They probably will not, the repugnant party has learned that when they stamp their feet throw a tantrum and cry about “media bias” the media will let them get away with almost any lie. Did you know for example that there is a scientific controversy over whether the world is 4.5 billion years old or if it is only 6000 years old?

@1 And we're doing our part. Now it's time for the rest of the local media to chip in and correct the misimpression that they gave.

The establishment media is owned by a handful of insanely wealthy individuals and corporations, and their job is to repeat RepubliKKKan lies and right-wing propaganda, while simultaneouly keeping the general population afraid and misinformed. They have no other function.

Shifting money around doesn't always mean net neutral.

While his claim is untrue on the original merits, it could render a net positive or negative based on how spending is controlled. So, in Seattle, does state or local have more oversight?

Do we have past reports showing which side has a higher % of frivolous spending?

Don't hold your breath for other media outlets to set the record straight!

Goldy, why don't you get that really smart and not-at-all-crazy "businessman" Donald Trump to make a million dollar bet? Any newspaper that covers Rob McKenna's lies on property tax swap and funding education gets $250 grand. Any newspaper that ALSO covers Sam Reed's election fail, voter suppression, and campaign violations on behalf of his Republican stooge Kim Wyman gets $500 grand. And any newspaper that ALSO covers all of Reagan Dunn's missed votes in King County gets the triple crown prize of a million dollars!
