UPI Rips Open a Big Bag of Bad Journalism

The AARP just conducted a poll on health insurance and found a surprising result: 8 out of 10 people want a public option.
All: 79 percent favor/18 percent oppose
Democrats: 89 percent favor/8 percent oppose
Republicans: 61 percent favor/33 percent oppose
Independents: 80 percent favor/16 percent oppose
Big news right? Not if you read United Press International. Check out this factually misleading and horribly unprofessional headline:

AARP poll shows divide over public option

Word. Another 80% to 20% divide. It's like we're tearing ourselves down the middle. The side middle, also known as the edge, or the fringe middle.

Stay classy, UPI.
