McClatchy scrubs Bush-bashing headline from web site

Last night on McClatchy's web site was this screaming headline: "Who is to blame for Hamas' rise? Bush for one (of course)"

Today, the headline has been changed to: What helped the rise of Hamas? U.S., Israel policies, turns out

Fortunately, the original headline was caught. The full article -- along with the Bush-bashing headline -- has been cached here.

Anybody have an explanation?

By any chance did you take a screenshot or keep a cached version of the page (with original headline)? Funny, but Google doesn't show links to the cached versions in search results for McClatchy stories.

My guess is the nice corporate line up of control decided to change the headline to include Israel in the blame game.

Too bad McClatchy won't report on the Democratic mess up, such as Obama not turning over his birth certificate and coming clean with his secret life and relationships. But then again, what do you expect from a newspaper that is shared by the same corporations involved in the bailout scam?

Can't blame that one just on Bush. It took Congress to do that. (Dems and Republicans), yet the Liberal news media can't point the fingers at themselves. They fail to tell the public how Obama was seriously involved in the bail out scam, and what his links are to Freddie Mac.

I myself have a legal battle against the corporate giants whom are linked with McClatchy. I wrote about it here:

I didn't know who these people were back in 2003. I know now.

Cached page is here.

The "of course" part of the headline has me convinced Warren Strobel wrote his own headline.

Who's to blame for Hamas' rise? Bush, for one (of course)
Warren P. Strobel | McClatchy Newspapers
-----------------------
Warren P. Strobel writes more Bush hatred. Now, who would that surprise? McClatchy news has sunken lower than their stock is worth. Is that even possible?

When MNI hits goose eggs, they will probably become an alternative paper writing even lower underground sludge.

I think it may be a Ratherism that someone is so low, they have to look up to see the belly of a snake. Dan, that is Stobel in a nutshell. You hard-nosed news man you. Get Mary Mapes to research that missing ‘Bush’ headline.

Warren Strobel can't get the facts right when talking about his own life experiences. So who can trust him. But Shark Girl may be on to something about the headline being changed to include Israel in the blame game, too.

Of course Bush is to blame. Look at history.

Bush has been involved with the Jews since biblical times.

“And the angel of the LORD appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush:
and he looked, and, behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed.”
EXODUS 3:2

You don't see any mention of a burning Obama anywhere in the Bible, do you?
