HUFFINGTON POST WINS "MEDIA PETTINESS AWARD"!

***
Once again,
has won another dubious award.
*
This week it's
"THE MEDIA PETTINESS AWARD"!
*
A while back, President Obama referenced
saying, "...don't believe everything you read 
in the Huffington Post."
*
Huffington apparently got in a huff-hissy fit
over the remark and has been writing "snarkyisms"
about the president since that time. 
 *
TODAY, THIS WAS A MAJOR HEADLINE:
"DID HE LIE ON NATIONAL TV?"
*
The answer, of course, is "NO", the President didn't
lie on national TV. He's too smart for that.
*
Given the courts have ruled the media has a First Amendment
 "RIGHT to LIE",
as well as 'to distort and mislead',
is well within it's parameters to print
MISLEADING - PETTY HEADLINES
such as the one above.
