What's Missing from This Story?
The Associated Press reports:
Republican Fundraisers Off to Fast Start The Republican National Committee raised $13.7 million in January, getting off to a fast start for this midterm election year. That was the most raised in any one month since the 2004 election year, GOP officials said. The RNC, which has been outraising the Democratic National Committee by a 2-1 margin, reported Friday that it had nearly $39 million cash on hand at the end of January.The story, which the headline tells us is all about Republican fundraising, drags in Democratic fundraising for the purposes of telling us the Republicans are raising more than the Democrats. Uh, dog bites man. It misleads by omitting the man-bites-dog detail that 2-1 is a significant decrease in the fundraising advantage. What liberal media?
