Good Example Of Bad Reporting

A classic example of bad reporting is making headlines today. In the latest issue of US Weekly, "a source close to the U.N. goodwill ambassador, 34, tells" the celebrity gossip mag that Angelina Jolie "hates" President Barack Obama for being "all smoke and mirrors".

This report automatically raises questions when the anonymous "source" later adds...

"She's into education and rehabilitation and thinks Obama is all about welfare and handouts. She thinks Obama is really a socialist in disguise,"

The quote raises questions as both Angelina Jolie as well as hubby Brad Pitt spend a great deal of time getting involved in politics --politics to which both last year and this year they have gone on the record supporting Obama. While Jolie, due to her being a UN Goodwill Ambassador, has been less vocal than Pitt regarding her support for President Obama, on one occasion Jolie even went so far as to say that while there are many issues to tackle, and he will need to surround himself with a good team, an Obama Administration would be good for her family.

In the end, we're calling this report false, as should you until the actress (and not an anonymous source with their own agenda) officially goes on the record.
