More Laziness at the Lazy C?

by lewwaters

Has Lefty Lou been reading my blog again? In my election predictions that I posted on September 20, 2014, I wrote of Lisa Ross;

“Ross is more of a novice without a clue of what she is doing, evidenced by her recent side by side interview on CVTV, reading every answer to questions, including her personal history, verbatim, word for word from papers held up at eye level.”

In the Lazy C’s endorsement of Jim Moeller posted October 13, 2014, they write about Lisa Ross;

“Moeller’s superiority in this race was evident during a recent side-by-side interview on CVTV, where Ross read all her answers verbatim off prepared notes — including her personal history.”

Your original thought and words, Lou?

Columbian’s Rice Patting Herself on the Back (Again)

by lewwaters

The Columbian has for several years now displayed a jealous attitude towards citizen blogs, often alleging that we are the reason their subscription rate continues to falter, we are not “professionals” and even so far as that we do little more than mislead the public. In reality, it is obvious they feel they are the only ‘bona fide’ source of information for Southwest Washington.

Seeing that their attacks against citizen blogs were not silencing us, someone at the paper decided they would do us one better and open their own blogs on their own website, apparently not realizing it was just an extension of their heavily biased newspaper by “professional journalists” who maintained their regularly seen bias on their blogsites, creating little more that a less restrictive site to bash and demean Republicans, especially 17th Legislative District Senator Don Benton, County Commissioner Tom Mielke and now County Commissioner elect David Madore.

A simple look at the interactions under many of their posts and lack of citizen comments shows that we who operate citizen blogs regularly see far more engagement and discussion of viewpoints than they do. That fact does little to dissuade the Columbian’s writers from puffing out their chests and boasting of how they are still better than their citizens they allege they serve.
