National news quick on Tom Delay’s conviction but ignore acquittal

  The national network news media, ABC, CBS, and NBC were quick to broadcast stories of the conviction of Tom Delay, which was news, but it would be fair to say that they should have been just as quick to broadcast his exoneration at the appellate court level – NOT! Excerpt: Back in 2010, when ex-House Majority Leader Tom DeLay was convicted on money laundering charges related to campaign fundraising, all three network morning and evening news shows made sure to tell their viewers. On their November 24, 2010 evening newscasts, all...

Not the “change” Obama supporters had “hoped” for

The following changes have taken place since January 9, 2009 to election day November 6, 2012. Gas Prices were $1.84 per gallon, now $3.69 per gallon, if you can even purchase gas in hurricane Sandy’s aftermath on the Eastern coast. Obviously FEMA is not doing any better after Sandy, than government did after Katrina in the South – no change or hope there. No attacks from the media about the administration, because it’s Obama not Bush! Unemployment was 7.8%, now 7.9% despite $800B stimulus spending and 24 million people out...

Political sign thieves are back for 2012 elections

It’s been two years, and the biennial tradition of stealing political signs is back in full force. This year, it doesn’t even matter with which party the candidate is affiliated, all the signs in our subdivision, which were small enough to fit in the trunk of a car were stolen. Two years ago this blog referred to a similar practice and asked the question, “What were they thinking?” Excerpt: It may be only petty larceny – the signs seldom cost the candidate more than a few bucks each, still it is someone...

Poll – Campaign contributions should be limited – Not!

Media continues to try to form public opinion on Freedom of Speech as defined by the Supreme Court in its 5-4 decision in Citizens United versus Federal Election Commission, which excluded independent spending limits on corporations and unions for political elections up to election day, calling it a constitutionally protected form of political speech. Excerpts from Rockford RegisterStar: More than 8 in 10 Americans in a poll by The Associated Press and the National Constitution Center support limits on the amount of money given to groups that...

Walker didn’t win because he outspent his opponent

Even after Governor Walker fended off the recall election, increasing his margin of victory by 60% over the election held 17 months ago, the media refused to acknowledge Walker’s decreased deficits, increased popularity and saving taxpayers millions of dollars. No, they reported that the reason Walker had won the recall election was that he had more money to spend than Milwaukee Mayor Barrett, money Walker had obtained only because of the recent Supreme Court decision, “Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission.”...
