Phenomenal Headlines

Skimming through Google's news aggregator, I ran across an article with the following headline:

Obama Admits Failing to Sell Successes to Americans

It's good to know that the only bias to be found in news media these days is that which can be found under the umbra of one Rupert Murdoch (read: Fox News). All kidding aside, there's a lot to be said about the framing of an argument, and I'm not quite sure if this particular framing is actually that of Obama, the writer of this article, or both. But one thing is for sure, responding to a political loss by acknowledging a particular candidate's convey his a kind of ego-trip that even Randians would wince at.

And I know because they're my friends.
