  •  Interesting Texas DA race & media influence (0+ / 0-)

    Hidalgo County DA Democratic primary pits 32-year incumbent versus a county judge.

    On Saturday, obviously conscious of the election in a few days, CBS' 48Hours ran a piece on a 50 year old murder that essentially made the incumbent look like a toady for the Catholic Church, and much worse.  (Long story, young woman almost certainly murdered by a priest who assaulted another woman three weeks earlier, church covers it up, priest confesses crime to a couple people, now ex-priest is 80 years old, but DA won't prosecute... apparently afraid he'll lose the case or something.)

    Dislodging a 32 year incumbent, who still looks reasonably youngish, is never easy, but it's kinda strange that a TV network would so plainly look to influence the outcome.

    All the problems we face in the United States today can be traced to an unenlightened immigration policy on the part of the American Indian. -- Pat Paulsen
