Burying the Lede

Burying the lede is a term most journalism students should learn as a freshman. It means headlining and/or leading off the article with secondary information, and thereby missing the main point of the story. It is considered bad form. Perhaps the writer of this article slept through class that day. After all, no self-respecting journalist would write the following headline out of intent to "spin" the story, would they?

Three in 10 Call SCOTUS 'Too Conservative'
Poll Finds Figure Is Considerably Higher Than Two Years Ago
July 29, 2007

Three in 10 Americans say the Supreme Court is "too conservative," up sharply from two years ago and now substantially more than call it "too liberal." Just under half say the court is about balanced ideologically in its decisions.

Thirty-one-percent call the court too conservative, compared with 19 percent in July 2005 -- a period in which Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Samuel Alito have joined the court, replacing William Rehnquist and Sandra Day O'Connor.

Considerably fewer, 18 percent, call the court too liberal. Forty-seven percent say it's balanced, down from 55 percent in 2005.

Poor Pagans!! Tiny Violins for YOU!

Poor pagans!
    Giant Homer Simpson Prompts Pagan Backlash

    A giant outline of Homer Simpson brandishing a doughnut was enough to make even pagans go "D'oh."

    Painted opposite famous fertility symbol, the Cerne Abbas giant, the idea had been to plug the new Simpsons movie due out later this month.

    But instead the image has incited the wrath of British pagans who have now pledged to perform "rain magic" to rid their sacred site of its unwelcome guest.
I say two things! ONE: At least Homey is wearing himself some undies and TWO: Here's to dry weather!! HAHA!!
