Using the word 'since' to link unrelated events and thus imply causality eg 'there have been thirty earthquakes in Peru since Bush was elected' implies the reason for the earthquakes is Bush being in power. This tactic is commonly used by broadcasters, like the BBC, to get past allegations of bias.
The BBC is sincing Obama by suggesting there have been 23,000 murders since he annouced he was running for President.
