  1. Excellent analysis.

    I especially agree that they need to do investigative reporting. It’s too bad that they are reluctant to make that their mainstay instead of reguritating AP news pieces that anyone can link to on Drudge (if the astute readers hold hold their noses against the anti-American bias and try to ferret out the real facts, usually placed in the last paragraphs and contradicting their lead paragraphs and headlines. I have noticed that the newspapers often leave off the salient last paragraph so that the real facts are never known by the average reader — AAARRRGGGHHH!).

    The Sun-Times can’t die soon enough to suit me. Their whole premise of being the voice of the Left should condemn them in the eyes of any rational reader.
