The Trib, Again

They never fail.

In an editorial in today's Tribune-Review, we find yet another "warning" about how inefficient wind power is. It's from Manhattan Institute senior fellow Robert Bryce.

Now, let's get to work. We all know the drill.

According to the Media Transparency project at mediamatters.org, foundations controlled by Richard Mellon Scaife have funneled about $4.58 million ($693,000 from Carthage and $3,815,000 from Sarah Scaife) to the Manhattan Institute over the years.

And, of course, no mention of that money in an editorial touting the research from a senior fellow there.

Another lesson in how the right wing media functions.

I've followed this blog for a few weeks because it was listed as one of PA's best political blogs. But it seems to me to be totally fixated on the Tribune-Review, to the exclusion of everything else going on in the State, the country, and the world.

I'm in Philadelphia, I don't much care about the Tribune-Review, I know its a right-wing operation, end of story. I'm taking your blog off my Google Reader list.

Maybe I'll check back periodically to see if you've gotten over it and moved on.
