For many years, the local Bay Area Citizen center in Clear Lake area was edited by an independent woman who clearly sought to provide a balanced set of articles, editorials and letters to the editor. A year or two ago, she was replaced by a new multi-paper editor, Jim Molony, who kept his former HCN paper(s) Pearland Journal, and took over the Citizen as well as the Friendswood Journal. Not sure when he took over the Pasadena Citizen and Deer Park Broadcaster, but he controls them also.
Instantly, the newspapers shifted from a balanced approach, slamming to far right wing propaganda from a variety of extremist think tanks and tea party.
This week, looking over the Bay Area Citizen and its website, the following list of tea party right wing trash was published, and not one piece from the wide middle, let alone the left of center where 40% of local Bay Area Citizens cast their votes in partisan elections.
How does the local weekly paper look in your community? Falling off the right wing cliff?
If you happen to see Jim Molony in your neighborhood, ask him why the local papers have become so overwhelmingly biased to the tea party. Or give him a call or send an email. It is certainly time to stop paying subscriptions or even reading these papers.
