Here's an example of the vile stuff we're getting from The New York Post in a piece picked up from the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel entitled "Unions lose image war":
The protesters have not won the image war with their Capitol campout. The fleeing Democratic senators have come off as either as shutting down democracy or, worse, buffoons. Hundreds of thousands of parents, whatever their sympathies, have had to scramble for days as teachers’ sick-out shut down schools.Incredibly, author Patrick McIlheran quotes a teacher who supports the unions as evidence that they've lost the image war. No wonder his critics call McIlheran "comically inept."
But here's what you need to know about the New York Post (and Fox News, for that matter): It's owned by Rupert Murdoch, a reactionary billionaire who donated $1 million to the Republican Governors Association. The RGA contributed $5 million to Walker's political campaign.
The mainstream media has fallen on hard times in the past decade, losing readership, viewership and advertising revenue. And they can't understand why.
