(Chuck Muth) – It seems “Sweet Phoebe Purebread,” the communications director for the Nevada Reid-Democrat-Union Party, has her knickers in a knot/tights in a twist over the establishment of our independent Nevada News Bureau.
“Last Tuesday we pointed out that anything coming out of the new Nevada News Bureau – founded as it was by a man so right-wing he fled the Republican party because it wasn’t conservative enough for him – would hardly be ‘news,’” declarethed the Democrats in their most recent Elephant Watch email newsletter. “We revealed the new ‘impartial’ news service as what it really is – an attempt to cloak (Chuck) Muth’s partisan invectives in some kind of legitimacy to further his political agenda.”
Take look at the material which has been published and distributed by the Nevada News Bureau so far and if you can find ANY hint of “partisan invective” – I’ll eat a bug.
As blogger Dullard Mush, certainly no card-carrying member of the Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy, accurately notes, “the real heavy-lifting at the NNB will be by Sean Whaley….a journalist who logged almost two decades in Carson City for the Las Vegas Review-Journal (who) doesn’t exactly fit the profile of a partisan hack. And a look at the first series of articles would tend to bear that out — straight forward, if not a tad mundane, pieces on Nevada government.”
Do Democrats ever get tired of being proved wrong?
Um, forget I even asked that.
