CNS: Obama Texting VP Announcement = "Trolling for Email Addresses"

An Aug. 11 article by Susan Jones reports on Barack Obama's plan to announce his vice presidential choice via email to supporters.

But what does the headline say? "Obmaa Trolling for Email Addresses." Jones ominously adds: "The Obama campaign is eager to gather as many email addresses as possible for get-out-the-vote and fund-raising purposes."

Aside from not explaining why gathering email addresses from supporters is hardly an unorthodox campaign procedure -- indeed, John McCain's campaign is also trolling for email addresses, though Jones would likely never call it that -- Jones ignores the actual news here: Obama will also utilize text messaging to announce his VP pick, not just email.

Jones' slanted presentation is reflective of CNS' emerging anti-Obama bias.
