Editing for Obama

Who's in the tank for The O-and-Savior?

Here's the JSOnline headline:

Guard veterans back Obama over McCain

It takes about 45 seconds to read the story and realize that the accurate headline would be:

TWO Guard veterans back Obama over McCain.

Obviously it's a slow news day for Steve Walters, who couldn't find this story even though Owen Robinson had it last night. I mean, when the state teacher's union is attempting to kill off the Choice program, it sounds like news to me. But not to Walters, nor to his editors.

Wonder why circulation continues to drop like a rock?
