Crime, smog, traffic and graffiti and all they have to show for it is this crappy newspaper





.

One in a series where we take a look at what's going on with the L.A. Times.


We stopped picking up the Times down here in San Diego about this time of year 8 years ago. We understand every paper has a right to an editorial slant but we expect that slant to be confined to the Op-ed section of the paper. The Times, however, felt compelled to promote their Op-ed section to the front page of their rag during that election cycle and we decided to vote with our wallet.

You could pretty much set your clock on Sunday to the Times having at least two anti-Bush and/or anti-Iraq war feature on the front page of that day's edition. Pops would tell us that sometimes a paper will editorialize by what it chooses to omit as a straight new story. While this is certainly true, the Times had chosen to drop any pretext of subtlety and went in head-long for the hit pieces.


There at it again this election cycle with no fewer than 3 anti-Romney/Ryan pieces on the front page of today's electronic edition.


The article that stuck out for us, though, was the one on Republican candidate for Senate from Missouri, Todd Akin, who claimed the "legitimate rape" seldom makes woman pregnant. He has refused to step out of the race for his reckless and uninformed comments and here is the title of the Times' article documenting this dust-up:


Tea party rogue: Todd Akin defies GOP bosses by staying in race


Now, we know that the Times will never miss an opportunity to bash conservatives and/or the tea party but there is an inconvenience about this title: Akin beat the tea party candidate and the one endorsed by Sarah Palin, Sarah Steelman in the primaries.

That doesn't seem to matter to the Times. And they wonder why they're bankrupt.


As for Akin: 20-25 more years of saying stupid and offensive stuff may just get him elected Vice President.
