Definition of Media Spin....

I don't know if this was done out of ignorance or opportunity, but it's really funny. An article in the economist this week said this:

Abandoned and trampled upon: that has been the story of Mrs Clinton's week. Since her successes on Super Tuesday, Barack Obama has won eight primaries and caucuses by wide—sometimes astonishing—margins. He won the Washington state caucus by 37 points. In Garfield County 100% of voters plumped for him. He won Maine by 19 points, Louisiana by 21 and Nebraska by 36.

WOW, he won Garfield County by 100%! That's Impressive! Not really, if they had bothered to check the map, they would have seen that only one person voted in Garfield county. Makes the accomplishment seem a bit less impressive doesn't it?
