St. Louis Post-Dispatch Puts Words in Ed Martin’s Mouth

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch editorial board puts words into Ed Martin’s mouth:

“See brown people. Round up brown people. Ed Martin. Tough on crime.” That’s quite a slogan.

Next, of course, we’ll see those words scroll across the screen in one of Chris Koster’s ads or one of the other entities out there putting out anti-Martin ads in advance of the election.

Paper prints crap, advertisements use crap as evidence that a legitimate news source agrees with advertiser, and hopefully, viewers will ignore the context.

I miss the days when St. Louis had two dailies. The Globe-Democrat, the Sun, whatever.
