an honest mistake:rolleyes:

Actually first the moderator and then Dr. Paul mispoke and said "non-intervention was a major contributing factor."

Still it is obvious what was meant and since the article doesn't take that direct quote but instead summarizes it should make it clear what was meant.

(There is a video of the quote in the first few seconds of the last video on this http://titanmiller.no-ip.org/publog/?p=93) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sk334TbliaY)

Bunch of blondes working in the news department?

I'm still trying to find the final poll results.

Fox New Journalism. That's an odd combination of words.

Ahh, damn! I should have proof-read. Didn't mean to leave out the 's' ... Guess it can happen to anyone (kind of ironic in that I was pointing out a mistake in the article.)

Fox New Journalism is good way to put it. Propaganda is another.

Fox News is not "fair and balanced" as they claim and they certainly don't live up to their own motto of "we report, you decide." They represent yellow journalism at its very worst, carrying the water for their neoconservative masters.
