TODAY’S DALLAS MORNING LOW-INFO VOTER NEWS
*Cruz leads lonely attack on budget bill, p. 1A – Actually, Cruz attacked Obamacare, the massive, leftist job-killer — and he did it quite effectively, though DMN Dem Todd “The Hack” Gillman doesn’t include a single thing he said about it. Someone speaks for hours on end — longer than “Abortion Barbie!” — and we don’t get a syllable of relevant remarks. LOL (Not so for The News’ Davis-filibuster report in June. That coverage also included a fawning profile. See below.) Context: The fricking UK Daily Mail, below, has a better report on this than a paper from Cruz’s home state. … DMN Editor’s Note: Today’s Gillman report is a “Long Take,” as opposed to his “Quick Take” yesterday — an extended Op-Ed, if you will.

*[Obamacare] Costs may be under forecasts, p. 1A – You don’t say! Really? See below, stuff The News just won’t tell you about Obamacare:

*Huge [West Texas] wind farm planned, p. 1D – Missing context: wind is the most unreliable source of “renewable” energy there is; over 500,000 birds are killed annually by U.S. wind-farm turbines; the wind sector is being kept afloat by massive federal government subsidies. (Another tip-top, biased report from DMN Democrat scribe James “Windy” Osborne! He currently holds the record for Words Written About Wind Farms Without A Single Hint Of Negativity. Kudos!)

*[Dallas County] Budget set for voter ID lawsuit, p. 1B – Will we soon see DMN reports implying wasted taxpayer money, that this is not worth the fight — like we’ve seen for Farmers Branch and illegal immigration? …………………………
………….. No. How about a column or an editorial? …………….. No.
*Domestic violence case against News reporter [James Ragland] dismissed, p. 1B – Oh, good. The News gets a snarky, lib columnist back. Not enough of those. … So Ragland walks ‘cuz his wife wouldn’t testify — and The News is good with that, evidently. (As a good scribe might say, “…. EVEN AS The News fully backs Dallas mayor Rawlings campaign to stop domestic violence and knows full-well beaten wives often won’t testify against their husbands.”)
