A January 22 Associated Press article reporting on New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson's (D) decision to form an exploratory committee to run for president in 2008 appeared in the New York Post under the headline: "N.M. Gov Throws Sombrero Into Ring." By contrast, the AP ran the following "N.M. governor enters White House race."

Richardson, whose mother was Mexican, is seeking to become the nation's first Hispanic president.

As Media Matters for America recently noted, a January 17 Manchester, New Hampshire, Union Leader editorial commenting on Sen. Barack Obama's (D-IL) decision to form a presidential exploratory committee carried the headline: "If Obama runs: Will he get affirmative action."
