The Washington Post had a page two article discussing the prospects for the renewal of the Bush tax cuts. In the middle of the piece it notes that many Democrats are supporting President Obama's plan to phase out the tax cuts for the wealthy, "given the gravity of the country's deficit problems."

The "gravity" of the country's deficit problems is the Post's invention, not something that either exists in the world or is attributed as an expressed concern by any of the actors discussed in the article. This sort of statement belongs on the opinion page, not in the news section.
