Mapes Wins Gobbels Award for Feb. 28, 2009 Regarding Rating of Sen.Murray as Most Liberal

OKAY, Mapes, this must be a test of your readers to see whether they catch you for writing a poor piece.

1.You include irrelevant stats regarding Representative Hooley and Senator Smith while not mentioning some others.

2.You do not mention the perspective of the publisher, David Bradley, which is the Fulbright/Harvard/Georgetown career track that is similar to WJ Clinton's and that he donated twice the amount of campaign funds to Hillary Clinton as he did to any other candidate. While the ratings are based on votes in the 110th Congress, whether an "Aye" vote on any issue constitutes it being either "liberal" or "conservative" is subjective. It also does not reflect what amendments were attempted.

3. You say "Greg Walden, D-Ore., 282nd." If you do not know Representative Walden is a Republican, you would not or should not be a reporter in politics.

4. You claim there are two Republican rivals and claim she is "comfortably ahead," without naming them. Not naming them would be evidence of bias in reporting.

You win the Joseph Gobbels Award for "Public Enlighenment in Journalism" for the day for this piece.

Famed Washington journalist Robert Novak called him a "hero."He was recently ranked as the Senate's most conservative member by National Journal and as the No. 1 senator voting for responsible tax and spending policies by the National Taxpayers Union. DeMint understands the greatness of a country is found in its people and values, not in its government Republican Leader of the House, John Boehner House Republican Leader and a staunch opponent of pork-barrel politics, John is fighting to eliminate wasteful spending, create jobs, and balance the federal budget without raising taxes. He has challenged Republicans in the 111th Congress to be not just the party of “opposition,” but the party of better solutions to the challenges facing the American people. Under the new House GOP leadership team John leads, House Republicans have formed “solutions groups” to develop principled alternatives on the issues that matter most to American families and small businesses, and launched the GOP State Solutions project, an initiative aimed at bringing reform-minded Republicans at the state and federal levels together to promote common-sense solutions from outside the Beltway.
