Writing About Helms

How, pray tell, does an AIDS program "promote homosexuality"?

From an AP story tonight on Jesse Helms, which refers politely to his opposition to civil rights but leaves out the uglier stuff.

In the debate over reauthorizing a domestic AIDS program, Helms tried but failed to prohibit any money from being used to promote homosexuality.

There is already considerable complaining on the blogs about TV news stories tagging Helms as a conservative while glossing over his racial remarks and actions.
