Why not lambast the newspapers’ decisions?

I see the Houston Chronicle editorial board bitching and moaning again here about the Citizens United v. FEC decision. This time the topic is a campaign ad running in several East Texas newspapers, but yet again they don’t say anything about those newspapers’ decisions to take that money and run those ads. I wonder if this is because they want a cut of that money too? Really, I can’t blame them for that, but it’s VERY unseemly for newspaper editorialists (not just at the Houston Chronicle) to whine about this the way they have been doing. When you get down to essentials here, the Citizens United v. FEC decision was about business transactions. It takes the consent of the parties on both sides for those transactions to be completed. I know why the editorialists blast only one side, but do they think the readers are so stupid they’re not going to figure this out?

    They like the current occupant of the WH and the DEM majority do think there are enough people out there stupid enough to buy their argument and their agenda. I betting on them being wrong in November.

    That sounds about right, even though people do seem to be waking up. I too am sure they will be proven wrong.

    The Big Media loved McCain Feingold and hated the SCOTUS decision that overturned most of it. Mc-F gave a near monopoly to the Big Media in reporing news and shaping opinions. Citizens United upset that and restored the right of individual citizens to band together and express their views as a group.
