Conservative columnist resigns after
Kentucky paper refuses to run op-ed
on publication’s liberal bias

Daily Caller, by Alex Pappas

Original Article

Posted By:FlyRight, 2/18/2013 6:11:50 PM

The lone conservative columnist at the largest and most influential newspaper in Kentucky says he quit writing for the paper because editors are refusing to publish his opinion piece calling the publication out for its apparent liberal bias. Columnist John David Dyche told The Daily Caller Monday that he’s written for the Louisville Courier-Journal for about a decade and his column had never been rejected until last week. Dyche says he quit after Pam Platt, the paper’s editorial page editor, left him a voicemail on Feb. 11 making it clear they wouldn’t run his piece about the paper’s

Well, let´s see ... maybe they can get Maureen Dowd´s column to fill Mr. Dyches´ spot.

Evidentally "free press" doesn´t include questioning those in the "free press."

I grew up on the Courier Journal. It was biased toward the Dems, but it wasn´t nasty. Then it changed and changed for the worst. I finally quit reading it and dropped my subscription after I simply could not stand it any more.

I quit on my local "newspaper" many years ago. Their editorial page was totally leftist. They felt they were somehow above the fray and hated anyone who they thought worked hard enough to make a buck more then them. They bought most of the new stories from national sources or the New York Times. I hope most of them go bankrupt.

It´s fine for a publication to lean left or right and refuse to publish a screed that runs against the grain. It´s also fine for a columnist to quit said publication.

Hopefully, Mr. Dyche will be picked up elsewhere. At the very least, one hopes he will get his article out on the internet via myriad blogs soon.

The left wing biased editor the The Record of Bergen County is not only biased but ignorant as well.

Pathetic lap dancer to the leftists.

Mt brother wrote for that paper for thirty years. He is the most rabidly liberal person I have ever known. He tolerates no disagreement with his liberal orthodoxy. Makes for very uncomfortable family gatherings. He can go off on a loud rant at the drop of the hat.

The Courier Journal is owned by the Gannett Corp, started by Al Neuharth, a left wing Marxist. Gannett has bought out many papers across the USA. It´s how they are taking over the mean spirited Marxist propaganda.

Pam Platt was subtly transferred from the Florida Today to the Louisville Courier-Journal because of her spiteful Marxist actions.

Best way to stop the Marxist propaganda of any paper is to stop the subscriptions, stop buying from advertisers and stop reading it. Several liberal publications are hurting and they should be hurt right out of publication. Some of them area already laying off staff, we should help them along.

The Courrier Journal is an awful, mean spirited left wing rag. When the call and ask if I want to take advantage of some intro rate I kindly tell them I would not take their paper if they gave it to me. The paper itself gets thinner all the time, they are running it into the ground...

This article links to John David Dyche´s excellent column, which this useless left-wing Kentucky rag refused to run.

We in Dallas are eagerly awaiting the demise of the relentlessly left-wing Dallas Morning News, a paper which adheres to Holy Liberal Orthodoxy even as their audience expresses a clear desire for something else. I´d like to list the dwindling DMN subscribership numbers, but I believe they are still banned from quoting subscriber rates, as they were caught lying to their advertisers about those very numbers. (Hey, what´s one more lie from a leftist rag, right?)

The Burlington (VT) Free Press is another Gannett owned rag that leans so far to the left that it´s a wonder it hasn´t toppled over!! It´s like the printed version of PMSNBC. Even the weather report is biased. We canceled our subscription years ago and rarely pick up the Sunday paper for the ads.

Hold on there, cowboy!Texas Monthly magazine sued the New York Times on Friday for poaching its editor. Jake Silverstein, who was hired away from the Emmis Communications title last month to become the new editor of the New York Times Magazine, was under contract at the regional monthly until the Times, “without legal justification or excuse,” caused him to breach that deal, the lawsuit claims. The six-page Texas state court action alleges that Times Executive Editor Jill Abramson started recruiting Silverstein in December 2012 — a full year before then-magazine editor Hugo Lindgren was ousted.

New York - President Barack Obama is coming to New York City Friday to address the Rev. Al Sharpton‘s National Action Network.The visit comes days after revelations surfaced that Sharpton worked with the FBI. The topic also came up in a 2011 ’60 Minutes’ interview with Lesley Stahl weeks before the debut of “Politics Nation.”In outtakes posted from that interview, Stahl asked Sharpton if he was an FBI informant. The exchange got testy at times when Stahl continued to question Rev.

First came the “polar vortex” — now it’s the “pollen vortex.”Forced to lie dormant by the long, brutal winter, trees are now set to start reproducing like crazy — and create a massive amount of pollen that could wallop your sinuses this weekend. Pollen count in the Northeast will soar to “high levels” Saturday and Sunday, when warm temperatures will prompt plants to create the sniffle-inducing substance, reports Pollen.com, which offers allergy “forecasts.” In New York City, where the temps could hit 70 degrees Saturday, allergy symptoms will “become more severe,” the site says. April is generally the worst month of allergy season,

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev. Al Sharpton and accused Republicans of trying to keep millions of Americans from voting, in a fiery speech days after new revelations about Sharpton’s past as an FBI informant. “The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago,” Obama told the annual convention of Sharpton’s National Action Network in Manhattan. Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

Two years before the Boston Marathon bombing, the Russian government concealed key information on one of the killers that might have thwarted the attack, a new report charges.Kremlin officials intercepted a phone conversation in which Tamerlan Tsarnaev discussed Islamic jihad with his mother, but they withheld the information from the FBI, according to the U.S. inspector general report that comes as the one-year anniversary of the bombing approaches. Had the FBI been privy to the red-flag phone call, it would have prompted the bureau to take an extensive look at Tsarnaev, according to The New York Times. “Had they known what the

President Barack Obama is planning to sign two new executive actions aimed at narrowing the wage gap between men and women Tuesday, even as the Obama White House pays its female staffers less than men.The first executive action will be an order banning federal contractors from retaliation against employees who disclose or ask about their wages, according to reports. His other executive action will require federal contractors to submit data to the government about their employees compensation by sex and race.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively
