non-smoking newspaper, capricorn, seeks 50-ish feminist for possible romance

By Diogenes (articles ) | Dec 10, 2005

Female, Agnostic and the Next Presidente? runs a front-page headline in today's Washington Post. The article concerns a candidate in Chile's presidential election. Here's the lede:

SANTIAGO, Chile -- Everyone in the audience was dressed in dark blue or black. Some wore clerical collars, and most had heavy silver crosses dangling around their necks. But Michelle Bachelet wore an electric pink jacket that sent a clear message: She was a candidate for president, not sainthood.

Cute.

Objective, fact-centered, professional journalism never descends to partisanship, of course, but if you had to guess, would you say the general tone of the article was favorable or unfavorable toward Bachelet? No fair peeking.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    Chile seems determined to repeat its mistakes, I guess.

    Not like the article had any relevant policy discussions... ...of course, the reporters didn't stoop to pulling out the red hairing and mentioning that one of her opponents is in the Opus Dei. I'm sure that was a editorial snafu...
