Dallas Morning News Bias – September 18, 2013

1) Gas prices above $3 for a record 1,000 days
2) Warren Buffett says scrap Obamacare, start over
(How’s this not news, DMN?)
3) 7 in 10 voters concerned about coverage under Obamacare
4) 51% favor government shutdown until Obamacare funding cut
5) McDonalds pleads for Obamacare relief
6) Food stamp households now outnumber households in northeast U.S.
7) Calif. county projects $650 million in illegal immigrant benefits
Meanwhile, The News’ “news”
*[Chemical weapon] Rocket paths point to Syrian regime, McClatchy/NYT, p. 1A – Well, alright then! Who’s with Dear Leader Obama in fighting alongside al-Qaeda? YIPPEEEE!! … Sez here “experts” and “specialists” are now sure Assad did this. One “expert” is from Human Rights Watch, the other from Columbia University. (We’re told this guy used “back-of-an-envelope tabulations.” Good enough for liberal gubment work!) … Here’s what Alan Dershowitz (no conservative) says about Human Rights Watch: “Who will guard the guardians?” asked Roman satirist Juvenal. Now we must ask, who is watching Human Rights Watch, one of the world’s best-financed and most influential human rights organizations? It turns out that they cook the books about facts, cheat on interviews, and put out pre-determined conclusions that are driven more by their ideology than by evidence. These are serious accusations, and they are demonstrably true. And Columbia University? Well, I’ll just say,“Really?”
*Contradictions defined gunman, p. 1A – Three DMN Dem scribes are on this — everything you’d wanna know about the Navy Yard shooter. ‘Cept this: A friend says Alexis was “more of a liberal” who backed Dear Leader, didn’t like Bush. Before rolling your eyes, know this: if he’d been a big W. or Rick Perry supporter, The News would include that. (Oh, yes they would, grasshoppers.)
*Median income, poverty quit getting worse in ’12, McClatchy, p. 2A – Gee, that’s an interesting way to look at this Census report.
Here are other ways: 
— Median income dropped $2,627 in Obama’s first term;
— Median income dropped every year of Obama’s first term;
— Poverty rolls rose 6.6 million during Obama’s first term;
— A record 46.5 million now “poor,” a 16.7% increase since 2008.
NONE of that — from the same Census report — appears in today’s DMN.
And, Missing Context: Historically, the deeper the recession, the quicker, more robust the recovery.
Ain’t happnin’, folks. Not even close.
*Texas still tops in rate of uninsured, p. 1A; Lower income or not, Texans lag in care, p. 1D – Wow — a double-dose of Texas-Sucks-Won’t-You-Back-Obamacare? today! (No room for what’s actually coming with Dear Leader’s train-wreck.)
