Sunday profiles of Dayton, Horner, Emmer go far beyond typical coverage.
If you are giving such a fair look at the candidates then why can't I read the Emmer profile without logging in as a member? That certainly didn't happen with the Horner profile.
Anyone else having this issue??
I was going to mention the same thing -- hardly fair that the Horner profile (as well as a couple other very flattering editorial/news articles) was front page featured and the Emmer profile is behind the paywall -- only accessaible to "premium" subscribers. On top of that, there's a great deal of repetition, sometimes word for word cut-&-paste from previous articles in all of the articles I've read that proport to be summaries of the day's debate -- so the word count makes it seem like there's a lot there, but the substance is lacking and seems filtered by the biases of the "journalist" and editorial staff. But then, maybe that's because Nancy's definition of "typical" has a lower set of standards than mine.
And don't get me started on the lack of coverage (fair, complete or otherwise)for any political contests beyond the gov's.
i don`t think we are included or its a trust me situation-- those meetings he had with Michell Bachmann should give some clue.----I`m sticking with the Democrats---
Oh, you guys are deep, all right. As in "We've had it up to here". Why is the Emmer piece behind the pay wall when others weren't? How is that promoting fair comment and improving public knowledge about the candidate? Oh, sorry. Emmer's a conservative.
more like bash anybody that does not want to raise taxes and increase welfare.
You read the items on Horner after Sunday. The Emmer stuff will be free tomorrow too.
I doubt if I will ever see it from the most liberal major market media newspaper in the US. You rank right up there with the NY Times, Boston Globe, St Pete Times, and LA Times. Have fun trying to spin the landslide in Nov!!!
