WISHFUL THINKING: “Pelosi Favored to Lead House” reads this AP headline.
No–Denny Hastert leads the House. Remember–the evil Republicans in charge–you know the drill, right? Pelosi is the Democrats’ minority leader.
I normally don’t think of AP as waving their bias in the reader’s face, and they haven’t been anywhere near as bad as Reuters, post Sept. 11th. But the person who wrote this article clearly is having trouble accepting which party has been charge of Congress since January of 1995.
