Just making stuff up

This may shock some people, but it looks like the NY Times – the “Paper of Record” – might have shaded the truth a little bit today:

While the polls fluctuate, the Democratic National Committee is keeping the lights on with minimal buying in some states - notably Colorado, where polls now show Mr. Kerry running strong, and Missouri - to make it easier for Mr. Kerry to re-enter later.
Huh? “Running strong?” If the Times is trying to suggest that Kerry is surprisingly competitive in Colorado, it should say so. Instead, that line gives the impression that Senator Splunge is leading in the Rockies, when he most definitely is not.
