(Rolando Larraz/Las Vegas Tribune) – The Las Vegas Review-Journal, the only daily and “largest newspaper in the state” may be confusing, misleading or misinforming the few people that read its newspaper when it comes to news in politics.
First, the paper makes readers believe that its publisher doesn’t like Sen. Harry Reid since its flamboyant person-in-charge attacks the senator almost every week, or at least when he
On page 3B of the Tuesday, November 10 edition, in an article about a former education board member who plans to run for Harry Reid’s seat in the US Senate, the newspaper mentioned all the candidates in the Republican race except one.
None of the candidates mentioned in the article are in the best position to win, or have the cleanest background according to their record, but the ghostwriter of the article ignored that fact.
Sharron Angle, a four-term Nevada State Assemblywoman from Reno and the first candidate to file with the FEC in August of 2009, was not even mentioned in the article.
Angle has already raised more than $200,000, but the daily newspaper capriciously and erroneously continues to ignore her participation in the race to unseat its alleged foe, Harry Reid.
Three of the other candidates have serious “black marks” against them which should be brought to the public’s attention — if the publication has the intention of keeping the public informed.
But it seems that such has not been the case thus far with that self-proclaimed “only voice in Clark County.” We can only suggest why.
Candidate Danny Tarkanian is a two-time loser in state races with no experience holding an office, (deleted by publisher). Tarkanian, a Republican, (deleted by publisher), but the Review-Journal insisted on keeping its readers ignorant and blindfolded as well as holding back the fact that he donated money to the campaign of Democrat Shelly Berkley.
Another Republican mentioned in the article in which the Review-Journal completely ignored Sharron Angle is Sue Lowden, the former one-time State Senator and former State Republican Party Chairwoman — who contributed to a Democrat campaign!
Lowden, a former Channel 8 news reporter and the wife of a former piano player-turned-casino owner in less than two years seems to be one of the Review-Journal’s favorite candidates for now.
The Review-Journal forgets to inform its readers that Sue Lowden’s husband, Paul, was granted the gaming license exclusively and directly by the Chairman of the Nevada Gaming Commission who overruled the decision of the Gambling Control Board and the vote of the other four members of the Nevada Gaming Commission that he chaired.
That chairman is today the man that Sue Lowden claims to be running against, US Senator Harry Reid.
The Review-Journal failed to tell its readers that Republican Sue Lowden donated $10,000 to the campaign of Democrat Harry Reid, the man she is supposed to be running against today.
The Review-Journal also forgot to tell its readers that the same former Nevada Gaming Commission Chairman that gave Paul Lowden his gaming license is the same US Senator Sue Lowden is running against today, the same one to whom she made that $10,000 contribution, and the same one that served as the Lowden’s attorney and apparently remains a close friend.
What we assume was a limited space problem did not allow the Review-Journal to tell its readers that Assemblywoman Sharron Angle is a Conservative candidate who believes in the law and the Constitution of the United States of America.
Anyone who wants to learn more about a decent woman who has done much and has worked for the people of Nevada as no one else in the running has can go to www.SharonAngle.com and read her qualifications — because most likely they will not be able to read them in the “largest and the most powerful newspaper“ in the state.
