Best choice for economy?
McCain seen as best choice for economy
NEW YORK (Reuters) – Republican presidential candidate John McCain’s tax policies have given him an edge as the better man for the economy, various Wall Street experts said at this week’s Reuters Investment Outlook Summit.
But, against a backdrop of job losses and deteriorating home values, Wall Street is backing McCain’s Democratic rival, Barack Obama with cold, hard cash.
This headline reeks of bias. The headline is vague and not based on anything provable. I could just as easily have found a handful of Wall Street experts to say Obama is better for the economy. I encourage Reuters editors to keep objectivity in mind during a politically charged season.
Several readers objected to this headline, especially in light of a second paragraph that said Wall Street is giving money to Obama, anyway. The headline was later changed to clarify that it was the view of people speaking at a Reuters Summit: GBU Editor
