Misleading CBS Headline - Obama On Paying For Benefits

When I saw this headline Obama Changes Tune on Paying for Unemployment Benefits Extension on Drudge, I thought that, finally, Obama was coming to his senses about the deficit and that the unemployment extension and all added pork would be funded by cuts in other expenditures.

My hopes were dashed after reading the article and finding that, he was not funding the bill, he just flip flopped from the previous extension, where he bragged about it being funded. I'm sure CBS knows that many people just read headlines and, therefore go away happy but misinformed. Don't you just love our liberal press?
