    wELP, seems so :) :)

    I clicked on the tag and got this pithy example English teachers could use of very slightly masked biased writing:

    The city of Nashville, Tennessee has decided that it will not become an English-only city. Yesterday, voters there gave a thumbs-down to a proposal – called “English First” – that proponents say would have not only united the city but saved money. It would have mandated that the government there conduct its daily affairs in English.

    Opponents say becoming an English-only city could have given Nashville a “bad reputation.”

    Lots of these kinds of folks won’t understand the inconsistency between being for such things and “wanting a small government.”

    Yeah, xious, they read almost the exact same thing on the Today Show this morning, and I thought it seemed like an inaccurate at best, biased at worst, summary. The opposition argument was a lot more than worrying about our reputation! But since it failed (yay!) I’m willing to let it go.
