A place to rant about politics, the media, and especially the electorate. Much like alcohol, the electorate is both the cause of, and the solution to, all of America's problems.

With which party do you associate an anti-death penalty stance?

If you said the Democratic party, you're on the same page as me.

I find it odd that ABC News reports on REPUBLICAN former Governor Ryan's conviction on 22 counts of cronyism, racketeering, yadayadayada as:

Former Illinois Gov. George Ryan, a strong death penalty critic, was found guilty of fraud, racketeering, and tax evasion

Not only do they NOT mention which party he belongs to, but they went out of their way to put something in the headline THAT HAS NO RELEVANCE to the topic of the headline. And it just so happens that the irrelevant part is most commonly associated with Democrats.

Oh - almost forgot - nowhere in the entire article does it mention that Ryan is a republican. This is so as of 11:30am PST.

allowing some established colleges to award degrees at their discretion.

With all of the attention that this news has been generating, I wouldn't
be surprised to see this loophole closed very soon

Good point. Anthony Zinni replies that he spent his life fighting for our first amendment rights, to be told, upon retiring, that his are limited.

On the other hand, I recall Wesley Clark's having said that congressional republicans (isn't it ever thus?) - my money's on jesse helms' having been one - often approached generals with an invitation to villify the Clinton administration. All the more support for your good argument.

Sorry, cdj, I meant to point out that National Public Radio did exactly the same thing when reporting on the Ryan conviction.

Nice catch, cdj.
I'm sure that they got what they wanted out of the story and their subliminal messaging.
