Phoney Baloony - government wasting time

NOW HERE'S A NICE NEUTRAL HEADLINE:
1088 OTHERS ARE HERE:
(The funny thing is there really was no all night debate - some went home anyway & some just found a nice corner to sleep in)  This puts Yahoo News on my shit list!  Google's choice of representative headline is also suspicious.

Michael Ware gives us the straight scivvy of why Americans (and Democrats in Congress) want desperately to stop this disasterous war.  He tells us how Al Quaeda was handed a base of operation and a sufficient motivation to flourish in Iraq.   Hopefully the all nighter got into some of this material.

Btw, and again, Google's choice of headlines is auomated.

I have seen too many out of place headlines to believe that Google doesn't throw in a headline that fits their political sense of bullshit once & a while regardless of what they say; yours & Yahoo's Bush-bashing notwithstanding.

BTW, too bad the Demos lost another round trying to surrender.

Well here is one "choice" that is just too stupid to have been made intentionally ...

Yep, I can't see how that one got there.  The page doesn't have that.
Actually it was in the left hand column at the bottom.  Google needs to parse the structure of the page better.
I doubt that Google parses the page.  Rather they probably get some kind of XML feed from the news provider.  I think Google rotated to choosing Fox News and then displayed whatever headline Fox put in their file.
