Watch the Liberal Media Spin!

One of the small geeky joys about old media meeting the Internet is to watch the little mistakes they make. One that has been mildly entertaining me recently is watching the edits of the New York Times exposed through an obscure feature of RSS feeds. If your newsreader supports it, you can see what was originally posted and then how it gets edited, sometimes rather revealingly. Well, one fellow who uses the same newsreader I do caught a great one. See if you can catch the unpatriotic, anti-American spin in action!

Original post, showing the U.S. cynically using “humanitarian aid” to play power politics:

U.S. Said to Shift Approach in Talks With North Korea

The U.S. is prepared to take a range of steps to aid North Korea, but inducements would be phased in slowly only as North starts surrendering its nuclear weapons.

Final, edited post, showing Bush personally having compassion on a suffering enemy:

U.S. Said to Shift Approach in Talks With North Korea

President Bush authorized negotiators to say last week that he is prepared to take a range of steps to aid the starving nation.

See it? See the terrible liberal bias, ruthlessly tearing down our President and our great government? C’mon, look harder!
