‘WHAT A FREAKIN’ LIE’! Reuters, Yahoo busted for bogus headline about Obama at border [pics]; Update: Headline changed, still wrong; Update: Slideshow goes missing

President Obama really gets around. After all, those funds aren’t gonna raise themselves! In a short span of time this week, the president has spent time in Denver, Dallas, and Austin, where he’s shot pool and raised money for the DSCC, DCCC, and DNC.

But if you ask Reuters, he’s been busy at “the border”:

President Obama visits the border

That photo was taken in Denver. As in, Colorado. As in, not even a border state.

Scroll through Reuters’ slideshow posted at Yahoo! News, and you’ll see pictures Obama in several places — none of which could remotely be considered “the border”:

Lapdogs gonna lapdog!

Editor’s note: The original lead tweet has been replaced for clarity.

Update:

Yahoo! News has quietly changed the headline:

President Obama visits Austin

President Obama visits Austin

Unfortunately, the new headline still accompanies photos from Denver and Dallas. So … still wrong, Yahoo! News.

Oh, and the URL still says “border”:

Obama visits the border URL

Whoops.

Update:

Evidently Yahoo! News decided it would just be easier to do away with the slideshow altogether. Clicking on the original link will now take you to other Obama slideshows, like these:
