Editors Show Anti-Business, Pro-Protestor Liberal Bias

Why is it that the Fish Wrapper editors can't contain their liberal bias, even when it comes to business? They have to have some awareness of the fact that small businesses are some of the biggest drivers of Oregon's economy, and yet they matter little when it comes to liberal causes such as anti-fur protesters.

The case of Schumacher's Furs is a classic example. In their editorial on Saturday, the editors get in their last liberal shot at Schumacher's. The point in their multiple editorials was that Schumacher's themselves were mostly to blame - not the liberal moonbat protesters who harrassed customers outside of the store every Saturday, and who demonstrated that they care more about animals than human beings.

Dead Fish Wrapper Shows Its True Colors

It seems the Dead Fish Wrapper has again shown its true colors. The Snoregonian editorial staff wrote a piece in the January 13th issue titled "He picked a fight, and got one," about four firefighters and a paramedic who defended themselves and their co workers against Mr. DeGeorge, who threatend to and actually engaged in physical resistance with the police and firefighters.

At first glance, the Dead Fish Wrapper staff seem to be making sense, but then I actually spent a moment going over it and was blasted by the bright,glowing glare of thier hatred and hypocrisy that was hidden in the piece. About midway through the piece they ask why would anyone repeatedly and aggressively harass a group of fireman and medics trying to handle a medical call. I told myself "You're right!" Why would anyone do that?

Dead Fish Wrapper Twists Biased Poll To Promote Embryonic Stem Cell Research

As I pointed out in a long post yesterday, the Fish Wrapper editors continue to do their best to promote embryonic stem cell research, something that has yet to produce any results, even in light of new discoveries being made about the promise of adult stem cells.

One thing that I neglected to point out was how the Fish Wrapper (thanks to the AP), uses slanted poll results in a slanted manner to show their slanted point of view.

Continuing To Propagate The Lie That Is Embryonic Stem Cell Research

When it comes to stem cell research (as with other issues), the Fish Wrapper editors continue to display their burning desire to not let the facts get in the way of their opinions. They demonstrate this desire with today's editorial entitled Multiplying stem-cell research could boost healing all around.

This is not the first (and unfortunately won't be the last) time the DFW editors have trotted out this nonsense. In a similar editorial two days before the November elections, they published a piece about Michael J. Fox's deceitful ads for Claire McCaskill, who was running for the U.S. Senate from Missouri. As I explained in detail, there was no basis in fact for Fox's claims.

Focusing on Extraneous Characteristics Instead of Qualifications

I have yet to figure out why to many people - usually liberals - often times when evaluating someone for a position, it is much more important to focus on the race or gender of a person than on their qualifications.

I have seen it many times, in particular when people talk about the makeup of public safety agencies, or in sports leagues. We need more women, more blacks, more whatever - basically, anybody but white males. That is much more important than the person's qualifications.

Even though it is illegal to discriminate against people based on their race, gender, and other characteristics, for some reason that doesn't stop people from using that as a criteria.

DFW Editors Contradict Themselves About Meaning of Christmas

When I opened up the Opinion section on Christmas Eve to the editorial page, I almost had to pick myself up up off the floor. As one of the editorials, under the title of "The birth of Jesus according to Luke", was the entire text of Luke 2:1-19 (KJV); nothing more, nothing less. It was a pleasant surprise. But, my pleasant surprise was short lived, because on Christmas day, the editors apparently forgot what they had published the day before and wrote about the "real" meaning of Christmas: family and friends.

Fish Wrapper Continues To Extol Useless Iraq Study Group Report and Condemn Israel

When it comes to Israel, why is the liberal position always that Israel must give in to what useless organizations like the U.N. want, which is for Israel to basically quit defending itself, and now to sit down and talk with its neighbors? This is aptly demonstrated again today by the Fish Wrapper editors in their editorial Gaza chaos drives peace hopes backward. In a piece that is mostly about how the U.S. must find "some way" to negotiate peace in Gaza, the DFW editors continue to pound two points from the now-seen-as-useless Iraq Study Group report.

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.

Afraid To Say That Arab Muslims Are Slaughtering Thousands In Darfur

It is amazing to me how when it comes to labeling or identifying people, the only time it's really done by the MSM is when they want to point out that conservatives are guilty of something; if it's a liberal that's guilty, they tend to leave off the Democrat or liberal label. It's even to the point where the MSM won't even say that Arab Muslims are slaughtering hundreds of thousands of innocents in the Darfur region of Sudan.

Today's case in point is an editorial entitled "A new secretary-general, a new day on Darfur". It is about the new U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, and his comments last week about the situation in Darfur.

Pushing the Liberal Agenda of Universal Health Care

As is typical of most liberals, the Dead Fish Wrapper thinks that more and more government is always the solution to all of society's problems. They have been demonstrating this lately on more than one occasion. The first is an editorial touting a new "framework" for a universal health care system in Oregon as reported by the Fish Wrapper. And, as usual, the editors gloss over important facts while pushing the hype:
