Textbook Bias: AP Acts As If Illinois’ Chronic Delinquency in Paying Its Bills Is a New Development

Posted on 31 January 2016

A Saturday report by Associated Press political writer John O’Connor acts as if the the sordid history of fiscal irresponsibility in the State of Illinois is a new development brought on by a stubborn Republican governor in just the past seven months.

What hogwash. The state has had a large backlog of delinquent unpaid bills for a decade, if not longer. Five years ago, a Democratic governor and a Democrat-dominated legislature enacted steep income and property tax increases, promising that the additional taxes raised would enable the state to whittle down the unpaid backlog, solve the state’s horrific unfunded pension liabilities problem, and generally right the fiscal ship. Naturally, they did no such thing. O’Connor also didn’t find any of the tax or bill-delinquency history worth recounting in his 800-word report.

WashPost Writer: Despite Venezuela’s Collapse, Government Giveaways Are a ‘Good Idea in General’

Posted on 31 January 2016

In trying to explain the current situation in Venezuela, the Washington Post’s Matt O’Brien, in a post at the paper’s Wonkblog, also inadvertently identified two reasons why authoritarian socialist tyrants like Huge Chavez and Nicolas Maduro are able to achieve and retain power.

The formula is simple: When you first gain power, garner international and media goodwill by giving stuff away, like housing and gasoline. That wlll earn you props from the likes of O’Brien and liberals everywhere who have come to believe that doing so “is a good idea in general.” Meanwhile, you can work in the background to overturn whatever checks and balances your country’s political system might have. If the populace finally figures out what you’re really up to and rises up in opposition, they can’t stop you — even if your party gets blown out in elections and takes over what has become, thanks to you, an impotent legislature.
