Steve | China, Frank Fromhertz, Opinion

I thought I had seen some bad babbling pieces in the Daily Dead Fish Wrapper, but the one I read today takes the cake. Frank Fromhertz writes about how we can supposedly learn from China and how we should hold a "universal view".

Like a big but distant river, China had enchanted my
imagination for decades. Finally, at age 50, I was heading
there. But what would I learn?

Steve | Global Warming, Ignored Stories, IPCC, John R. Christy, Nobel Peace Prize, Wall Street Journal

As most people who don't read just the Daily Dead Fish Wrapper know, more and more scientists - credentialed scientists who really know what they're talking about - have been coming forward to speak out against the global warming hype. The most recent scientist is to speak out is John Christy, director of the Earth System Science Center at the University of Alabama at Huntsville, and a member of the IPCC. He states his opinion in the Wall Street Journal today that not only is it not a proven fact that global warming is human caused, but he is refusing his "share" of the Nobel prize because it is based on a misunderstanding of science.

Steve | Craig Franklin, Ignored Stories, Jena 6

In all the publicity over the so called Jena 6 case in Jena, Louisiana, where 6 black boys laid in wait for and ganged up on one white boy with an excuse of racism, the truth was not reported. Typical useless, self-serving blowhards like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton went to Jena to march against this "racism", and a lot of publicity was generated. However, in the style of the Duke Lacrosse rape case, the truth was very different than what was portrayed in the media.

Steve | 2007 California Wildfires, Barbara Glass, CNN, Ignored Stories, Iraq

Here's another story from Iraq that the Daily Dead Fish Wrapper will be sure to ignore, because it isn't bad news. While the MSM has been quick to hype as many negative things about the California wildfires and blame them on global warming and the Bush administration, there are good stories to report. As reported by CNN (h/t Noel Sheppard):

Iraqi soldiers donate $1,000 for wildfire aid

(CNN) -- The Iraqi leadership at a military camp east of Baghdad gave the U.S. military a $1,000 check last week to aid victims of California's wildfires, the U.S. military said.

Steve | ACORN, Ignored Stories, Seattle Times, Voter Fraud

On Monday, as reported by the Seattle Times, three workers for the far left elections group ACORN pled guilty to one of the largest cases of voter fraud in Washington history (h/t Michelle Malkin).

Three of seven defendants in the biggest voter-registration fraud scheme in Washington history have pleaded guilty and one has been sentenced, prosecutors said Monday.

Steve | Allan Brettman, Metro, Richard Curtis

Yet another method the the Daily Dead Fish Wrapper uses to display its bias is picking and choosing when to identify the political party affiliation of someone who has been accused of a crime. The rules are simple: if it's a Republican, make sure and highlight the party affiliation immediately, but if the person is a Democrat, either don't mention that at all or bury it very deep in the story.

This tendency can be easily illustrated with three separate articles. They are about Richard Curtis, a Washington state Representative. He had sex with another man that he had met at an erotic video store. He went to the police when the man tried to extort money from him, which was when his story came out.

Steve | Ignored Stories, Media Bias, Project for Excellence in Journalism

A new study of the media and its coverage of the 2008 elections so far was recently released by the Project for Excellence in Journalism at Harvard (hardly a bastion of conservatism). The results are not (or at least shouldn't be, unless you've been living under a rock for a few years) surprising for anybody who pays any attention to the MSM: media coverage is heavily slanted towards Democrats.

As reported by Terry Trippany:

Steve | Ignored Stories, London Daily Mail, Socialism, Universal Health Care

As those who have read the Fish Wrapper for any amount of time know, universal health care is one of the favorite socialist topics they like to promote. After all, wouldn't it be great if we could pay higher taxes to have the government provide all of our health care? Not really. One typical feature of socialized medicine that the liberal socialists like to ignore is the long waiting time for care. People in Britain are tired of dealing with it, so, as written about in the Daily Mail, they are fleeing to other countries for better health care.

Steve | Anna Griffin, Cesar Chavez, Front, Interstate Avenue

As most people in Portland are aware, a hot issue in Portland lately has been the attempt by Tom Potter to change the name of Interstate Avenue in NE portland to Cesar Chavez Boulevard. For some reason, he didn't anticipate the response he got when he tried to ram it down everybody's throats. There were heated community meetings, and when a couple of the city commissioners started talking about alternatives, Potter stormed out of a City council meeting last Thursday in anger.

Steve | Center For Climate Strategies, Global Warming, Ignored Stories, Paul Chesser, Seattle Post-Intelligencer

As Governor Teddy has demonstrated before, he is very willing to destroy Oregon's economy to try to control something we can't control, and he is willing to try to silence those who dare to disagree with him. But another question is, where does the funding come from? If a conservative dares to speak out against the GW hype, he is immediately accused of being on the payroll of Big Oil. But what about the other side? Where does the funding and information come from for the draconian policies that liberals want to force on us?
