……………. you are asked to provide an example of liberal media bias, here’s a good one. The following is a selection from the New York Times’ official obituary of Gerald R. Ford.
“Ronald Reagan's state funeral in 2004 was the first since Lyndon B. Johnson died in 1973. With Ford’s death, there are now just three living former presidents: Jimmy Carter, 82, who succeeded Ford; George H.W. Bush, 82, father of the current president who served 1989-93; and Bill Clinton, 60, who served two terms before George W. Bush was inaugurated following the disputed 2000 election and a 5-4 Supreme Court decision decision in his favor.”
Working a political attack into an obituary is quite a feat. In light of examples like this, can one seriously argue that the liberal education and media establishments are ever silent? In reality, the liberal establishment is constantly working an increasingly dangerous angle in an effort to frame the public debate. While it is difficult for the average Republican to conceive of a Presidential obituary as an opportunity to undermine a political enemy such thoughts come naturally to an institution that now exists only as a propaganda device for the far left.
………………… the new Democrat majority is laying the groundwork for even more tax increases. It looks like Iowa road funds are running out of money and where else would the Democrats turn but you, the Iowa taxpayer?
Good to know that they are looking toward good government as a solution to the State’s fiscal problems.
