Columbus Ohio residents were treated to yet more of the Columbus Dispatch Printing Company's 'fair and balanced' judgment; Pat Tiberi has gotten the local daily newspaper's endorsement for Congress.
Hopefully, the CD readers will remember their past 'judgment' of the printing company's endorsements, including George W. Bush for president in both 2000 and 2004 (when shortly before the 2004 election, even the Dispatch seemed to know better.) In the midst of this latest economic crisis, that presidential endorsement has shown where the loyalties of the Wolfe family media empire really LIE.
First, the fact that a local printing company's public information monopoly would find it within their responsibility to endorse a candidate rather than inform the population of where the candidates stand on the issues that affect them most, is discrediting to not only the endorsement, but the legitimacy of the newspaper itself.
I am writing this article for all of my friends, because it is a community issue that affects us all, but the message is most urgent for women. This note is about sexual assault and a violent sexual culture at many bars and clubs around campus that we should all be challenging.
