More Lazy C Chicanery Against Republicans

by lewwaters

Donkey kissing assAlthough the Lazy C frequently proves my blog posts right, after all, they can’t help being who and what they are, it isn’t often they run an article proving me right so quickly after being exposed.

Just this morning in the post The Stench of the Columbian addressing their continued hate fest with Sen. Don Benton, it was brought to the fore again of how they are very selective in their rants against Republicans versus Democrats and the flimsy excuses they use to justify not covering scandalous activities of Democrats.

In it, I presented copies of a Twitter exchange where Marisa Harshman and Amy Libby excused not covering a Democrat State Senator’s son arrested for rape as not newsworthy since he isn’t from Clark County.

Will the Lazy C Ignore Benton – Rivers Reconciliation?

by lewwaters

Rivers-BentonIn spite of Lou Brancaccio’s many denials, the Lazy C (the Columbian) is noted for their left leaning bias, making them more of a daily newsletter for the Democrat Party than an objective newspaper in their political articles.

Very few Republicans receive much of a positive nod, especially if they are conservative Republicans and not the spineless RINO’s selling their souls to liberals on many issues of importance to us.

And yes, there are some exceptions or at least, an appearance of an exception. Senator Ann Rivers is such an exception in that they do not bash and denigrate her to the degree they have others, such as Senator Don Benton and County Commissioner David Madore.

They were real quick to jump on the disagreement and exchange of words between Senators Rivers and Benton, gleefully painting Don Benton once again as an out of control monster.

UPDATED: The Columbian: Busted Again On Their Pro-Democrat Bias

by lewwaters

Newspaper 2For some time we conservatives have complained about the Columbian newspaper’s bias in favor of Democrats, only to be met by Editor Lou Brancaccio’s reminders of they endorsed George W. Bush in 2004 and again endorsed Mitt Romney in the 2012 Presidential election.

Never mind that they refrain from publishing articles critical of Democrats nor do they publish article with glowing praise about Republicans, Brancaccio maintains they are even handed and do not favor either side, regardless of how many times we list their bias.

Once again we see a glaring example of their pro-Democrat bias and why I often label them the “unofficial daily newsletter for the Democrat Party.”

Jim Moeller Scoffs at the Idea of a Centrist Government

by lewwaters

Moeller, GoofAll expectations point to 17th Legislative District Senator Don Benton retaining his lead over challenger Tim Probst to keep his seat in the state senate. It’s been a very close and contentious campaign with Democrats throwing everything they could at Don to unseat him, including spending hundreds of thousands of dollars in bogus mud-slinging attack ads, painting Senator Benton as evil and uncaring as any human could possibly be.

In spite of coming very close to succeeding, Benton appears to be holding on to the win. Even though by a slim margin, a win is a win. Clark County Elections Supervisor Tim Likness states that even though the final results will not be certified until next week, it is not expected to change the outcome.

Although Senator Benton is labeled as one of the most partisan people in Olympia, his retaining the Senate seat is expected to finally bring about a more centrist oriented legislature with two moderate Democrats, Tim Sheldon and Rodney Tom indicating their desire to be more bipartisan and work more with Republicans that hard line Democrats in a “power-sharing” arrangement.
