Headline Roundup (6/14/10)

In the news:

  • War propaganda: The big headline from the NYT plastered all over the Internet today is that the U.S. discovered $1 Trillion in mineral deposits in Afghanistan… as if this just happened. In truth, we’ve known about Afghan minerals since the 1980s. The allegedly “liberal” NYT’s article is well-timed to justify President Obama’s continued military expansion into Afghanistan even as the public grows weary of our operations there.
  • Too liberal? Near record 49% say the Democratic Party is.
  • Fascist medicine: The White House is now calling the shots for private health insurance companies with sweeping new powers and tight regulations.
