A Tale of Two Headlines

Rick Moran
As seen on Memeorandum, two articles on the same story with radically different headlines.

The articles are on a Gallup poll asking the question whether Bush era policies in the war on terror should be investigated.

From Gallup:

No Mandate for Criminal Probes of Bush Administration


From USA Today:


Poll: Most want inquiry into anti-terror tactics

Huh?

Here are the numbers - you decide:

The poll is skewed heavily to the left on the criminal investigation question because liberals, almost to a man, want to see Bush in jail. I find it interesting that a clear majority do not want criminal investigations - unexpected given all the rancid rhetoric from the left for 8 years.

Technically, both headlines are correct. But do you think there is any bias at USA Today when the poll shows a majority against criminal probes?
