Dallas Morning News gives MLK parade a positive spin; a pro-life march, not so much

If I spent all of my time pointing out examples of liberal bias in the press, I wouldn't have time for much else. I do enough of that already over at When Liberals Attack. However, if you want to see a contrast in coverage of similar events, the Dallas Morning News provided that today. A story by Michael Young put a positive spin on Saturday's Martin Luther King Day parade, highlighting how the weather didn't affect the spirits of the small crowd that turned out. A story by Sam Hodges covering the pro-life march downtown, which was held at about the same time, made no mention of the weather, instead mentioning in the headline and body that the crowd was well below a goal of 10,000 (the exact size was never mentioned). Now, I was told the pro-life crowd was bigger than the MLK crowd, but it really doesn't matter. Both are noble causes that deserve support. So where's the love for the pro-life crowd? Is the crowd size the best angle? I don't know Sam Hodges and we shouldn't question his partiality based on one article, but it is an interesting comparison nevertheless.

Wasting money on the census

I saw this the other day on Fox 4 News and it made me wonder. With the census upon us again, the government is trying hard to make sure Latinos are accurately counted. I'm sure their ideas are well meaning, but the idea being shown in this news report is just a waste of time. The Census Bureau here in Dallas sent out a couple of young mariachis - I guess they were "pop mariachis," as they weren't singing the traditional music, to encourage folks to answer the Census outside of a south Dallas grocery store. Really? Things like this make for good TV but at best, they maybe convinced a few dozen folks walking out of the store to take the census. This is all window dressing so we can later say we tried to count all Latinos. The only thing that works, that solves a lot of problems, is EDUCATION. Of course, that's way too much work. Mariachis are more fun. The bottom line is, we need to change the way the Latino culture thinks. It takes an outreach in the schools, where kids can learn the truth without the fear of government inherent in our culture. If Telemundo and other Spanish-language stations made a commitment to airing less trash and more programming of substance, we could make some progress on this problem.
