"We need to be open to hearing voices we don't agree with."Indeed.
Which explains perfectly why I and so many others of the more conservative bent are absolutely banned from commenting on anything in his cancer on our community.
This gutless worm of an editor has even gone so far as to ban people (Lew Waters) for referring to that despicable rag he runs as what they are: the Lazy C.
Not in comments on the local Pravda Izvestia, you understand, but outside of it... But instead in Lew's own blog. And, of course, that was all done via email.
And that's where the hypocrisy comes in.
There's no doubt that Lying Lefty threw this bone out their as an arcane exercise to help polish the lie of his lack of bias.
He wrote those words, perhaps. But there is absolutely ZERO question that he does not believe what he wrote.
The proof of the pudding isn't the odd column or article where the candidacy of Sen. Cruz or any other candidacy is printed in this fertilizer of a paper.
No, the proof of the pudding is in those things that are done by this scumbag behind the scenes... where the reader can't see them.
It's in the double standard of both coverage of hated conservatives and excused/worshiped leftists.
It's in the scum Lying Lefty allows to comment... and certainly the years that "Cockroach" Laird polluted our community with his fringe-left hatred.
It's in the Chinese water torture of columns filled with lies, half-truths, exaggerations and character assassination protected under the banner of "opinion," which, of course, means that crap doesn't have to be true... since it's "opinion."
"We need to be open to hearing voices we don't agree with.," Lying Lefty Lou Brancaccio tells us: but his actions do not live up to his words. And this self-flagellation of a column, where he appears to uphold some higher standard... some defense of the First Amendment is done purely and entirely to scam people into believing that he truly is some sort of journalistic giant, looking out for us..
... instead of the fringe-left, petulant asshole that he certainly is and which his actions absolutely belie.
