Dallas Morning News Bias – December 8, 2013

*A world of sharing, The Ecomony and You, LATimes, p. 2D – Our mainstream media have a hip, new term for Dear Leader’s over-regulated, Obamacare-throttled, stalled, pissant economy: It’s “the shared economy!”And it’s FUN, kids!! Can’t afford office space? Share it! Can’t afford cab fare?Share it! Can’t afford your boat? Share it! Can’t afford your house? Share it!The News’ sub-head calls it a “new way of doing things[!]” Yes! And get used to it! No wailing ’bout an awful economy or the pain being inflicted — like for a Republican prez — just a creative new way to look at it!
*[Week-end food] Program helps students focus on school, not food, p. 7B – This food bank prez bashes recent measly cuts to our RECORD stamp spending – earning space in Dallas’ newspaper of record. Cut food stamps? Are you crazy? We got NEW initiatives — like weekend school food! … Missing context: a record 23 million U.S. households — 48 million Americans — are on food stamps; food-stamp spending has DOUBLED under Dear Leader. … The News’ Dem scribe reports a “high level of [food-stamp] demand since the 2008 economic downtown that has yet to dwindle.” Since most downturns last a year or two before “dwindling” — how ’bout a Sunday Opinion feature on why Dear Leader’s “recovery” is so darned poor?
*Is Texas treating you right?, Points, p. 1P – With everything — and I meaneverything — going on, here’s The News’ Sunday Opinion feature: Texas sucks at serving people — i.e., giving them stuff, making them “equal.” … “Lovey Howell’s” crew has stumbled across a group of Boston leftists, Opportunity Nation, that has compiled statistics[!] showing Texas’ capitalistic, free-market, business-friendly ways just don’t do the job. (It’s all part of The News’ Turn Texas Blue campaign.) These leftist, along with other leftists, Measure of America, effort to “redefine what opportunity means – not just in general, but in terms who benefits.” (“Who benefits” means equal outcomes, just so you know. It’s the old, your Zip Code/state of birth shouldn’t decide your blah, blah, blah — and education spending per student is the gold standard.) The author? Leftist Anne Kim, senior policy fellow at the Progressive Policy Institute. … (This is where The News is on Dec. 8, 2013. Hopeless.)
*What Dallas Really Needs, Editorial, p. 2P – The News is giddy ’bout the prospect of installing a big-time lib central-planner as Dallas’ new City Manager. They’ve got the mayor, the city council — now, for that cherry on top! (To potential candidates, see above Opinion feature for where The News wants to go.) … “Lovey Howell” Willey’s thinkers have gathered comments from “20 people with different areas of expertise” — and from mostly one political party — to help crystalize what Dallas needs. A well-rounded group, indeed! Thank you, DMN!
Common themes:
*take risks — (with other peoples’ money)
*be bold  — (in birthing Zurich-on-the-Trinity), and
*enhance multiculturalism, walkability!
