How to tweak a headline, right wing style.

Without being called an extremist, or if anybody does you can call him a paranoid or otherwise mentally ill “conspiracy theorist”.
From The Atlanta Examiner:
“AARP members bash Obamacare”.
This mirrors a similar “Shocking” headline Fox did last year when about 1% of the AARP membership left the organization in a huff and on a TeaBag high-horse because AARP endorsed Health Care Reform.<=The proper name.
But, with the term "AARP members" and not specifying how many, what percentage of the overall membership, or noting that AARP has members from every political party in America including Anarchists, you could get any two AARP members to say they don't like Health Care and would prefer the alternative, a murderous system of killing elderly, disabled and poor AMERICANS through organized, explicit and consistent Denial of Health Care by the so-called "free" market. And with those two voices you can get "AARP members bash Obamacare". Get 10 to say they want to keep the old Murderous system and you get "A group of seniors say they don't want to have Health Care".
Have them organize and you get "Senior Advocacy Group says they'd rather be taken out and abandoned on an ice floe, while their tribe rows away from them singing traditional songs"

Have a disabled or Senior AMERICAN say that being left to die and rot sucks, and you get "oh, you're just a paranoid delusional conspiracy theory whiner".
Get more people saying that maybe denying people health care and therefore life and you can say "Socialist Cult of Conspiracy Theorists advance crazy notion that denying health care equals murder".

There you have it, in a Right Wing "Nut" shell.
