- The Washington Times - Wednesday, November 19, 2008

ANALYSIS/OPINION:

The Washington Times is an institution of American greatness at both the local and national level. Surrounded by the majority of leftist newspapers, conservatives in the Washington area fortunately have The Times.

A healthy alternative to the foul and bitter-tasting Washington Post, The Times provides factual sustenance on current events, unflavored by The Post’s usual leftist tendencies and blatant agendas.

While The Post reeks of grievance and entitlement in its pages, a reasonable and informed fragrance wafts from editions of The Times. The Post’s obvious and boorish cheerleading in 2006 in support of James Webb’s Senate run against George Allen was just one of many examples of its lack of objectivity.

Having enjoyed The Washington Times over the past 20 years, I have noticed vast improvements in its sports pages, particularly the Redskins coverage. Inexplicably, some who shun The Post’s overt leftist pandering have nevertheless given it their patronage because of a perception of superior sports coverage in The Post.

Within the past 10 years, I have noticed that The Times’ sports pages are a cut above those of The Post. The benefit of choosing The Times versus The Post is that one can enjoy great sports coverage without contributing to the left’s propaganda machine.

I feel obligated to disclose that in my household, we do receive the weekend edition of The Post. This is because my wife uses the weekend edition’s coupons to save money when she goes grocery shopping. I cannot argue with this financial incentive, being a committed capitalist. To balance the scales of my conscience, I use the Sunday edition as a dropcloth when cleaning my guns.
