An example in today's Tribune-Review is especially strange:
"It will be difficult to get Democrat votes if we do not do (legislation) in a comprehensive manner," said Rep. Michael Hanna, a Democrat from Clinton County.By publishing this quotation, the Tribune-Review signals that one of these points is accurate:
- Democratic elected official Michael Hanna was quoted properly, and has joined the right-wing fringe's adjectival assault on standard English and the Democratic Party
- By-lined reporter Timothy Puko miquoted Hanna, perhaps by sacrificing his integrity at the altar of a Scaife-signed paycheck
- One of the Tribune-Review's editors, perhaps bucking for a certificate for a free weekend at
Doug's Motelthe luxurious and renamed Huntingdon Inn Motel, revised Puko's account to enforce Scaife-flattering or -mandated dogma.
