This is quite an observation. Maybe there is hope for the mainstream media yet….slim hope, but hope none the less.
Opening today’s Washington Post, there are three editorials. The lead editorial is on Obama’s policies with respect to the automobile industry.
“the spectacle of creditors being stripped of their legal rights in favor of a labor union with which the president is politically aligned does little to attract private capital at a time when the government and many companies need these investors the most.”
The second editorial argues that the entitlement problem is serious and cannot wait. The third editorial defends the DC school voucher program.
Since we know that the Obama Administration is centrist and pragmatic, the only inference to draw is that the Post has become a mouthpiece for the far right wing.
