'Many' = One

In a Sept. 10 article on Barack Obama's comment that "You can put lipstick on a pig. It's still a pig," Susan Jones baselessly asserts that "many people think he was making a sly reference to Sen. John McCain’s running mate Sarah Palin." Jones quotes only one person (a number far less than "many") making the claim -- former Massachusetts Gov. Jane Swift, a Republican -- but she fails to mention that Swift is a member of the McCain campaign's Palin "truth squad."

UPDATE: Jones repeats the baseless claim in another Sept. 10 article: "[M]any Americans viewed the comment as a sly reference to Sen. John McCain’s running mate, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin." But again, she quotes nobody who isn't a Republican or aligned with McCain's campaign.
