A Tale of Two Headlines

Wednesday's Example of Media Bias   —   Posted on February 25, 2009

From Gallup:

No Mandate for Criminal Probes of Bush Administration

From USA Today:

Poll: Most want inquiry into anti-terror tactics

The poll is skewed heavily to the left on the criminal investigation question because liberals, almost to a man, want to see Bush in jail. I find it interesting that a clear majority do not want criminal investigations – unexpected given all the rancid rhetoric from the left for 8 years.

Technically, both headlines are correct. But do you think there is any bias at USA Today when the poll shows a majority against criminal probes?
