Fish Wrapper Ignores Dems Pork Overflow in Emergency Spending Bill For Troops

The Dead Fish Wrapper editorial board never ceases to amaze me with their ability to filter out relevant information in order to show only the liberal side of an issue, and today they give a classic example.

DFW and AP Conveniently Forget Murtha Is True King Of Pork

Once again, the AP chooses to point fingers at Republicans whenever possible and conveniently forget that Democrats are even worse. Today's case in point is an article about the Democrats effort to cover unfinished spending bills that were left by the departing Republican leaders. As part of this process, they will be removing billions of dollars in earmarks that were attached to different bills. In the process of explaining the situation, they get it some shots at Republicans.
