    I mean they are having a real hard time hiding their feelings now, it used to be just the stories they'd bury. Now the animosity is coming through the headlines. Well they'll do the best they can, hoping things go south:

    Oh, well clearly this shows that, umm, the MSM hates... what are you trying to say, exactly?

    The MSM should, what, expect that everything is great, no matter what?

    Yea, I'm really not seeing what you're getting at either.

    Max got it, he's just a toad.

    Let me rephrase, 'Nothing good is ever expected with GW's Economy'.

    Seriously, the media has come unhinged. It's begun to be a morning ritual, the paper is delivered in the morning. I get my cuppa and table all cleared off. I sit down to enjoy, boom! Editorializing throughout news articles.

    It's not just the Tribune, they are just ahead of the game. The Wall Street Journal has started to sound like the Tribune of 10 years ago.

    i love editorials, I don't care which side of the issue, just not spliced between news events. Now it's popping up in headlines.

    Ohh... I don't think that they're inserting their opinion their. Most economist and most people on Wall Street have been expecting the housing bubble to either pop or cool off. I'm surprised it kept up as long as it did. Fortunately, we're seeing the beginning of a slowdown in many of the major markets. That better than a bubble pop. They aren't being partisan; an increase in the sales of new homes IS unexpected.

    Nope, the best they could come up with today is:

    They are being partisan and not just with housing numbers. It's now the norm to find an article about something 'good' only to have it segue in the first paragraph to something bad. Oftentimes with, 'many are laying this at the feet of the name an office under executive. It's an everyday deal.

    They wonder why they're losing subscribers? :laugh: They are a joke.

    And where do they blame the President in this article? I don't see any segue here.
