You can draw your own conclusions but the Arizona Daily Star used noticeably different adjectives in describing two fringe perennial candidates for political office upon the passing of each, as seen below. Both news articles were published in the Star’s proclaimed Era of Civility. The two fringe candidates were on opposite ends of the spectrum. [...]
Lee Enterprises, owner of the Arizona Daily Star, announced on Friday that it is preparing to file for bankruptcy protection. Read the news coverage here and at this link.
The Daily Star took issue with something that Bruce Ash said. That is no surprise. In fact, it is expected. Even if they have to engage in hypocrisy to do it. In a recent message he stated that Republican voters in Tucson are disenfranchised. The Daily Star took issue with images from the Jim Crow [...]
The Daily Star today said that comparing anything in local politics to the Middle East was “trivializing the blood spilled in Middle East conflicts.” So, Arizona Daily Star, you ran this cartoon in the same paper today.

Update: We actually found someone named John Glassman, here is video of the real John Glassman telling a joke. How the Arizona Republic confused these two is beyond us. But this John Glassman also has a [...]
Listening to Jon Justice this morning I heard him read an email from a listener relaying a story about the Elton John concert. During the concert, Sir Elton didn’t mince words about those demanding that he boycott Arizona and cancel his concert as a protest of SB 1070. We won’t repeat his exact words but [...]
From the “way to funny to pass up” file, this graphic aired on the 9:00 news here in Tucson on Fox Channel 11. This pretty much speaks for itself. It’s a crisis, the President addresses an anxious nation, and he has to share the bill with a ten year old Simpsons rerun. The bloom is off the rose.
The Tucson Weekly ran a post on their blog citing a New York Times article excerpt about a working mother in Tucson who lost her state subsidized day care benefit because she missed a deadline and is now on a waiting list for resumption of that benefit. The Weekly author, Jim Nintzel, used this to take a shot at [...]
