TIME wakes from longtime sleep, is shocked to see debt everywhere!!!


Inquiring minds are laughing as the Lame Stream Media is once again showing their blatent Leftist leanings in TIME’s article about how states are awash in debt. Only TIME (with their incredible Progressive bias) would begin such an article tying the one governor :

In New Jersey, taxes are high, the budget’s a mess, government is inefficiently organized, and the public pension fund is blown to kingdom come. Which makes New Jersey a lot like most other states in 2010. What makes the state unusual is its rookie governor, a human bulldozer named Chris Christie, who vowed to lead like a one-termer and is keeping his promise with brio. He has proposed chopping $11 billion from the state’s budget — more than a quarter of the total — for fiscal year 2011 (which starts July 1). He’s backing a constitutional cap on property taxes in hopes of pushing the state’s myriad villages and townships to merge into more efficient units. He’s locked in an ultimate cage match with the New Jersey teachers’ union. It may be the bitterest political fight in the country — and that’s saying something this year. A union official recently circulated a humorous prayer with a punch line asking God to kill Christie. You know, New Jersey humor. And in an interview with the Wall Street Journal, Christie didn’t talk about the possibility that his fiscal initiatives might be compromised or defeated; he pictured himself “lying dead on State Street in Trenton,” the state capital. Presumably that was a figure of speech.

Has there ever been a longer lead paragraph in TIME? How many slights and jibes can you pack into one paragraph? Notice how the writer pins “high taxes” on Chris Christie? And could they have used his name any later? Afterall, this is basic journalism where they pack the facts in first, isn’t it? Obama never seems to get this treatment. Maybe this explains (yet again) why journalistic iconic institutions are failing everywhere.
