Our friends at Politico who put it together departed WP as staff to launch the site which, was to be as Cain says, chocolate and vanilla, middle of the road balanced. It launched appearing to be just that. The the elections began and that scoop of vanilla simply melted. It was difficult to believe WP people could ever roll on their true religion.
Everybody’s seen the numbers, even so they make the case in simple fashion. We have held onto them because our intention was not to compete with the breaking news crowd but use them to make a point. Between Oct 3oth and Nov 6th Politico posted more than 90 stories on the Cain sex scandal during the first five days. We covered that. By the end of the week they had some 140 stories relating to him.
Contrast that with their 3 stories on Fast and Furious. More balanced in coverage they posted 9 pieces on Solyndra.
Today WP headlined a key element of the Solyndra scandal, quite surprising, the fact that they were pressured by the regime to hold off their layoffs report until after the midterm election: “Department of Energy pushed Solyndra to keep layoffs quiet until after midterm elections”. Obama and his minions did not want that dirt on their records before people went to the polls.
We held off posting this early, there was no such article on the Politico site this morning. It’s now 6PM EST and still nothing. We must conclude that if they go with it the plan is a nighttime or weekend dump. Again, if they report it.
We have been told Media Matters has been endorsing Politico. I truly do not care what their position is, it’s a free world, read what you want to read. When others condemn perspectives which vary from theirs, to the extent that they want them ‘exterminated’, one must redefine that free world. All we have left is our rights.
