NewsMax Headline Gets It Wrong
Topic: Newsmax
The headline on a July 27 NewsMax article from the Associated Press reads: "Doonesbury Comic Calls Karl Rove a 'Turd.'"

But the article contradicts that claim:

It may be President Bush's nickname for key political adviser Karl Rove, but some editors don't think it belongs in their newspapers.

About a dozen papers objected to Tuesday's and Wednesday's "Doonesbury" comic strip, and some either pulled or edited it.

The strip refers to Rove, the White House deputy chief of staff, as "Turd Blossom."

All "Doonesbury" is doing is following the lead of the president. You'd think NewsMax would be pleased by that.
