In the past week, I've read two front page articles in the New York Times about right wing, corporatist, Tennessean bankster, Harold Ford Jr, "considering" a primary run against Senator Kirsten Gillibrand. How about coverage of Jonathan Tasini, who actually is running a primary campaign against Gillibrand?
Tasini ran in the 2006 senatorial primary against Hillary Clinton, who hugely outspent him, and refused to debate him. Plus, NY1 barred him from their political forum, despite the fact that he met all the criteria. Still, Tasini got a remarkable 17% of the vote!
Sure, I understand why the New York Times Corporation prefers Ford to the liberal New York union guy, Tasini, but it smacks of yellow journalism.
