The JT's main front page story Sunday was about the local Tea Party's bonfire in Caledonia. We also covered the bonfire (Pete provided, arguably, the most extensive coverage of the event), which was big news. Any time 3,000 people get together for political action, it's a meaningful event.
The JT didn't rest with coverage of the bonfire, though. They ran a second front page story on a 'voter ire' with Obama, particularly in Massachusetts where Republican Scott Brown holds a slight lead over Democrat Martha Coakley.
If that's not enough, opening the Sunday paper to page 3A finds two more anti-Obama stories covering the whole page. One has the headline, "Hope dissolves into disappointment," and a second story on the same page is headlined, "Poll shows growing disappointment with Obama's first-year performance." Catch a theme there? Obama is a "disappointment."
If the majority of the first three pages of the news section wasn't enough space dedicated to documenting the president's struggles, the Business page's lead story is about local construction contractors upset over Congress' proposed health care reforms.
And the paper's Sunday editorial attacked Democrats for picking on the tanning and "Bo-Tox" industries and making other deals to get the health care reforms passed.
For at least one day, and probably many more to come, hopefully we can rest the idea of the "liberal" media.
