    but low intellegence people are going to be low intellegence regardless of whether they browse a factual headline or a misleading one.  Sure being mislead probably doesn't help the situation, but stupid is stupid.  One factual story isn't going to change a lifetime of stupidity.

    But you're right, being misled is not cool, it's vindictive, especially if it's done on purpose.

      I saw that and I have to say Barbara Boxer did not cross my mind as I clicked on it.    Drudge does stick it to democrats when possible but not so sure this is one of those.

      •  Then why was it spelled, Boxer: with capital B? (0+ / 0-)

        She is my Senator and the right hates her like crazy. I thought she was just a big Lakers fan, and so she made a comment.

        •  Maybe because (0+ / 0-)

          it's the first word in the headline, like all the the others that are capitalized.

          •  Maybe, but why didn't they just use his name? (0+ / 0-)

            I guess maybe I am super sensitve. I am a fan of Senator Boxer, and they had other headlines there and when you clicked on the story, the headlines were somewhat misleading. They do that all the time, take part of a quote out of context and make it seem like it is the entire story.  Yesterday a friend of mine, who is sort of an independent posted on Facebook a  story about the President , it was totally out of context and misleading. I think one of her conservative friends sent it to her and she felt strongly enough opposed to it she posted it on facebook, something she doesn't usually do, she is pretty much not that interested in politics, and I imagine when I saw this it pushed my buttons.

    •  And with Drudge, it is done on purpose. (0+ / 0-)
