Facts matter, but the Pantagraph doesn’t have them. Today they decided to endorse Renner (no surprise) and Bob Fike for mayor. They want Tari, Fike will be the easiest to beat. Very predictable.
Their decision was made on faulty facts however. They even PRINTED their faulty facts. This should PROVE why all subscriptions should now be cancelled. This election is a big deal and they just printed the biggest case of FAKE NEWS I’ve seen from them. Usually they hide it better.
I really hate asking you to read garbage, but this is their editorial: http://www.pantagraph.com/news/opinion/editorial/editorial-renner-fike-earn-our-endorsement/article_e0c7709f-02b5-55df-a390-b3713653c7c4.html
From the above, see if you can spot the glaring error in this paragraph:
waiting . . . .
waiting . . . .
Figure it out yet? Keep in mind the Pantagraph thinks you should trust them to accurately report the news AND they want you to believe they make good decisions for you.
Does the Pantagraph really not know Kevin Lower’s term for Ward 1 expires on 4/30/17 and he is not running for that seat again? How is he going to be a continued strong voice on the Council when he won’t be on the Council? If Kevin Lower is not elected mayor, he won’t be in office at all!
Considering the Pantagraph said “voices” on the Council, they can no longer be respected as a source for ANY real news or informed opinions.
Just like every other major media source – they destroyed themselves!
I appreciate the glaring FAKE NEWS confirmation though!
More notes: The editorial parrots Renner’s claim that he brought HyVee to town. The original stories say 70% of the jobs are part-time. HyVee also polished off Cub Foods. Low wage jobs that just replace other low wage jobs are nothing to brag about. The rag also ignored Renner’s fleecing of citizens through multiple tax increases. That must mean they approve. They did mention Renner’s censure, but being a j*****s doesn’t disqualify their buddy from office.
Maybe I should print his rant again since it shows his lack of character.
