Reading the editorial page

Reading the editorials in the Dayton Daily News and i’ve come across a couple things.
1. Once again someone is telling us that the partial-birth abortion law has no exceptions for the mother. This is just untrue.
2. In an editorial lambasting the Bush adminstration for not having a clue as to what to expect in Iraq they say this:
“Last week, the Bush campaign–tired of being lambasted there by the mob of Democratic candidates–started running its own television commercials. Those ads said that the Democrats were criticizing the president for taking on the terrorists.” — DDN
The problem is that the Bush campaign didn’t run this ad. It was a Republican National Committee ad. As is said at the end of the ad:
“The Republican National Committee paid for and is responsible for the content of this advertising. Not authorized by any candidate or candidate committee.” — Herald Sun
The editorial pages are free to express whatever opinions they like, but it would be nice if they could at least get the facts straight.
