One of these things is not like the others

Remember the Sesame Street game? We see four objects, a mop, a broom, a push-broom and a police car and it poses the question, "which one of these things is not like the others?"

Well how bout this little bit of equivalence in the Seattle Post Intelligencer:

This so-called "kinship care" is the largely unseen fallout from a confluence of social problems -- parental drug addiction, incarceration, mental illness and, more recently, military service -- that have left about 2.3 million children in the United States raised by their relatives, mainly grandparents.

So we have four "social problems" as contributing factors to "kinship care," right?

I know that pointing out the media bias is old and boring and ho hum, but sometimes it creeps into the strangest places. I don't think Americans care if there is a slant to their news, they just prefer to have the "journalists" admit their own agendas...
