"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

That's how biased reporting works. If 50% of the population supports something the liberal-leaning media supports it is called solid support or a majority. If it is something they oppose, say school vouchers, it becomes mixed support. Of course there is the added bonus here of ignoring and distorting a few things. There has never been any intimation that money will be taken from public schools as a result of the vouchers, in fact the amount given in the vouchers is often a good deal less than what is paid per student in the public schools leaving more in the system per student. Also they do give us the poll numbers for those most affected by school vouchers. Namely inner city and minority familes who support vouchers usually by a 4-1 margin.
