What media bias part 3,973

This AFP article headline reads, "Bush tars Iraq war protestors as isolationists," yet aside from the initial assertion, nowhere in the article, nor in the transcript of the press conference referenced, is the word isolationist, or anything remotely close, used. Apparently, they are basing this headline on the following quote:
"I think those who advocate immediate withdrawal from not only Iraq, but the Middle East, are advocating a policy that would weaken the United States," said Bush.
This isn't "tarring" anybody. I do not see how any reasonable person could draw that headline from this quote or any other quote in the transcript. Just one more example of the *spit* unbiased *spit* media hard at work.
