Default Obama gets scant white support in MS

Obama gets scant white support in MS

Quote:
Whites largely shunned Barack Obama in Mississippi's Democratic presidential primary on Tuesday as the Deep South showed once again its reluctance to embrace him across racial lines.

While 92 percent of blacks lined up behind the Illinois senator, 70 percent of whites supported Hillary Rodham Clinton, according to an exit poll of voters conducted for The Associated Press and the television networks.
Can AP create any more of a biased headline and first sentence?!?!...

30% of whites voted for Obama, yet 9 FRIGGIN PERCENT of blacks voted for Hillary...

Here what it SHOULD read if they wanted to be fair and point out the LESSER fact...

Quote:
Clinton gets less support from blacks than Obama does from whites in MS

Whites largely shunned Barack Obama in Mississippi's Democratic presidential primary on Tuesday, but blacks shunned Hillary Clinton EVEN MORE as the Deep South showed once again its reluctance to embrace him across racial lines.
I wonder if AP is actually on Obama's payroll or they're just doing it based on ideology...
