Stipulated: The Star Tribune is a de facto DFL PR firm. That its editorial slant is to the left is no surprise or problem.
Their “journalistic” slant, on the other hand? Democracy can not survive without institutions holding government accountable – and in Minnesota the ones ones you have are…
…PowerLine, AlphaNews, Tom Hauser on a good day, and the NARN.
Case in point: in a couple decades of reporting on sex trafficking cases, I do not recall the Star Tribune mentioning the occupations of the accused. Certainly not in the lede.
Talk about not so much burying the lede as inverting the story.
Is the Strib trying to tie Enbridge 3 – one of the DFL’s betes noire – to sex trafficking?
Given that the pipeline workers’ day jobs are paragraph 10 importance to the story, not headlines, waht do you think?
