wpid-img_6090.jpg

At the Multnomah County Fair today, Republican nominee for Senate Monica Wehby was in the crowd to meet and talk to voters.

Daylight Dissed! Oregonian Trots Out Smear Expert To Attack Citizen Journalist.

Oregonian reporter Harry Esteve smeared City of Springfield. Had to apologize on TV and in print.

You have to laugh about the Oregonian trotting out their most egregious hit-piece artist to attack me because I caught Governor Kitzhaber … wait for it … shopping for eggplant!  I ran into the Governor while he was at shopping at QFC and YouTubed the bizarre coincidence for laughs, and because well, it’s my First Amendment […]

Caught In Lie, Oregon State Senator Plays For Sympathy

Federal Budget Spending

She stands against “intimidation” – when it suits her.

#KorruptKate Komedy

In an unusual move for the folks at The Zero, they published an editorial this morning that was surprisingly positive in its portrayal of Republican candidate for Secretary of State Knute Buehler’s proposal to audit municipalities and agencies most at risk due to increasing PERS payment requirements, in hopes of elevating awareness of just how significant an issue […]

The Oregonian Publishes Yet Another Blatant Bias Piece Disguised As News Coverage

Oregonian box

Knute Buehler is a Republican running for statewide office in Oregon. Therefore, whatever coverage he receives from the newspaper of record is typically scant. The Oregonian has a long, rich history of liberal bias, and yesterday’s story about Dr. Buehler is no exception. In a news article about a press conference he held, the reporter, […]

Media Manipulation of George Zimmerman Tapes Still Driving the Trayvon Martin Narrative

This morning, during the 8am hour, the faithful listeners of the Bob Miller show on KPAM 860am were posed with a thought experiment.

Oregonian reports on Portland’s misplaced priorities: Despite record revenues, Portland’s transportation bureau is broke

Oregonian reports on Portland’s misplaced priorities: Despite record revenues, Portland’s transportation bureau is broke

The Oregonian seems to have picked up on our earlier posts about misplaced priorities and self-inflicted budget woes at the Portland Bureau of Transportation. The story so far can be told in four pictures. Record revenues at the Portland Bureau of Transportation. “Discretionary” money has almost doubled since 2000. The city’s excuse that there it has […]

Metro’s in hot water again. The agency “manages” the Portland area’s 14 pioneer cemeteries of historical significance, and they also sell burial plots in them. Although there have been rumors over the years, the recent discovery of skeletal remains at a Metro dumpsite in Fairview have brought matters into sharp focus. The current cemetery manager, […]

beau and sam

Unspeakable

Unspeakable

Image via Wikipedia In Portland, it’s considered extremely bad form to discuss light rail using anything other than superlatives. Thus, in a Zero story about record gang violence, we get this: A 14-year-old boy lying on the corner of Northeast Multnomah Street and 11th Avenue, shot in the head and back. The killing, which took place April 18 […]

  • Black Population Trends September 25, 2017
    Between 2015 and 2016, the total population of the San Francisco-Oakland urban area grew by 13,773 people, but the black population shrank by 5,839, suggesting that Bay Area land-use policies continue to push low-income people out of the region by making housing unaffordable.
