Nice Scare Quotes

I love a good scare quote in a news report that is supposed to be unbiased. Let's turn our attention to page 4A and the story headlined "President's budget draws frowns in D.C." Five words into the story and the "reporter" makes his feelings known by categorizing the budget as "Lean," the quotes are his and appear in the original report. Don't even get me started on the headline. Am I supposed to believe that everyone in D.C. frowned at the President's budget; that not one smirk was to be found? The headline makes clear that even the President frowned at his own budget.
First, the SAEN is out to undermine Bush's social security plan. Now they're out to undermine his budget. If these guys aren't on the payroll of the DNC, they're getting gypped.
