Quick To Identify Republicans, But Always Willing To Cover For Democrats

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.

Duin On The Global Warming Hype Machine Again

Well, I'm back in the saddle again, and it looks like some things never change. In this case, it is the way the Dead Fish Wrapper continues to pound the drum of environmental armageddon that is going to happen to us because the Earth's temperature has increased slightly. Today's example is Steve Duin's column "Stuck in denial as the river runs dry". I won't replicate the whole thing here, but the basic gist is that if we continue down the road we are going environmentally, then all is lost, but if we take control of the climate (as it is so easy for man to do), then things will be better.

Fish Wrapper Neglects To Tell Whole Story About Senate Resolution Against War

The Fish Wrapper reporters continue to demonstrate their ability to tell only one side of a story in order to paint conservatives in a bad light. Today's example is a piece by Jeff Kosseff about a national TV ad being put out by the liberal moonbats at MoveOn.org. The ad are targeted at eight senators, including Gordon Smith, who voted against cloture on a non-binding resolution against the war in Iraq.

What Kosseff (and of course, the MoveOn ads) fails to disclose is the reason the Republicans voted that way. As detailed at TimesWatch in an article about the New York Times coverage of the vote, there is another side to the story:

Another Biased Story Favoring Global Whining (Warming) Proponents

Today's display of liberal bias by the Dead Fish Wrapper has to do with that favorite liberal topic of Global Warming. The tool for displaying it is an article about a debate on global warming.

Tonight at OMSI, George Taylor and Philip Mote will debate global warming and its causes. Taylor is the head of the Oregon Climate Service, and Mote is the state climatologist in Washington state.

Tha article actually starts out pretty evenhanded.

Steve Duin Conveniently Obscures Facts About Nike and Taxes

The other day when I read Steve Duin's column about Nike and how few taxes it pays, something just didn't seem right about it, but I didn't have the time to research it. Fortunately, I don't have to. Michael McBride (aka My Sandmen) has a great column about the hit piece at Townhall.com.

The point of Duin's column was that Nike supposedly supports local schools by making donations, but due to lobbying efforts, pays very little corporate income tax, thereby shorting the local schools of tax revenue.

Condemning Christianity and Being Hypocritical At The Same Time

Today, Stephen Beaven of the Dead Fish Wrapper manages to kill two birds with one stone: promoting the homosexual agenda and hammering Christians (labeled as "fudamentalists" in the article) in one article, all (of course) under the guise of journalism. This week the Fish Wrapper is doing a series of articles on people "who experienced a big life change this year." The other three articles are on:

  • A man who charted dramatic weight loss
  • An immigrant who returns to college
  • A supermarket manager who became a teacher

Today's article - entitled Lesbian teen sees activism as "my job" - is about a senior at Cleveland High School named Sasha Villareal.

Glossing Over Bad Traits Good For Liberals, But Not For Conservatives

As I was reading the article and editorial in the Fish Wrapper about the death and legacy of Ted Hallock, a former state senator who was the primary force behind SB 100 in 1973, I couldn't help but notice how the Fish Wrapper tends to gloss over negatives about a person if they're a liberal, but watch out if you're a conservative.

For instance, from the editorial:

A lot of people remember Hallock as quick-minded, passionate and, at times, sharp-tongued. In his prime and beyond he brimmed with energy and ideas. Those traits made him a force for 20 years in the Oregon Senate.
