Whining and Begging, Still Failing the Community

by lewwaters

Col MonkeyColumbian editor Lou Brancaccio has never hidden his disdain for blogs and bloggers and in years past has laid a portion of blame on blogs for the Lazy C’s declining sales and subscription rate.

But the reality of it is that newspapers and media in general have no one to blame but themselves for the decline.

Long ago many told Lou that if the newspaper were more even handed and equitable in political coverage, not promoting the left more so than the right, they likely would regain many conservative readers that walked away from their product.

His response as usual, “We already endorse about as many Republicans as we do Democrats.”

What Drives Brancaccio?

L. Brancaccio

In yet another of the endless rants against conservatives, primarily County Councilors Madore, & Mielke and Sen. Don Benton, Lazy C editor Lou Brancaccio adds to his plethora of sardonic screeds, Press Talk: What drives Madore?

As is to be expected, Brancaccio, or ol Lefty Lou as he is better known in these parts, engages in his usual self aggrandizing of just how right he always is and of course, how wrong people like Madore always are.

In fact, he pats himself on the back so much over the years I can’t fathom why his shirts aren’t threadbare on the backs.

Is It Up To the Media to Determine When the Public Has “A Right to Know?”

by lewwaters

typewriter-2For some years now, our media has basked in the glory of how they brought down the corrupt presidency of Richard Nixon back in 1974, causing him to be the only sitting president to resign office, so far.

In the succeeding years they became more and more focused on the conservative right, ignoring what the liberal left was doing and in fact, became little more than mouthpieces for the Democrat Party with their extreme bias against Republicans and anything conservative.

Cries of bias aimed at them were scoffed at and ridiculed, written off as sour grapes. Fox News came along and finally offered a real objective news source and they too have been ridiculed, lambasted and denigrated by the more lamestream media sources that can find no wrongdoing on the part of Democrats, but can blow anything concerning the GOP far out of proportion.
