I laughed a few days ago when MSNBC had a headline "Does Obama get a free ride from the press?"
But now, I have a new theory. If a headline contains the word Obama, MSNBC.com is forced to place it on their homepage.
Here's a sampling from right now:

I'm really surprised they didn't cross-pop the health ones into the health category, the cable car one into travel. Maybe he has an opinion on American Idol for the Entertainment category or something about Wimbledon for the sports category.
