    Well what came first, the chicken or the egg? Did liberals lose interest in hearing about Lockbourne Rd. shootings and Hillard teens catching balls and tune out local TV news, making the content they feature more popular outside the city? Or did the TV news start out conservative and increase demand for stories about stolen quads outside Canal Winchester and shots of cheerleaders gathered up in front of the camera under a big umbrella while it is raining on a Friday night in the fall?



    So how about the question:

    Is Media Matters in the tank for George Soros, the Tides Foundation, the Ford Foundation, the Sandler Foundation, MoveOn.org, the Barbra Streisand Foundation, the Lear Family Foundation, the Joyce Foundation and various other leftist organizations?

    Rus, there’s not much money to be made publishing a newspaper. The big money is made by monopoly owners like the Wolfes who own the Dispatch by manipulating the news coverage to further their financial interests. For example, the Wolfes were minority owners of the Blue Jackets and Nationwide Arena and scored a huge payday from the $240 MILLION hockey arena bailout.

    The Wolfes don’t hesitate to align themselves with Democrats such as all Dem City Hall as long as those Dems will do the bidding for the Wolfes. Mayor Coleman and Boss Ginther and the rest of City Council who rely on Ginther for most of their campaign funds all scratch backs for each other.

    It’s the return of the Citizen Kane era.


    That deal had more to do with bailing out Nationwide Insurance, which had been hemorrhaging money since building the arena.

    I am not saying the Dispatch didn’t benefit. But Nationwide was losing tons of cash on the deal.


    I assign low credibility to Media Matters. The organization has its own agenda and does not appear to strive to be objective.
