I'll Admit it . . .

I read TDW. Everyone needs a little laughter in their lives. But, today, if you can believe it, TDW is incorrect on something. I know, this may seem unbelievable. I know this might be a sign of the apocalypse. But believe it. TDW posts in the story: That Old Tree In The Forest: Falling, Falling, But Nary A Sound Will Be Heard:

Speaking of desperation, a few people have asked about the status of the Star's ethically reprehensible "Campaign Connections" event. It was slated to happen a couple weeks ago, but the paper bumped the date into next month. Oh, and we've been told they're only doing it for Democrats. Gannett's way, apparently, is to snuggle up to the folks they think are going to win, which is why they did a similar event for Republicans in 2004. We're flattered that they think we're going to be victorious in November. But not flattered enough to give them a pass on this questionable advertorial crap.

One of our mini-FIN field folks sent us an e-mail indicating that there was a Republican group who were invited to come and enjoy an evening with people from the Star. In fact, it happened more than a week ago.

Maybe they are pushing off the event with the Democrats because they have put up candidates that aren't qualified or able to do the jobs they are running for or hold.

Keep up the work out there mini-FIN's!!

Glad to hear the Star made the same offer to the Republicans. It's disgusting that they're playing either side.
