Wash. Examiner's Right-Wing Bias Spreading to Sports Page
Topic: Washington Examiner

The Washington Examiner already has a dogmatically right-wing editorial page. Its news pages have included fawning profiles of conservatives such as Brit Hume, Dana Perino and John Boehner. It keeps adding right-wingers to its staff.

The bias is now apparently spreading to the sports page. A Nov. 23 column by Rick Snider ostensibly criticizing Obama for supporting a college football playoff system descended into gratuitous Obama- (and Clinton-) bashing:

Worry about getting a puppy first. Golden retrievers are nice. But, solve the world’s ills before spending even five minutes on a college championship series.

In other words, mind your own business.

[...]

Sorry, Mr. President-elect, but we need your eyes on other balls. Like tax breaks for sports writers. Health care paying for hair plugs and liposuction. Early retirement for 48-year-olds.

But a college playoff system? Listen to your wife’s chuckle. She’s the smart one in the family.

Uh oh, the Clintons must be back.

What does name-checking the Clintons have to do with a college football system? Somehow we suspect Mark Tapscott approves.
