Unbelievable. I rarely scream bias but that headline adds new meaning to the word, "bias."

I have never seen such blatant bias as in this headline. This isn't some confusing positioning of words but an out-an-out lie. The actual meat of this bony article, while trying to deflect the true blame here, doesn't continue the lie. It is purely for the quick hit, where someone doesn't actually read the article and goes away with an impression of the true aggressors being the dickweed Nazis.

"They just updated it to: "Anti-White Supremacist Protesters Riot"

Uh I don't see any change on ABC's site as of 1:18pm EST Sunday.

They only took what they needed to survive the floods caused by the hurricane generated by the secret Bush hurricane machine and due to the dynamiting of the levee...

oh, wait.

Just listening to the police chief yesterday told me all I had to know. It was as if he thought he was dealing solely with a race relations 'problem'.

Fox News has now changed their first paragraph of the article to read:

"A crowd protesting a white supremacists' march Saturday turned violent, throwing baseball-sized rocks at police, vandalizing vehicles and stores, and setting fire to a neighborhood bar, authorities said."

I'm still flabbergasted.

My brother, who lives in nearby Maumee, and I have talked since this morning and he was speechless when I told him about AP's headline.

The AP's culpability in this story ranks up there with Rather's in his.

It is a truly bizarre headline which has no relation to the story at all. When I worked on my school newspaper many years ago I did some headline writing as well as articles. Normally different people do the headlines, and at liberal newspapers the headline writers are the younger flunkies, over-eager to prove they are more flamingly leftist than their seniors, in hopes of promotion.

If a single White Supremacist had thrown a rock, I'm sure the eager photographers would have caught him in the act and plastered it on the front pages. The best they could come up with was the picture that accompanies the story:

Indeed they do.

Here is yet another updated version.
http://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory?id=1220631

ABC and others continue their attempts at deceit. Here again, they falsely claim that the resulting riot by gang bangers was caused by a planned march of white supremacists. (who never marched)

Yea right. Like gang bangers need an excuse to commit mayhem on public streets.

the poor gang bangers ! it wasn't their fault the awful Nazis
had to march , it wasn't their fault they had to run riot in the street and assault police officers! The poor misguided children would have been much better off if they'd gone to DC and listened to countless speakers encouraging them to act up ,but then to demand reparations too! It was a total failure
of Government responsibility that caused these otherwise decent lads to go totally berserk....

well, I thepoliticalteen.net has my (admittedly sloppy) email up about this... pretty high traffic site, that many others link to because he Tivos everything and has all the videos you could ever want to see (i.e. Donahue on the Factor, Black Panther idiots on Hannity & Colmes, etc. etc.) I definitely reccomend checking out his site regularly, if you don't have time to watch all the cable news primetime... anyway, here's his post (which again is just my sloppy email that I sent to Michelle Malkin and Little Green Footballs, but they haven't posted on it yet.)

I guess these lefties don't get Fox News on their cable. The rest of the country watched young black thugs throwing rocks through the windshield of an ambulance, attack police, and burn some offensive white-owned businesses. I can't wait to read Brent Bozell's comments on this lying news coverage.

excellent point... he actually gets seen on FNC. Perhaps he'll be on O'Reilly or H&C to mention this bologna tomorrow.
