this goes back to the Civil War between the States. Look up "dime store
novels" and "yellow journalism" in any high school history book. Didn't
matter what was printed as long as THE STORY SOLD ITSELF ! This is how we
have the "true story of Jesse James", "Wild Bill Hickock", and other western
hroes and villians. A chap named Hearst promoted a ton of this tripe.

Now I better understand what passes for journalism today.

I've always been amazed how politicians from opposing parties can look
at the same event or set of figures, and discover completely different
"facts" or results.
