East Timor rejects Gillard plan or does it?

"The decision to reject the proposal was unanimous among the 35 members of East Timor’s 65 person parliament who voted on the resolution".

Am I silly or something 35 out of 65  is not unanimous, it is a majority and how many members were in the parliament at the time of the vote. Could someone tell me.. come on, this is another example of making up a headline. A majority is not great news but a unanimous rejection, that's news.

Lets face it folks the news as we gets it, is massaged so much that we can't tell which bit is real anymore.

Maybe a real journalist will tell us the real story, even though it may be a bit boring wouldn't that be a shock.
