NEW ORLEANS — Former New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin, who led the city during its darkest days after Hurricane Katrina, will be thrust back into the spotlight this week when he goes on trial in a corruption case that mushroomed at the end of his eight-year tenure.

How come it doesn't say, "Birbery trial begins for Democrat Mayor? It seems to me that an earlier article this week highlighted the ex VA Governor who is in trouble as a republican. The bias of this newspaper is so obvious it's ridiculous.

This is the same guy our liberal press worshiped following Katrina.

Might as well just call this newspaper "The Democrat Star and Tribune"

We all remember Nagin. The incompetent boob who specialized in desperate finger pointing in order to save his own hide. Kind of a like a certain someone who resides in the White House. And now Nagin's in hot water again. What a shock.

Another black leader elected by 90% of black voters that don't know what they want out of leader. Hey, sounds familiar!

Paulus and Johndot, I just did a search on startribune.com for the article about ex-virginia governor. I found the article, and it does not mention his party affiliation in the article's title, it does however mentions that he is a Republican within the text. In the same way that this article mentions in the text that Nagin is a Democrat. I'd like to ask both of you why you were acusing this newspaper of bias in this article ?? Are you just screaming "media bias" whenever you read an unfavorable article about Republicans ?

johndont- I prefer calling it "The RedStar". As far as it's bias goes, they are pretty sneaky. In 2004, their writers (RedStar writewrs NOT AP) describe the interminably boring 2 middle days of the Democratic National Convention as a series of prominent Democrats presenting their ideals and visions for America. A week later, the same two writers called the same two days of boring crap from The Republican Convention as them espousing their "rhetoric". Simple little words like that, inserted in every type of article from traffic to weather to real news, always seeming to slant the perception to the left, is what is so slimy. That and what they don't cover- shootings anywhere are trumpeted for days weeks or months, but crimes thwarted by gun users are never printed. Bill G.
