Bullshit rides a limo,
while Truth limps down the road.

 

Drudge headline:
BLACK DEATH WARNING: Plague could mutate and become untreatable … MILLIONS at risk…
although story says: 

Pneumonic plague (not “Black Death”) can be fatal within 72 hours of infection, though can also be cured with a course of antibiotics if administered quickly.
Despite fears the plague could spread to other countries, there are signs that the infection in Madagascar is slowing down.
Dr. Manitra Rakotoarivony, Madagascar’s director of health promotion, said: ‘There is an improvement in the fight against the spread of the plague, which means that there are fewer patients in hospitals. There are almost no more deaths due to the plague… in recent days.’

And here’s the Voice of America headline and story:

Actually, the story describes a “once-empty parking lot” now “jammed with cars.”  More than a thousand new employees are working in rows of temporary trailers, a dozen tan-colored tents and a vast assembly hangar at the desert site near the edge of urban Los Angeles County.
— Somehow this seems more like an assembly line than a deep, dark secret.

Drudge: Partisan divide grows in US states, with mixed results
Here’s the AP’s lead:
