A reporter for the Torrance (Calif.) Daily Breeze sent an e-mail to a political consultant saying the newspaper is “not interested” in covering Republican candidate Mattie Fein, who is challenging Democratic Rep. Jane Harman in California’s 36th District.
In the e-mail sent Wednesday (see text below), Daily Breeze reporter Nick Green told consultant John S. Thomas of Thomas Partners Strategies, “Don’t call or e-mail us – we’ll call you if we’re interested. And if you haven’t got it yet, we’re not interested.”
…at least they were honest.
We already know that California is so far down the rabbit hole that at any minute, a young blond girl is going to emerge on the other side of CA/NV border claiming to have just had tea with a white rabbit, a burly Austrian gentleman, and Jessica Alba. It should come as no surprise that a newspaper would be less-than-enthusiastic about a Republican candiate; after all, racism, tea parties, and but BUSH, right? What’s scandalous about all of this is that Fein’s people were just trying to put out a response to a recently-passed jobs bill that the offending rag claimed would save over 200 jobs–in Fein’s own district. The paper did, of course, feature a statement by Fein’s Democrat competitor, Jane Harman.
If this surprises you, you are not paying attention.
It’s been obvious for a long time that the mainstream media outlets not only prefer, but cater to, the agenda of the progressive machine. What we’re seeing here, though, is a blatant, public admission by the Daily Breeze that “fair and balanced” is out, and shilling for liberals is the new black. They put it in writing; this was on purpose.
You have to wonder about the state of the country, when a mainstream media outlet feels comfortable enough to admit that it’s doing its best to brainwash its readership all the way to the polling place.
