Goose Gander Issues


For John, BLUFWhy a Republican Party?  So the media can have a double standard.  Nothing to see here; just move along.

Law Professor Ann Althouse thinks The Washington Post is unbalanced in its reporting of Freshman Senators, smearing Senator Ted Cruz for being aggressive, but ignoring the same actions by Senator Elizabeth Warren.

What reason does Professor Althouse have for expecting an even handed approach from the Main Stream Media?  We know Senator Cruz is a buffoon, and probably went to a no-name law school, and Senator Warren is a Harvard Law School Professor.  Is any more information needed?

Well, the other thing is that Senator Cruz is racially dishonest, in that he is a Republican.  Like Senator Marco Rubio.  In contrast to Senator Cruz' racial dishonesty, there is Senator Bob Menendez (D-NJ), who may have violated campaign finance laws by failing to pay for multiple trips on the private jet of a campaign supporter.  The destination was the Dominican Republic, where he allegedly engaged in paid sex with one or more underage prostitutes.  At least Brietbart is on it.

UPDATE:  Added Info on Senator Cruz attending a no-name law school.

  From Wikipedia:  "Cruz earned his Bachelor of Arts from Princeton University and his J.D., magna cum laude, from Harvard Law School. He was an editor of the Harvard Law Review, an executive editor of the Harvard Journal of Law & Public Policy, and a founding editor of the Harvard Latino Law Review."  He must have been pretty busy keeping up.

There are some implicit assumptions here. If both are aggressive and its bad that both are not covered equally, that would assume that all forms of aggression are equal.

Moreover, I'm somewhat disappointed that you brought up Princeton as an issue. Nobody else is so pointing to it as a differentiator is an obvious straw man.

And, apparently, they are not all equal.

Regarding the college, actually, I would have dropped the Princeton thing if it hadn't meant I would have had to craft a new leadin.  I was rushed for time.  Also, I was surprised.  I thought I would be naming some fly-over state university.  Then Harvard Law Review popped up, and those other two journals.  So, I was then going for the humor.
