Mobile Press-Register engages in Big Lies

Joe Conason's Big Lies: The Right-Wing Propaganda Machine and How It Distorts the Truth might apply here. The Mobile Press-Register, one of three Newhouse papers that are all clearly right leaning, confirms they are the most radical with their Step toward drilling and common sense Editorial in today's paper. Leading off with a positive word for Jeffy B. Sessions it goes downhill from the get go. "There was little or no price then for politicians being militant about not disturbing sea creatures and caribou herds in Alaska." makes the cut. The MP-R uses "rabid anti-oil ideology", "the Democrats' goal of environmental perfection", and "the anti-oil rhetoric of the environmental movement" in their propaganda. Those lines are hardly fair, responsible, or even remotely original. I've noted their radicalism on Don Siegelman, education, ... The Mobile Press-Register is clearly part of the right wing noise machine. John Gunn
