Headline bias

The top headline at CNN is “Iraq death toll mounts”. Well, what else could it do? Decrease due to resurrections? Hard to say whether this is due to actual bias or just general cluelessness by the headline writer.

Well, couldn’t it stay constant?

There’s probably plenty of legit bias/cluelessness to rail against at CNN. You should probably save your energy for those.

No, not with 170,000 people driving and flying around. Some of them are going to die.

Sure, but these aren’t accidents they’re talking about here. If they were, I’d agree with you.
