Headline Deception: What did Lisa Murkowski Really Say on the Bolton Matter?


I really do like the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner and read it every once in a while as I lived in Fairbanks for a few years as a child and visited there a few years ago as the President’s Lecturer at the University of Alaska at Fairbanks.
But the headline in a Sam Bishop article today is really off base. The headline should have been “Murkowski Investigating Further on Bolton” or “Murkowski Not Done with Own Bolton Inquiry” or “Murkowski Unsure on Bolton Until Investigation Completed.”
But what we got was: “Murkowski Reaffirms Support for Bolton.”
Maybe I’m off base, but you read the article and tell me whether or not others understand the article as I read it: Murkowski is still investigating.
