Washington Times: Stingy With The Truth

The Washington Times carried a story today with the headline:

U.N. official slams U.S. as 'stingy' over aid

I found the link, with that headline, on Drudge. The story was by Bill Sammon, and in the third paragraph we find where the U.N. official "slams" the U.S. (Bolds are mine.):

"But U.N. Undersecretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs Jan Egeland suggested that the United States and other Western nations were being "stingy" with relief funds, saying there would be more available if taxes were raised.

"It is beyond me why are we so stingy, really," the Norwegian-born U.N. official told reporters. "Christmastime should remind many Western countries at least, [of] how rich we have become."

NewScrewer Says: Bill Sammon, Matt Drudge...YOU are the true news screwers. I bow before thee.
