TODAY’S DALLAS MORNING LOW-INFO VOTER NEWS
*Race to rescue [Obamacare] website not over, NYT, p. 1A – Funny, yesterday The News’ front-page headline told us: “Website to meet deadline.” Yes – I’m quite certain I saw that. It was really straight forward. But today, we learn from The NYT: “The website, which the administration promised would ‘function smoothly’ for most people by Nov. 30, remains a work in progress.” So it seems the deadline was NOT met. Shall we expect a correction, Editor Mong? (Loved your sub-head today too, sir: Out of officials’ tense meeting came scramble to save Obama. How ’bout that? These“officials” share The News’ motivation!) … To show how far off-base was The News yesterday, here’s yet another paper’s headline for the same news: Health site improving, but likely to miss Saturday deadline. That’s The WSJ. And recall The Times’ headline yesterday: “Health care website rushes to meet Sunday’s deadline; Weeks of effort remain.” My point: The News really is way out there, folks. I call it Texas’ Most Liberal Newspaper for very good reasons.
*Power firms face darker days, p. 1A – Yeah, yeah. But how does this epic get written with no mention of Dear LeaderObama’s sinister plans for power companies? DMN Dem scribe James Osborne never once mentions our prez.

*Celebrations, p. 12E – Where ARE the homosexual “engagements” and “weddings?” I understand they’re sweeping the nation — but I’ve not seen one in The News in ages. Please don’t tell me the practice has been stopped for the almighty dollar. Did the homosexual announcements have a deleterious effect on sales? Shouldn’t matter — DMN publisher JamesMoroney called it “the right thing to do.”

*Flawed Death Penalty, Editorial, p. 2P – “Opposition to the death penalty is not just the province of the political left.”Yes, and the opposite is true too: Per Gallup, Dec. 2012 — “Independents” support the DP, 65-32, “Democrats” back it, 51-42, “Liberals” are evenly split. Famous lib lawyer Cass Sunstein even flipped on the issue. See below.
