HILARIOUS: Detroit Newsistan Gives Us Freudian Headline of the Day

By Debbie Schlussel
As I’ve repeatedly noted, The Detroit Newsistan is the only major newspaper in the country, whose editorial page editor (Nolan Finley) gives an agent of Hezbollah and the Government of Iran a regular column in which to spew his hate and propaganda in the name of “diversity” (what–no, David Duke?).
I had a good laugh, this morning, as I quickly paged through the usual thin (in reporting, substance, and tangible thickness) hard copy of today’s Detroit Newsistan. Here’s why–nope, it’s not a photoshop:



While I was not surprised (I previously exposed a whole, fabricated story by Newsistan “reporter” David Shepardson–the paper is not interested in accuracy), it was fun to catch the Newsistan in yet another of its many flubs.
With drowning circulation, how long until it goes out of business?
**** UPDATE: One clever reader says that the mistaken headline should have said, “Obama, Osama Meet to Discuss Unity.” Given Obama’s proposed Iranian policy, I’d say that’s not off-base.

You have to be kidding. This headline is real? Where can I get a copy? It will be priceless on Ebay one day. Considering Detroit/Deerbornistan’s myriad connections with jihad that the “good people” of those towns try to ignore and deny, this is just too much.

Oh Debbie… I’m sure he meant Obama… but I wonder – can you really tell the difference between them? The MSM doesn’t think there is one and that is revealing.

Maybe it’s just me but, I don’t see anything wrong with that headline.

No doubt wishfully hoping for the Caliphate.

My wife loves Ziggy, so that’s an additional reason for me to pick up the Detroit News today (the News carries Ziggy). Absolutely hilarious.
Maybe Obama should Americanize his name…you know, go from Barack Hussein Obama Jr. to Barry Henry Oldman.

I bet they’ll just blame the typesetter whose name is “Hassen bin Sober”

I think he should Americanize his name to Oreo Wannabe Dicklick. I think the Newsistan did get it right.

Debbie, thanks for the laugh. That headline is hilarious!
Hey 1Shot:
What does Oreo Wannabe mean? Does that mean the guy wants to be white? He’s as white as he is black. If you want to know why he identifies with African Americans, comments like that are the reason why. People like you will never think of someone who looks like Obama as white, even if he is as genetically European as he is African. That’s the answer for why mixed race people don’t think of themselves as white, because whites won’t let them.
People should stick to his issues and proposed policies, there’s more than enough reason not to vote for him based on that. Things like amnesty for illegals, unrealistic withdrawal proposals for Iraq, bigger government. His race has nothing to do with it.

Hey Staypositive,
Does a little humor bother you? Get over your tightass and get with the program. Want to stick to issues? OK, he has no experience, he’s a two-faced lying pretty boy who wants to sit down and talk with the very minions who are trying to wipe us off the map, and, having no military experience he wants to tell us how to handle Iraq. That’s just a few for openers. Oh yeah, let’s not forget the racist puke who’s congregation he was a staunch member of for so many yers but, when it came back to expose him for the racist he is, he tries to sneak out the back door.
I suggest you stick to the issues and race has NOTHING to do with my comments pal!

When has Barack Obama ever referred to himself as a white man? I’ve heard him talk about his white mother and his typical white grandmother, but he always refers to himself as a black man. Why wouldn’t I think of him as black?

Just read that Tribune papers are cutting staff nationwide along with taking up “newspace” with more pictures. These papers are practically like reading the supermarket tabloids now; they are a combination of tabloid with a little PC. The biggest joke is misnaming your local paper as the Detroit “News”. Good riddance to all of them.

Hey 1shot:
You’re a pig. Pigs get slaughtered.

Audacious on June 6, 2008 at 5:47 pm

Audacious: nobody’s getting slaughtered, especially not by you. You’ve been reading too many of No Pasaran’s online fantasies again.

DocLiberty on June 7, 2008 at 6:54 pm

To the “clever reader” who suggested the alternate headline: Your wish is my command!

Macker on June 8, 2008 at 10:29 am

Obama kind of looks like Osama with a shaved head and no beard… maybe we’ve found Osama afterall.
