Those inattentive folks at the seriously failing Arizona Republic newspaper, have problems that far surpass the Hillary-endorsing newspaper’s out-of-step leftist bent. As a case in point, Tuesday‘s hard-copy edition ran an opinion piece that was an attention grabber.
Topping a rational “Your Turn” column was this headline, “The US can’t afford to stay closed.” The co-authors are identified under their photos as, “Sens. Rand Paul and Andy Biggs.”
Make no mistake. Conservative Andy Biggs is definitely someone we’d be happy to see in the U.S. Senate. However, the former Arizona State Senate president is currently serving his second term representing Arizona’s Congressional District 5 residents in the U.S. House of Representatives. That fact obviously missed the attention of the careless hacks still employed at the newspaper in the wake of mass layoffs, pay cuts and furloughs.
Blithely undisturbed by the daily’s daily flubs, exemplified by this monumental list of Corrections and Clarifications, is the inanely grinning executive editor Greg Burton — except when comparing his remaining staff to “crackpots and criminals.” He puts on a happy face to thank the dwindling number of readers overpaying for being fed leftist slop as he prizes newsroom diversity above factual reporting while promising more of the same to subscribers.
What an inducement!
