NC Lt. Governor Doesn’t Take Media Spin Lying Down – #nced #ncpol

Gotta love Lt. Governor Dan Forest. He’s been a straight shooter since day one and continues to be. Even in the face of clear media bias and spin, he refuses to back down.

Forest predicted at the January State Board of Education meeting that the media would use this report in a spintastic way.

Dr. Terry Stoops noted that Forest said the report would, “the fuel the media uses for the next year to criticize whatever we’re doing.”

The Lt. Governor’s predication came true.

Ellmers gets McClatchy Treatment (Update)

Imagine if this was a Democrat Female Representative? Likely that you wouldn’t have even heard of the story.

Via Agent Pierce Said:

August 21; ’12: News & Observer Publisher Orage Quarles was not arrested Tuesday on charges of trafficking in child pornography and white slavery. As to whether Quarles or N&O Editor John Drescher routinely expose themselves to pedestrians in Nash Square, FBI officials have not returned our calls…..

Does that headline “grab you”? Not a single word of the above is untrue nor would Quarles nor Drescher deny one bit of it.

Welcome to the dumpster diving world of McClatchy Corporation. McClatchy owns North Carolina’s two largest daily newspapers – Raleigh’s News & Observer and the Charlotte Observer.

Tuesday morning readers of both papers were greeted with the headline:

“Renee Ellmers (R-NC) Went To Israel But Did Not Go Skinny Dipping”

Media Bias Alert: Charlotte Observer Headlines Only Poll With Obama Ahead

Prepping for more water carrying during the upcoming DNC in Charlotte, the Charlotte Observer’s recent article headlines the only poll showing Obama ahead in North Carolina:
Poll: Obama holds onto slight lead over Romney in N.C.

RALEIGH – Democratic President Barack Obama holds a narrow lead over Republican Mitt Romney in North Carolina, according to a new poll.

Obama has a 49-46 percent lead over Romney, according to a survey by Public Policy Polling, a Democratic-leaning firm based in Raleigh. The lead is within the margin of error.

Then scroll down to the bottom:

Other recent polls by Rasmussen Reports have shown Romney up 49-44, Civitas Institute has shown Romney up 49-48, PPP, has shown Obama up 47-46, and Project New American has shown Romney up 49-48.

The article, of course, doesn’t link to the actual poll. Full press release is here. Buried down in the questions asked, we find this:

Q17 If you are a Democrat, press 1. If a Republican,
press 2. If you are an independent or identify
with another party, press 3.
Democrat ……………………………………………….. 45%
Republican……………………………………………… 33%
Independent/Other…………………………………… 21%

Gee, +12 Democrat sampling over Republican and +24 over Independent.
