Pick one: Corporate Greed, Unholy Special
Interest Influence or Corrupt Politics?
Our Founding Fathers established Freedom of the Press under the
theory that a free and independent press was a key to keeping the
citizens informed. But has this founding principle become just
another casualty in the continuing loss of our founding principles?
The current governor's race in Georgia may shed some insight. In
fact more specifically the Republican Primary for the Republican
nomination for governor.
Strangely the Atlanta Journal Constitution also has a list of
candidates for governor on their web site at:
� Democrat: Cathy
Libertarian: Garrett Michael Hayes
Independent: John Dashler
Strange that both the Republican Party of Georgia web site and
the Atlanta Journal Constitution web site are both failing to
disclose a full list of candidates that will be on the July 18
Candidate: Sonny Perdue
Address: P.O. Box 12369
Atlanta, GA 30355
Phone: (770) 220-0210
Who would have thought that the the Georgia Republican Party
and the Atlanta Journal Constitution would both concurrently distort
something as fundamental as a list of qualified candidates?
Today, the picture cleared up a bit. On the front page of the
AJC web site there is an interesting new feature. An interesting
link is shown:
And when you click on the link:
This is obviously a paid service, which is fine.
But has this transfer of money distorted the AJC "news coverage?"
Has the AJC allowed the transfer of political campaign funds, mostly
derived from Sonny's wide spread support from special interests (AJC
is a member of the Metro Atlanta Chamber) to join in an effort to
remove a candidate from a list of qualified candidates?
The citizens of Georgia are rapidly losing our
State government to the unholy influence of special interests. Even
such a fundamental and basic principle as listing of qualified
candidates is being abused by the Georgia Republican Party and the
Atlanta Journal Constitution.
The AJC is just one of the special interests that
comprise both the liberal media and the Metro Atlanta Chamber. Such
behavior is almost expected from such a paper.
Republicans in Georgia need to decide if this is
what their Party stands for?
Has the leadership of the Republican Party of
Georgia stooped to the level of open and well known bias as the
Atlanta Journal Constitution? Your silence only condones the
deliberate mis-representation to not only your own party members,
but to the citizens of Georgia.
Perhaps the leadership of the Republican Party
and the Atlanta Journal Constitution are leaving his name off the
list because he is not embedded with special interests.
