The Daily EverRed?

You may think so after you see tomorrow's edition. Christopher Lupke, PARD's very own "Baghdad Bob", has been given an editorial to spout all kinds of ridiculous drivel, in addition to endorsing Judy Krueger and Gary Johnson for city council.

I am assuming that similar editorial offers have been extended to Ann Heath's, Bill Paul's, and Joshua Coke's supporters. Or maybe not. Certainly the pro-Wal-Mart forces in town have not been extended any such offer, even though we count many students among our ranks. But how would the Evergreen even know there was a pro-Wal-Mart group in town? They have not carried the story yet, even though they received the press release well over a week ago.

I am giving them the benefit of the doubt, for now. But the Evergreen should keep in mind that many of the businesses who adverstise in their paper and on their website are the same people who support Wal-Mart. It might be time for a boycott of our own.

Oh Tom, they know. They choose to ignore the majority to help their backsides, err, paycheck. How can they possibly justify their endorsement of Gary Johnson when the only thing anyone knows about the ghost candidate is that he is against Wal-mart? Pretty thin endorsement. And of course they will endorse Judy Krueger, they might be up for bias/racial/intolerant charges if they didn't.

I think the real issue goes back to what Russell Hall said a while back. T.V. Reed as Associate Dean of College of Liberal Arts has too much influence over the Daily Evergreen.

That seems to be PARD's general strategy now, both with Wal-Mart and the election, to concentrate on the students. Not too much talk anymore about "winning the battle of public opinion." They want to turn the campus against the town.

And I love the claim that Wal-Mart is going to do away with public schools! I guess digging up dead bodies wasn't enough. Let's drag the kids into it.

All of PARD's lies are going to be exposed in the weeks to come.

The article was horrible. Trying to turn the campus against the town is not in anyone's best interest. It is all the same arguments they use everytime.

Tom Forbes said...

Judging from the Evergreen cover today, it looks like the campus had better clean up their own act first before telling us peons down in town how to live.

Any bets that Bernardo Gallegos won't be voting for Judy Krueger, the CHR's senior investigator?

Tom, Good to see that you called like you 'read-it' Ever-RED.
