These people were little cutouts of different photos. These were fakes created on a computer. I cannot believe anyone actually reads your pathetic propaganda.You really think we are that stupid?
You know, I think I’ll let others answer that question. But I hope you realize there is video as well. Also, I’m pretty sure we weren’t alone in covering the event: GBU Editor
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. stock market would fare better in the first year after a victory by Republican presidential candidate John McCain than by his Democratic rival Barack Obama, according to a majority of economists at U.S. banks and research groups polled by Reuters.
Your headline makes it sound as though you’re talking about all economists, but it turns out it’s just a poll of a few. Shame on you!
What a despicable display of hostility on your part to run such an awful photo of a man who just died. I was no fan of Jesse Helms but show some class, for once, when it comes to conservative matters. Your liberal bias really does not flatter you!
Not the best photo choice, no. We replaced it with something a little better: GBU Editor
Obama criticizes McCain on immigration
The lead story on Reuters/Yahoo contains this curious mis-statement of fact. You may wish to re-consider this!
Lawman’s raid on immigrants spark fury in Phoenix
Notice-the article makes it CLEAR that Sheriff Joe is a Republican, yet somehow the writers/editors omit that Phil Gordon and Mary Rose Wilcox are democrats. Tsk! Tsk!
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.
Michelle Obama, Cindy McCain are study in contrast
McCain posed in size zero jeans for the latest issue of Vogue. Obama, who has also appeared in the fashion magazine, was praised by style writers for the violet sheath dress she wore to her husband’s Democratic nomination victory rally and has been compared to former first lady Jacqueline Kennedy.
The blond, blue-eyed McCain is a former rodeo queen and cheerleader who holds a master’s degree in special education from the University of Southern California. She grew up in a wealthy family in Phoenix and is heiress to Hensley & Co, one of the largest U.S. distributors for brewing giant Anheuser-Busch.
Obama’s vice presidential choice now the focus
In her departure speech on Saturday, Clinton asked her supporters to rally behind Obama. She drew attention to the historic battle they waged between the first serious woman presidential candidate and possibly the first lack president.
I am assuming you mean “Black president.” Please edit your work before presenting it the public. There are enough mean and insensitive comments and statments characterizing senator Obama as unqualified, which he is not. We certainly don’t need our supposedly professional news media making these sorts of errors. I am hoping that it was just a error?
We spelled conceding properly on most versions of this story, but this error was introduced in editing the headline for online use. Lots of people noticed: GBU Editor
Obama admits reference to Auschwitz was wrong
Obama said, “A uncle…” not “An uncle.” You have your quote wrong. Obama made a gramatical error that you are correcting. He is all over the radio and TV saying the statement incorrectly. Why aren’t you quoting him the way he said it?
