Define Unanimous

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram is at again. And the readers they have left are paying the price.

There are several definitions online for "unanimous"

1. Sharing the same opinions or views; being in complete harmony or accord.
2. Based on or characterized by complete assent or agreement.
 3. Unanimously - of one mind; without dissent.

The ST said the Water Board voted "unanimously" to give the Trinity River Vision millions of your dollars.

Seeing how Mary Kelleher abstained from voting on this ridiculous money/land grab, does that really make for a unanimous vote?  True, she didn't vote "nay".  But is leading your readers to believe she voted "yay", the best way to run a business or educate the public?

We didn't think so either.

If they didn't tell you the whole story here, what else are they leaving out?  Wouldn't YOU like to know?
