It’s just too glaring (and weird even by Las Vegas Sun standards) to ignore.
The Las Vegas Sun, the newspaper that has never — ever — printed a disparaging word about Sen. Harry Reid in his entire career and, believe me, won’t this election cycle either, treated the news that Nevada now topped the nation in unemployment with zero coverage.
On a day in which Sen. Harry Reid, Shelley Berkley and the Sharron Angle campaign all commented on the development, the Sun went dark. Why? Because that awful development in the misery of Nevada workers cuts poorly for Sen. Reid’s re-election chances. Instead, the Sun’s lead story was (and I kid you not) a puff piece on model car racing. The newspaper’s lead editorial was some canned-looking piece on IBM creating a computer than can play "Jeopardy."
Which brings me to my summer drinking game involving Sun political columnist Jon Ralston. As you will recall, the game’s rules are these: Each time Jon writes a critical column of Sharron Angle, pour a shot glass. And, each time Jon writes a critical column on Harry Reid, drink the shot.
You’ll be stone cold sober in November.
If the Sun can’t even report the news that Nevada is No. 1 in unemployment in the nation, do you think it will print any kind of critical analysis of Sen. Harry Reid, even if Jon Ralston was so inclined, which he most certainly is not. You only need to look at his Twitter posts to see his bias against Angle and Republicans in general.
