Oregonian Continues to Impress

As I was reading my printed copy of the venerated Oregonian this morning I was delighted to see an article on page B-3 talking about how Oregon's unemployment rate was the lowest since mid-2001...read that as just after GWB took over, and right after the false growth period under Clinton was popping. Hmmm, I say to myself, this is good news, why is it so far back in the paper? Shouldn't this be on the front page? Maybe I should see what kept this great story about the economy, a story that predicts 8.5% growth in the next year, and double digit growth beyond that, off the front page.

The link to today's Oregonian is provided here http://www.oregonlive.com/oregonian/ftp/Monday-A1.pdf ...here is the great lead article about horse training, a good piece about troop deaths in Iraq, the Bush visit to Russia, tribe influence in the NW, and the stunner...OSU develops new glue from mussels. I can see wehre they ran out of room for good news. Geez, how can double digit economic growth compare to mussel glue anywho?

For the fiftieth time...the MSM doesn't get it...they will collapse because they cannot figure out how to take their prejudices out of the process. Good news on the economy...hide it. In fact, my searching on the on-line edition could not turn up the same story. At the very worst GWB has maneuvered us through one of the most challenging economic situations in our history...like him or not, and you don't HAVE to give him the credit he deserves for it, but you have to put the "news" where it belongs...not somewhere behind mussels and horses. The Titanic is sinking, and I doubt it can be saved. The band is playing, and the stern is starting to rise ...

If they don't reform, maybe one day you'll have a larger readership than theirs.

Maybe they don't know how to tame their bias, but it's more likely they're just not interested in being objective truth-tellers.

They have a mission, and The Oregonian is the instrument they have to pursue their agenda.

Reminds me of when Bush was running for President against Gore - Clinton, of course, was still in office. One evening my husband and I were watching the news and several commentators were talking about our economy being in a recession.

I told my husband, "You watch, if Bush wins the election, even though the recession is being reported TODAY - months before Bush ever winning, the media and the leftist democrats will place the blame on Bush."

Sure enough - the MSM reported the recession was a disaster of the Bush Administration. Kind of like the MSM's reporting of national unemployment rates. Under Clinton, 5.5% unemployment was reported in a positive light. Under Bush, the SAME publications were saying 5.5% national unemployment was a disaster.

The hypocrisy of the mainstream media and their socialist friends in the democratic party no longer amazes me. Sadly, I've come to expect it. Bury the good news or spin good news into bad - just make sure that ALL news fits their agenda.

I have repeatedly sent emails to CNN complaining about this very issue to no avail.
