Dallas Morning News Bias – December 16, 2013


*Poll: Cruz is third most influential world leader after Pope, Obama
(Yeah, DMN, Cruz is one of Texas’ U.S. Senators — the state’s first Hispanic U.S. Senator, in fact. This would seem to be a story, but then I’m not J-school trained.)
*Pope: I’m no Marxist
(Hahahahahahhahahaha! Me thinks the Pontiff protesteth too much!)
*Obamacare exchange erroneously debits bank accounts
*George P. moves right, away from Bush name, toward tea party
How The West Was Lost By ‘Selfie’ President
Meanwhile, The News’ “news”
*Insured say health law costing them in coverage, AP, p. 1A – Now why would they say that? Doesn’t make sense to AP hack Ricardo Alonso-Saldivar or The News’ copy editor. Note the snarky sub-head: In poll, they show contempt for law they aren’t using. Oh, we’re ALL “using” Obamacare now, DMN. It’s indeed wreaking havoc on everyone’s costs and situation – or it will very soon. … Mystified hack Al-Sal says there’s “a striking level of unease about the law among people who have health insurance and aren’t looking for government assistance. Those are the 85 percent of Americans who the White House says don’t have to be worried about the president’s historic push to expand coverage for the uninsured.”
Could it be because the White House has already been shown to be LYING about that? (This isn’t noted till deep into 14A.) Al-Sal goes on to say, hey, costs were already going up before Obamacare and “political leanings seemed to affect perceptions of eroding coverage … .” Ah, there you go: Dear Leader-haters (probably racists) are simply lying about their costs suddenly exploding. LOL! … Folks, that bilge is how AP and The News cover this devastating-for-Obama poll.And this tidbit lies at the bottom of 14A: “Disapproval of Dear Leader’s handling of health care tops 60 percent.” (There’s your headline, guys! You know, bipartisanship!) … Interesting: The News edits from the original AP story this opening line: “Just when the government’s insurance website is starting to run more smoothly, an Associated Press-GfK poll finds a potentially bigger problem for President Barack Obama‘s health care overhaul.” The News starts with, “Americans who already have health insurance are blaming [Obamacare] …”Subtle, subtle. A way less negative lede for Dear Leader. … And compare AP’s own headline below with The News’ header and smart-alecked subhead:
