The Columbus Dispatch Pisses Its Pants

July 2, 2011

How else can one explain it. After numerous articles written by its front line reporters showing the displeasure Ohioans have with Governor  Kasich, the Columbus Dispatch returns to its conservative roots.

I recently posted a comment on the Buckeye State Blog that after a bevy of unfavorable articles about W., the Columbus Dispatch endorsed Bush right before the election. It appears this time they’re not willing to wait that long.

First came an oped announcing that Kasich’s budget was historic. That’s if you consider balancing the budget on the backs of poor people and the middle class historic.

Moreover, the budget gives a raise to the 8 percent richest Ohioans.

Add to that today’s oped where they thank the teachers for giving up pay raises they bargained for.

Also in today’s paper they have an article with Kasich trashing the left.

With over 1,000,000 SB5 opponents  and Kasich’s low poll numbers, it’s clear the left leg is getting pissed down again by the Dispatch.

    Antonie Brongers didn’t let a little cool, windy weather keep him from making money from his makeshift lemonade stand near the Upper Arlington Labor Day Arts Festival yesterday.

  • Middle class slipping away in former ‘city of industry’
    MORAINE, Ohio — The economic crash in Moraine was so powerful that even Mother Nature took notice. As water-guzzling auto and paper plants shut down, and jobs and people moved away, the water table in the Dayton area began to rise — a total of 13 feet since 1980. The University of Dayton Arena and other buildings had to install pumps to prevent flooding. […]
