You decide. Two examples to consider.
The trash can liner published an article earlier headed, "OP-ED| Dream Act: Best policy for Maryland." Written by -- you won't be surprised -- Curtis Valentine is executive director of MarylandCAN. Gustavo Torres is executive director of CASA de Maryland") with a photo by Juana Arias, it argues why taxpayers should eat the bill to send children of illegals (who should also be illegal, were it not for our country's insane anchor baby citizenship) to college.
This is an opinion piece, and as outrageous as it may be, the Post has every right to publish it. When I read it earlier, though, the editors apparently had a problem on their hands -- thousands of comments expressing disgust with the paper toadying to illegals. Now, you can hardly read the comments, let alone publish one, since the section (as of this writing) makes you wait endlessly while it loads.
You want to tell me the main paper in the nation's capital, long owned by millionaires (plus a few small-time investors dumb enough to put any of their capital into the money-losing company), can't afford the bandwidth to permit readers to respond or read the responses conveniently? Yeah, right.
Item the second: "In Petersburg, black voters just as focused — if not as vocal — as in ’08."
For the past four years, black voters have talked among themselves about waning optimism amid financial struggles, concern about the need to energize African Americans and the feeling that President Obama has not gotten the credit he deserves.Let's not dwell on the awful writing ("steely determination" -- no editor on a weekly rag would have allowed that 50 years ago, before the age of affirmative action reporters). But turn the thing around. Imagine any paper in culturally Marxist America running this:
Here in Petersburg, which sits on the Appomattox River, there also is a steely determination that Obama must be reelected to prove that his 2008 victory was not a historic fluke. ...
Since 2008, optimism among black and Latino voters has fallen as those populations have faced high unemployment, said University of Chicago political science Professor Michael C. Dawson, who studies race and politics.
"In Paulsburg, white voters just as focused -- if not as vocal -- as in '08"
For the past four years, white voters have talked among themselves about waning optimism amid financial struggles, concern about the need to energize white Americans and the feeling that Mitt Romney has not gotten the credit he deserves.Racism! Racism! Racism! But it's only racism if whites do it. When the Post writes obviously slanted "news" like this, it's because the Post exists to promote black (as well as Hispanic) interests.
Here in Paulsburg, which sits on the Appomattox River, there also is a steely determination that Obama must be defeated to prove that his 2008 victory was a historic fluke. ...
Since 2008, optimism among white voters has fallen as that population has faced high unemployment, said University of Chicago affirmative action political science Professor C. Dawson Michael, who studies race and politics.
If there remain any whites who read the Washington Post regularly to get "news," they must be as brainwashed and masochistic as it is possible to be.
