Weeks Before Election Md. Loses Hundreds of Jobs to Va.; WaPo Ignores
October 16th, 2014 1:12 PM
On Monday the Bechtel Corporation announced it was pulling up stakes from Frederick, Md., and moving a "substantial" portion of its Maryland-based jobs across the Potomac to Reston, Virginia. Of course the Washington Post, which on Monday endorsed Maryland Democratic gubernatorial nominee Anthony Brown, refused to carry the story in its print pages. High taxes and a sluggish…
WaPo Shields Dems from Scrutiny But Now Sees Md. 'Voter Discontent'
October 13th, 2014 5:53 PM
On page A3 of today's Washington Post, staffer Reid Wilson relayed the story of how "Voter discontent opens up more governor's races" in a reliably Obama-friendly corridor of the continental United States. "GOP offers surprising challenges in Northeast," notes the subheader for the story.
Shielding the Dems: WashPost Buries Md. Tax Shortfall on B3
September 25th, 2014 2:18 PM
Deeply liberal Maryland -- where they tax, I kid you not, the rain -- has announced a tax revenue shortfall of $405 million. This news arrives in the middle of a gubernatorial election year and following years of tax hikes and casino openings which the state's Democratic establishment promised would solve the state's fiscal woes.
So naturally the Washington Post shielded Democratic…
WashPost Shields Maryland Lt. Gov. by Burying Bad ObamaCare News
September 17th, 2014 4:59 PM
Last year the deeply liberal Democratic state of Maryland had an absolutely atrocious rollout of its ObamaCare website. Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown (D), who is running this November for governor, was in charge of the ObamaCare rollout.
The website has since been completely overhauled, at the staggering cost of $40 million, but all the same, health department officials are planning…
Md. Governor Does Illegal Immigrants Another Favor, WashPost Buries on
August 31st, 2014 12:34 AM
In yet another instance of the Washington Post shielding the Maryland Democratic political establishment, including the party's nominee for governor, editors buried on page B4 of the Saturday, August 30 edition a stunning story about outgoing Gov. Martin O'Malley's refusal to cooperate with federal immigration officials to eventually deport illegal immigrants who have served time…
Yet Again WashPost Shields Md. Democratic Gubernatorial Nominee by Bur
August 27th, 2014 6:08 PM
The Washington Post is almost certain to endorse liberal Democrat Anthony Brown for Maryland governor. So it's really no surprise that the paper's news reporters and editors have taken an incredibly light touch when it comes to the lieutenant governor's political liabilities. Chief among them is the disastrous rollout of the state's ObamaCare exchange, which, as I've…
WashPost Dutifully Furthers Md. Dems' 'War-on-Women' Attacks on GOP Go
August 15th, 2014 12:50 PM
The Washington Post is at it again in today's Metro section, boosting Gov. Martin O'Malley's protege Anthony Brown, this time by smearing conservative Republican gubernatorial candidate Larry Hogan.
Staff writer John Wagner essentially allowed his 32-paragraph article, "Hogan emphasizes pocketbook issues," to function as a platform for the state's Democratic…
Citing Anti-Gun Climate, Beretta USA Leaves Md..; WashPost Fails to Se
July 23rd, 2014 5:50 PM
Yesterday Accokeek, Md.-based firearms manufacturer Beretta USA announced that it would shut down its plant in Maryland and move all manufacturing operations to Gallatin, Tennessee. Beretta cited the state's hostile anti-gun politics as a reason for the move, although the Italian company will keep its white-collar executive jobs in the Old Line State.
This is a gubernatorial election year…
Md. ObamaCare Panel Held Illegal Secret Meetings; WashPost Avoids Conn
May 22nd, 2014 5:05 PM
The Washington Post's Jenna Johnson reported yet another black mark against Maryland's rollout of ObamaCare. It seems the "board that oversees Maryland's troubled health insurance marketplace repeatedly violated a state law that requires such groups to fully explain their reasons for meeting behind closed doors" according to a ruling issued Tuesday by the Maryland Open…
Millions Sunk in Md. ObamaCare Disaster; WashPost Fails to Consider Po
March 31st, 2014 3:46 PM
The ObamaCare health care exchange website that Maryland designed is such a monstrous failure that the state government is pulling its plug tomorrow and replacing it with a website which essentially mimics the architecture of the actually-functional Connecticut state exchange. In the process, Maryland taxpayers have seen $125.5 million of their hard-earned tax dollars flushed down the drain by…
WashPost Slaps 'Don't Read This' Headline on Story Re: Md. Dems Shield
February 3rd, 2014 5:05 PM
You could call it bias-by-boring-headline. This typically happens when liberal Democrats do something scandalous or at the very least questionable and a major newspaper covers the story and publishes it, but headline editors give it such a milquetoast headline as to essentially tell the reader,"You'll fall asleep reading this. Move along."
That's essentially the case with…
