Here’s a screenshot I just took of Yahoo’s front page. The headline links to a Reuters article (Reuters is a decent news source, but the writer of this particular article belies in this tease alone his party affiliation.)
Notice anything sort of…weird about this screenshot?
Under the headline, it says, “Arizona’s secretary of state asks to see proof in order to put the president on November’s ballot.” But then look at what it says right after that: “Romney link.”
In other words, what the author, a Mr. Tim Gaynor, did after hearing the story about Arizona’s secretary of state, Ken Bennett, wanting proof of Obama’s eligibility was to immediately find out if there was some way to connect the man with Romney. You know, cheer-leading for Obama by way of joining Obama’s smear campaign.
Yes, you can connect Romney with Bennett—Bennett is co-chairman of Romney’s AZ campaign—but Bennett’s request for eligibility proof has nothing whatsoever to do with Romney. Nothing. Why should Mitt Romney’s name come up anywhere in this article at all? It’s as irrelevant as it would be to mention Bennett’s second-cousin’s neighbor’s brother.
