Breaking News: A Newspaper Tells the Truth!

AP: "Bush often lies in his speeches." Seriously, that's the article.

When I saw your post, I thought "Wow, the media is finally, actually reporting the truth without being afraid of sounding shrill." Then I looked at the article.

The title is "Bush Using Straw-Man Arguments in Speeches" and I couldn't find the word "lies" anywhere in the article. Instead the argument is about Bush using a straw man argument. It's true straw man arguments are a classic rhetorical fallacy, but really that's a pretty weak article. It's like writing an article with the headline "Republicans favor rich people." It's true and it should upset people, but it's hardly what I would call news.
