Dallas Morning News Bias – December 10, 2013

Tell us again, DMN, how Obamacare won’t affect people with employer health insurance.
Then read this:
THE DALLAS MORNING TRICKLE-UP-POVERTY NEWS would have you believe there’s no Obamacare news today.
*Obamacare exchanges vulnerable to wi-fi attack
*Obamacare may cost Americans their meds
*Cruz slams ‘lawless implementation’ of Obamacare
(He’s one of our U.S. Senators, guys. Remember?)
The Pope’s Self-Defeating Anti-Capitalist Rant
2) Nobel Prize-winning journalist: Obama lied about Syria gas attack
3) Obama dismisses concerns of IRS targeting of conservatives
4) Treasury sells last of GM stake at $10.5 billion loss
Meanwhile, The News’ “news”
*As [income] gap widens, ranks of ‘new rich’ growing, AP, p. 1A – Out of the blue, Dear Leader makes an “income inequality” speech and AP and The News fall right in line. Hilarious! It’s not just the wealthiest 1 percent. Fully 20 percent of U.S. adults become rich for parts of their lives, wielding outsize influence on America’s economy and politics. Folks, that’s not my satirical take on this piece — those are the actual first two sentences of this news report!! Attaining wealth is bad, must be slowed!! I’m not kidding. (And these people are dead serious.)
Missing context The News will NOT tell you:
— the top 40 percent of households paid 106 percent of U.S. income taxes in 2010;
— the bottom 40 percent paid minus-9 percent — they took in almost $19,000 each, on average;
— the CBO calls them “government transfers.”
*Many lung [cancer] tumors harmless, AP, p. 4A – (If they’re not in your lung, of course! LOL.) … Here, our National Cancer Institute prepares us for coming “improvements” in our health care system. (The NCI, BTW, is under HHS witch Kathleen Sebelius, though AP doesn’t connect the dots.) We’re now supposed to believe that many cancerous lung tumors are “harmless” andrequire no treatment. (They “probably won’t cause problems,” reveals The News’ sub-head.) How convenient! Armed with this new “research” — guess who’ll soon be making these decisions? Right!The HHS witch! … (See how “news” is made, kids?)
*[Syria] disarmament moving slowly, LATimes, p. 11A – Aw, is Dear Leader going to missanother deadline, have to move another red line? Sounds like it – but his name appears nowhere here.
