Are NPR, ABC using question headlines to push voter suppression conspiracy theories?

Is National Public Radio just trolling now? Not only does NPR engage in the sort of “violent rhetoric” they’d normally associate with Sarah Palin (“gunning to steal?”) — they pull a bait-and-switch on their followers. The tweet links to an article headlined, “No, Romney’s Son Is Not Gunning To Steal Ohio Vote By Rigging Voting Machines.”

So, where would readers get the idea that Tagg Romney was rigging voting machines? Well, from NPR, if they hadn’t heard that theory somewhere else already. And with one quick retweet, they can spread the conspiracy.

Not to be outdone, ABC followed suit with its own “decide for yourself” tweet gunning for True the Vote.

No. Is ABC going to cover the liberal hysteria over True the Vote? Or Benghazi?
