Fun With Headlines

Ace of Spades note the many ways that American newspapers try to spin a rather alarming fact discovered by a recent Pew poll:

One in four younger U.S. Muslims support suicide bombings.

As Ace writes, “This is what j-school taught them? How to actively withhold information from the public?”

The late David Halberstam once boasted that, “We give a jarring perception of reality to people”–but when the news gets too jarring, liberal journalists are perfectly prepared to withhold it or reshape it as necessary.

Update: Much more from on the actual numbers of the poll from Michelle Malkin.
