Tacky, Lazy C, Really Tacky

by lewwaters

Trash 1In spite of the claims of Editor Lou Brancaccio, the Columbian, better known as the Lazy C for their very selective reporting, is as liberal biased as any media source out here.

While conservatives frequently are threatened over comments, warned that they are on thin ice for something they might say, others apparently get a free reign to spew hate filled vitriol against certain people the Lazy C hates with a passion.

Time and again this is shown and still, Brancaccio denies the bias or the hate they hold for elected officials like David Madore, Tom Mielke and yes, mostly Don Benton.

And again, they are caught red handed in their bias as we read a comment left on the forum section that I refer to as “the Dungeon.”

Benton, Heart Attack

The paper has been contacted by several for this vitriolic comment left prior to 7 AM this morning. At the time of this writing, it stands untouched.

One person complaining about the commenter looking forward to an elected officials death was told that John Hill, moderator wasn’t in the office today, but he would forward the complaint and have it handled.

From their own Community Guidelines

Keep it clean. Controversial topics occasionally prompt emotional responses, and we love to see energetic debate and vigorous discussion. But before you wade into those conversations, keep a few things in mind. Don’t use profanity (including alternate characters to mask swear words), obscenities, personal attacks, libel, defamation or hate speech. Steer clear of name calling and posting anything that can be interpreted as threatening, harassing, obscene, pornographic, sexist or racist. Derogatory use of sexual orientation, race, age, gender, religion, nationality, disability and so on is not allowed.

Yet, over 24 hours later, nothing! Apparently, as long as it is Sen. Don Benton, a Republican that the Lazy Z has a long history of violating their own guidelines in attacking, in spite of over 20 years in elected office, it is tolerated.

I have no doubt that if anybody made such a comment directed at Barack Obama or even if they looked forward to 49th Legislative district Rep. Jim ‘sue your constituents to invalidate their votes to make raising their taxes easier’ Moeller contracted AIDs, it would be removed immediately and rightfully so.

No doubt whoever wrote it likely would be banned.

But since it is directed at Sen. Don Benton, it remains, untouched.

Tacky, very tacky.

UPDATE: Nearly two days later, the offensive comment has been taken down. We have to ask, why was it allowed to remain for such a length of time and after numerous complaints?

  1. I’m still wondering when it is enough time to be seen by everyone before it is removed. Just flat wrong.

  2. I see it still sets there. Hard to miss considering it is the very first comment.

  3. No change on this, I take it?

  4. As of 1 PM, it is untouched.

  5. Nothing surprises me on the forum, Lew. They’ve become extremely lenient in recent months on the basement of the birdcage liner.

    Remember the one named “alleycat” and what he used to do??? Same MO, different avatar and was kicked off the comment section before the big changeover to Facebook. This isn’t the first “demented” statement by holycrapola. He does it to get people riled up…almost as if it’s on purpose to get people talking. Most the time, comments such as these are shrugged off by the few people who still linger in the forum.

    Consider the source!!!

  6. 11 PM on the 17th and still remains, untouched.

    I can only conclude it is okay to wish death on someone on the Columbian, as long as that someone is a Republican.

  7. It took them close to two days, but the comment appears gone now.

  8. Regarding your comment at 11:06 pm Lew…I believe you are right as evidenced by the wild banter by the one you speak about. They know I’m a registered Republican. I’ve let it be known many times on the forum. Just sneeze and the attacks begin! Now I’m labeled as Judas (and a few other things) because I stood up to the person and said something to them about their disgusting wish and that I commented here on your blog. Doesn’t this just bring back memories to you from when you once posted there???

  9. I laugh when I read my blog is a “biased cesspool” from the very one who rants and raves against everything conservative in the vilest of ways.

    And somehow, we are to accept that he is not biased too?

    That one is the most bitter one I have seen.

  10. Deja Vu for me!!!
