Dishonest news headlines. They're great for clickbait and for stirring up the pot.
For example, Huckabee compares being gay to drinking, swearing.
Technically true. The guy's pretty averse to gay marriage, etc. And there's some truth to this particular headline. But what it seems to try to imply is bullshit.
See the bolded.
So, the headline could also read "Huckabee compares being gay to listening to classical music." Or, you know, "Huckabee: People do stuff that I don't do sometimes, such as the whole 'being gay' thing.""People can be my friends who have lifestyles that are not necessarily my lifestyle. I don't shut people out of my circle or out of my life because they have a different point of view," Huckabee told CNN's Dana Bash, while deflecting a question about whether he believes being gay is a choice.
"I don't drink alcohol, but gosh -- a lot of my friends, maybe most of them, do. You know, I don't use profanity, but believe me, I've got a lot of friends who do. Some people really like classical music and ballet and opera -- it's not my cup of tea," Huckabee said.
Any personal favorite dishonest headlines? Even those from radical sources count. This thread's not necessarily about this particular headline, but I think it's a good example.
