Today Buries Iraqi 78% 'Yes' Vote Amid Storms, Bombs and Stranded Dolphins

October 25th, 2005 9:37 AM

I'm on the road this week, but a quick take from this morning's Today.

As it did the day after the Iraqi referendum, Today buried the story today that, with tabulations completed, 78% of Iraqis voted in favor of adopting the proposed new constitution.

At least 10 x more time was accorded to yet more car bombings in Baghdad, Hurricane Wilma and storms in the Northeast. Even the story of some stranded dolphins merited several times more airtime than the Iraqi vote, not to mention some sympathetic tongue-clucking by Katie.

Such are the skewed priorities of our MSM.
