Dallas Morning News Bias – January 16, 2014

*Obama: I’ll act — with or without Congress
(This is AP, The News’ bread-and-butter – but not for this.)
*Obama donor wraps IRS investigation; no charges expected
*Ads attacking Obamacare stagger outspent Democrats
(This ISN’T news at The News, but “Abortion Barbie” supposedly leading Abbott in fundraising IS. Perfect, guys!)
*China holding record U.S. debt
*Third House Dem in three days retires; five Dem Senate chairmen leaving
Will The IRS Bully You Into Obamacare?
Meanwhile, The News’ “news”
*[Benghazi] Assault deemed avoidable, AP, p. 1A – Missing context: What difference does it make? Hillary Rodham Clinton. … “The report does not name Hillary Clinton …” Hahahahahahahahaha! That’s rich. Bipartisan white-wash!! Barack Obama’s not named either, at least not in this AP account. … So — blame the dead guy, the military, “bureaucratic delays” — but NOT Her Thighness!! Again – too much! … Here’s a tidbit AP leaves out: 15 folks assisting in Libya with the probe have been murdered. That’s FIFTEEN. It’s in this report — but not AP’s. (See below.) Perhaps AP’s style-book cut-off for these mentions is 20 or more. (And what IS it with the Clintons and dead people? See Jim McDougal, Vince Foster.) … BTW, where WAS Dear Leader as these events unfolded? The White House still won’t say. Perhaps getting some rest for his Las Vegas fundraiser the next day? AP nor The News care a WHIT about that. … More missing context: polling shows a plurality of Americans still believe Dear Leader and Hillary “deliberately misled” about Benghazi; evidence shows Obama’s admin knew this was terrorist attack from the start; this panel report directly contradicts The Times’ recent claim that al Qaeda had nothing to with the attacks.
*Justice to widen ban on profiling, NYT, p. 1A – So what about tea partiers? Still OK to profile them? Story doesn’t say. … Oh, this’ll make us safer! Not all Muslims are terrorists, of course, but most all terrorists are Muslims – so Holder’s gonna stop “profiling” them! Makes sense!! No worries from The Times here. … Missing context: The Muslim Bro’hood and affiliates enjoy unprecedented influence in and around Dear Leader’s royal crib; and Holder has long history of defending – pro bono – Muslim terror suspects.
*Penney to close stores, cut jobs, p. 1D – Doesn’t JCP read The News? 2014’s gonna be a barnburner. Really! And those reports of job losses/cutbacks due to Obamacare, they’re just “anecdotal,” we were told yesterday.  … Missing from DMN Dem scribe Karen Robinson-Jacobs’ take, (from AP, emphasis mine): “Penney is expected to be among a number of stores that will be announcing it will be cutting staff and closing stores in the next few weeks. … [A]nalysts believe that after a tough holiday season where stores had to discount early and often to get shoppers to buy in a tough economy, the cuts will be deeper than normal, says John Challenger, CEO of Challenger, Gray and Christmas …” Folks, AP is plenty liberal, but The News is more so – hands-down.
