Dallas Morning News Bias – January 11, 2014

*Home Depot co-founder: Obamacare’s worst still to come
*Daily pot use tied to age of first psychotic episode
(From reading The News you’d think weed harmless. See below, “Fretful Stevie” Blow’s recent chirpy column. But this supposedly delightful plant has higher levels of certain toxic compounds than tobacco and is linked to respiratory disease and lung cancer. Blow, The Liberal Baptist, left that out. … As with homosexuality, at The News, you need not know the down side.)
*Arrest made in NYC ‘knockout’ attack
(This national trend hasn’t gotten much attention in The News. They’re too busy with the Dallas-was-racist-and-still-is stuff.)
Meanwhile, The News’ “news”
*Drop in new jobs surprises analysts, AP, p. 1A – Just the liberal ones, guys. … Better headlines: For every job added, nearly five people left workforce; A record 92 million Americans out of workforce; After 5 years, Obama’s economy still staggers; Dems’ ‘War on Women’? A record 55 million females not in work force. … (Obamacare’s employer mandate will no doubt be another “surprise” to DMN readers.)
*Mortgage safeguards take effect, WashPo, p. 1D – Actually, these “safeguards” represent Dear Leader’s big-gubment takeover of the mortgage industry. (Google Dodd-Frank, grasshoppers.) … This report, chock-full of propaganda, claims the 2008 meltdown was caused by lenders who “cast aside” all“common sense practices” and “relaxed standards to churn out more lucrative loans.” Actually banks were forced to relax standards by the federal government. It started with 1977’s Community Reinvestment Act. (See below.) …  And don’t look now, but these guys are also coming for your retirement accounts – to “help you” manage them, of course. (And that is how it’ll appear in The News.)
