Seriously... isn't this headline just a TAD biased?

From CNN's homepage - GOP lawmaker: Stop Sudan 'genocide'

From the actual article:
"A bipartisan congressional delegation, accompanied by an Oscar-nominated actor, urged the United States and the international community Thursday to take action to end the war in the Darfur region of Sudan.

On the mission with Royce and Cheadle were Democratic Reps. Jim McDermott of Washington, Barbara Lee and Diane Watson of California, and Betty McCollum of Minnesota.
