Today’s CA is remarkable. Not just for what their content is, but also for what it isn’t.
First, there is no weather page today. On a day when many readers would like to know the forecast for the coming days, or the temperatures across the country, or the sunrise/sunset times, they don’t have it. The little front page squib they do have acknowledges “no weather map by deadline.”
You can translate that as we wanted to get out of there because it’s a snow day, so here’s a snow job.
But that’s not the most egregious problem. We get three big stories – enough to take up more than a page – all about Trump’s “shithole” comment and how racist he is. He could have said anything and it would have been turned into a racist comment because everything the CA and most of the media cares about anymore is racism. You wonder if they remember what a true racist is.
No space in the paper briefly even touches on two big stories that will effect everyone. The first is James O’Keefe’s videos that show Twitter exercises suppression of freedom of speech when it comes to conservatives, Republicans or anyone they don’t like. This is unbelievably shocking and evil.
Second is the huge investigation being undertaken to find out how deep the FBI and the DOJ under Obama were corrupted for political purposes. Did the Obama White House and Clinton campaign make up the Steele Dossier and use it to get a FISA warrant to spy against their political opponent? Many feel that there will be a major development next week in these cases that promises to rock Washington.
The CA blithely goes on ignoring the major stories while doubling down on everything Trump does. Don’t go to them for news. Their real purpose now appears to be for laughs. They are certainly providing them.
