First, bigger government is "cool," Now "paying higher taxes patriotic act for wealth"

What language will be like under a Democratic presidency:

WASHINGTON - Democratic vice presidential candidate Joe Biden said Thursday that paying more in taxes is the patriotic thing to do for wealthier Americans. In a new TV ad that repeats widely debunked claims about the Democratic tax plan, the Republican campaign calls Obama's tax increases "painful.". . . .

The story line reads:

Biden calls paying higher taxes a patriotic act

The author of the story indeed reports on the story line but manages to insert the following pro-Obama public service announcement:

"Under the economic plan proposed by Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama, people earning more than $250,000 a year would pay more in taxes while those earning less — the vast majority of American taxpayers — would receive a tax cut.

Although Republican John McCain claims that Obama would raise taxes, the independent Tax Policy Center and other groups conclude that four out of five U.S. households would receive tax cuts under Obama's proposals."

That's it. No explanation of the basis for John McCain's assertion.

Bias?
