Dallas Morning News Bias – September 17, 2013

NOT NEWS TO THE DALLAS MORNING DAILY KOS
1) Obama waives U.S. ban on arming terrorists to allow Syrian ‘rebel’ aid
(You read that right.)
2) Embattled Syria ‘expert’: I made ‘many mistakes’
3) CIA employee who refused to sign non-disclosure statement suspended
From yesterday:
Group hopes for Davis run, p. 5B – 25 inches on what a pro-abort Wendy Davis-backer thinks of Wendy Davis running for governor. Now that’s some “news,” baby!! A sampling: “It’s fantastic[!]”; “She’s an incredibly smart state senator[!]”; She has “courage” and “fearlessness[!]”; Republicans want us to “revert back to the policies of the 1950s.” Nothing but a free campaign ad, folks. … BTW, has anyone seen a DMN story devoted to nothing but a tea partier going on and on about Ted Cruz, without a single negative syllable? No, kind readers. And you won’t.
Meanwhile today’s DMN “news”
*[GOP gubernatorial candidate] Pauken uses Davis to run against Abbott, p. 1A  Even a DMN feature on a GOP candidate is about “Abortion Barbie!” Good stuff!! … Question for DMN Dem scribe “3-Dub” Slater: This “Republican in the crowd” at the tea party meeting who stood and claimed to be worried about “this woman, Wendy Davis” — thus making the front-page — no way he/she was a plant, huh, Wayne? … And for those wondering, “3-Dub” again assures Ms. Davis will make her decision to run or not “in the coming weeks.” (This will get really exciting when it gets down to “the coming hours,” “the coming minutes.”)
*Divide and conquer, p. 1B  A glowing review of something called “project-based learning'” for elementary school tikes! (Gee, why didn’t we think of that??) DMN Dem scribe Andrew Scoggin hasn’t a bad thing to say about teachers “stepping aside” and letting little ones “totally take charge of their own learning.” Oh, except, deep on jump-page 9B we learn they don’t do well on tests — but “What the hell!” says a Purdue egghead. “What little they do learn, they retain!” (LOL. Too much.)  Scribe Scoggin assures this is an “increasingly popular method in education.” (I bet, Scogs! Teachers do nothing — kids learn nothing!) … Not wanting to offend these esteemed educators, Scroggin fails to note that law school, medical school, military flight school, real estate school, dog catcher, all require taking tests. And unanswered here: do these kids receive a stipend for “totally taking charge of their own learning?”
*[Black] Crash victim gunned down by [white] officer, LATimes, p. 4A – We’re reminded here, of course, the black man was “unarmed.” But recall unarmed Chris Lane, shot in the back this summer, was never referred to as “unarmed.” … Just pointing out the journalistic bias, friends. The mainstream media view it as their duty to ratchet up racial tension in all cases of white-on-black violence, no matter the circumstances.
