The name and the photograph of the cop-killer HAVE been all over the news for the past week, XBC. Check out the websites for the NY Daily News and the NY Post if you want. Heck... Google it, Yahoo, Bing, whatever... it's NOT a difficult story to find. (I am certainly not going to type the killer's name here, because that guy does not deserve any sort of notoriety at all. It's Officer…

So, OK, "the media" thinks that stuff matters. Good for them. I can't help what some reporter (or their editor) may think, and neither can you (unless you get a job as a news editor, and then you get to decide which stories get covered & how they get reported). Fortunately, we DO have the deductive ability and the free will to pick and choose the things that we decide to accept as "fact", AYHSMB.…

The media specifically hid the race of peeps of the knockout game and police/da's routinely refuse to name black crimes against whites as hate crimes but have no problem doing that to whites at the drop of a hat. If you can't see that the media in this country has an agenda and a narrative they are pushing then you are blind at best. The false campus rape crisis should show you this as well…

So... again... What's the point? Simply that bias exists in the news media?? OK, absolutely it does; there always has been bias and there always will be; that goes back to the earliest newspapers. The reason for that is because human beings report the news, and human beings do have biases. Until that changes (which it never will), yes, media bias will be a thing that happens. Don't…

So why don't you tell us why it matters when a black man is shot by a white cop???? Dozens of headlines and lead sentences start with those facts so why don't they start al stories the same way? You don't have to answer that really because we already know the answer. Most newsrooms have adopted a policy of not identifying race when preps are black. When black mobs were beating and…

Rauner, running mate differ on social issues

Rauner, running mate differ on social issues

1 year, 2 months ago by Bob Gough

Evelyn Sanguinetti said she disagreed with the gubernatorial candidate on the issue of life and of gay marriage

GOP gubernatorial candidate Bruce Rauner introduced his running mate, Wheaton City Councilwoman Evelyn Sanguinetti, to patrons at the newly rebuilt Sprout's Inn during a heavy lunchtime crowd on Wednesday.

Rauner announced Sanguinetti's selection Tuesday morning and then took her on a statewide fly-around lasting Wednesday and Thursday.

The two spoke to the local media after shaking hands with the lunch crowd.

After their campaign platform discussion regarding Illinois' sad financial condition, the duo was asked about social issues.

Rauner said he wanted to put gay marriage on a referendum before the voters and said he supported a woman's "ability to choose...I believe in some common sense regulations and restrictions so it's rare and safe, but I support a woman's ability to decide."

Sanguinetti, however, differed with the top of the ticket.

"On the issue of life...I must say, my mother chose me and she had me at age15," she said. "For this reason, I am pro-life. I also believe in marriage with the traditional defintion."

Sanguinetti added that while she and Rauner "are apart on social issues", they both recognize that Illinois is broken in many other ways.

Regarding ADM's request for $20 million in tax breaks to keep its corporate headquarters and the 150 employees that go with it in Illinois, more than likely moving from Decatur to Chicago, Rauner said the climate must be changed and improve and the state should "move away" from special deals for business.
