More deceptive reporting

The key sentence was buried at the end of the article

Romney spoke to a room of people sitting at round tables covered with white tablecloths. Waiters in white tuxedo jackets and black bow ties brought them fruit and yogurt parfaits. The crowd was quick to applaud, including when Romney mentioned Marco Rubio, who has been mentioned as a potential pick for vice president.

Here's the headline

Romney uses healthcare ruling to rev up crowd in New York

1. I find that typical

The headlines are often misleading.

A few weeks ago, I got home and checked the headlines on the major news networks websites. All of the Romney headlines sounded positive, all the Obama sounded negative. The stories didn't not match the headlines.

My other favorite is if the poll is Obama 45 Romney 43 the headlines are Obama in near tie. Obama 43 Romney 45 the head line is Romney leads Obama.
