Slantin MisLeader at it again

One thing that we can count on around here in the Valley is the sun to rise in the east and the Staunton News Leader to be the most unbiased newspaper on the face of the entire planet. Check it out for yourself, today's article "Democrat Sets Sights on 24th", must have the nicest, purtiest, picture of anyone I have ever seen in a news paper short of the bridal section.

We're talking a Jimmy Carter smile,( just with less hair) is the featured photo of Will Hrovat, DEMOCRAT running for Senate.
Meanwhile in the article, Dennis Neal (Editor Extraordinaire) accomplished what he has been hoping for all the time, getting rid of Scott Sayre... Look at the Debate announcement at the end of the article:
"Hrovat becomes the first Democrat to express interest publicly in the 24th District seat. Hanger, a 12-year incumbent, faces a challenge from fellow Republican Scott Sayre and Libertarian Arin Sime.A debate between Hanger and Sime is scheduled for May 29, the same day as the Democratic caucus. "
Hello Dennis, Scott Sayre is going to be there too... Hello... ohhh, that's right, maybe we want to put an impression in the oh, so gullible public's mind, that 'Scott Sayre is Afraid to debate the issues'.
You know what I think? Dennis Neal, and the Slantin MisLeader is afraid to print the news without getting some sort of bias in there that doesn't favor Conservatives...
Look at how they started this article written by David Royer, "Sayre's Primary Challenge has some contemplating a Democratic win":

STAUNTON — Valley Republicans are caught between a rock-solid conservative and an anti-tax newcomer in the June 12 primary.
But some worry that a split primary ticket could cost the GOP a reliable seat in the Senate's 24th District this year. "I think we could lose our seat," said Libby Welsh of Staunton. "It tears our party apart when you run somebody who runs as a Republican against an incumbent."
Rock-solid Conservative? Emmett Hanger? Why not Rock-Ribbed-Reagan-Republican! and as for Sayre.. anti-tax newcomer... Look at the wording... Emmett gets an edification in the word association, while Sayre gets this, "anti" (negative), "newcomer" (amateur)
Then you get a quote that implies that the Republicans are splitting the ticket in a election. I guess that would make sense except for the fact that it's a primary, only one Republican comes out with the nomination....
oh, well, that's just good Hard-Hitting Editorial..errrr, I mean Hard-Hitting Journalism...
I just wonder if Dennis is upset that we have given 'water boy' status to someone else...
Meanwhile, the Sayre campaign rolls on, and immigration is looming large! and speaking of assistant water boy status, DJ takes 'Andy' to the Wood Shed.

I am not aware that Sime will be a part of the debate. The purpose is to hear from the two Republican candidates who will run against each other on June 12.
