Yahoo! Lies, Americans Die

Here's the headline on Yahoo's home page:

Jury convicts Salvadoran immigrant of killing Chandra Levy

Here's what's in the body of the AP story:

Ingmar Guandique was convicted of first-degree murder for attacking Levy while she exercised in Washington's Rock Creek Park in May 2001.

Investigators eventually focused on Guandique, an illegal immigrant from El Salvador, and brought formal charges last year. Prosecutors acknowledged they had little direct evidence but said Levy's death fit a pattern of other crimes committed by Guandique in the park.

Let's define our terms, shall we?

Definitions of immigrant:

•a person who comes to a country where they were not born in order to settle there;

•Someone who has become a lawful permanent resident

Definition of illegal immigrant:

•A person who enters and lives in a country in violation of that country's laws.

Yahoo intentionally used the wrong word in their headline leading to the story of Chandra Levy's murderer. They deliberately chose to mislead the reading public about the facts of this case, because the facts did not fit Yahoo's preferred narrative, which is essentially "open borders". Rather than open their minds about the logic and wisdom of allowing millions of undocumented illegal aliens to become American citizens, they attempted to change the facts, in an attempt to bend reality to their worldview.

Amazing that a news service would actually deliberately lie to a public that comes to them for information in order to keep them in the dark about the results of government policies - policies, of course, that Yahoo supports.

Of course, there is recourse here - simply ignore Yahoo news stories, and do not use their web portal to search and surf.

F*ck you, Yahoo. Come to me when you've discovered a shred of decency...

UPDATE 958PM: Well, that was quick. Story has vanished off the Yahoo home page, now buried within their US news page with a different headline - actually, the one the AP used originally: Man in past jogger attacks guilty of Levy slaying.

But why no0 mention of his immigration status, especially as the issue is part of a huge national debate? Gee, if the guy was caught with a Gadsden flag, do you think that would have made the headline? Just asking...
