That's right, the Pioneer Press ran this story--about how the most influential national politician in Minnesota was alleging an Islamist, anti-American conspiracy inside the U.S. State Department--on page two. What did the PiPress paper run on page one? The more important story, in their view: how to get in to see the new 'Batman' movie. And Stillwater won't be holding its Lumberjack Days Festival.
This should trigger something in your head about why and how Minnesota government gets chronically paralyzed by kooks at the extremes, about about why and how the MN GOP came to be dominated by liars, nuts, extremists, and con men. If this is how the Pioneer Press calibrates its coverage of the misdeeds of the highest profile politician in Minnesota--how trustworthy do you think the PiPress is on the less notorious stories? On the budget story, on the voting ID story, on federal news stories? This is cowardly, fish-wrapper cr*p journalism, from one of the two most influential papers in the state.
