We're Not Sure, But... - CNN's headline for its poll story: "Bush apparently leads Kerry in pre-debate poll." Sure. If "apparently" means by 8 points. Do you think the headline would have been the same had the poll positions been reversed? If Kerry had been ahead of Bush at this point, with the same spread, the headline would likely have been "Kerry holds commanding lead over Bush" or "Kerry in strong position heading into debates."
But blast it, it's a Republican who's ahead. That just ruins everything.
What media bias?
