I have very little doubt that once Governor Rick Perry announces that he’s running for President that our local Texas Tribune — who is still pretending to be an unbiased and objective media group — will become the unofficial (hell…what do I know…it might actually become the official) Obama-media Rick Perry attack dog (Texas affiliate). Hell, he’s not even running yet, and the Texas Tribune is already attacking him on behalf of the Democrat Party as if though he were running.
You’d think that a local
paper media org would be looking for ways to promote the local boy. Stories on his successes and achievements. Positive spin on his campaign. But they won’t. Well…there might be an exception here and there, but you can bet your last paycheck (if you’re not one of the nearly 20% of Americans no longer drawing a check in Obama’s failed economy) that they will be balanced by a heavy dose of “…but, here’s some dirt, too,” and that the majority of their spin will be negative on the longest serving Governor in Texas’ history.
Perry hasn’t even announced yet, but these are the types of things that the Trib is posting on their Facebook and Twitter feeds (directing views back to their news site):
That was on June 13…almost a month ago…but not too soon for the partisan hacks at the Trib to start trying to sow seeds of doubts in voters minds about a Gov. Perry candidacy.
And of course the Trib’s resident anti-death penalty activist / death row inmate groupie (Brandie Grissom) has already penned her piece trying to convince you that Gov. Perry’s support of the death penalty is going to hurt him nationally:
Apparently Ms. Grissom and her ilk can’t fathom a Governor who upholds the laws of the state. In case she’s forgotten, the Death Penalty was law long before Gov. Perry took office. It is a law that the people of Texas overwhelmingly support (well, except for the fine folks at the Trib, anyway). While one journalist might have spun Gov. Perry’s support of the death penalty as a positive (hey, here’s a guy who not only supports the law of the land, but also sees that those laws are upheld by the state), Ms. Grissom goes the other way and tries to paint that as a negative for a campaign for an office he hasn’t even declared for.
Way to get out ahead of the story, Brandi. Now, run off…don’t you have a prayer vigil or protest to attend for tomorrow’s execution of illegal alien/rapist/ murderer Humberto Leal?
I’ll be keeping a close eye on the “totally unbiased, objective, and professional” reporters at the Trib and their completely unbiased stories on Gov. Perry over the coming months to illustrate their ridiculous claim of “unbiased” reporting.
