Going along with my previous observations about WMUR – a tilt?

On yesterday’s WMUR News9 at 5pm, they ran a piece on the new legislators, newly elected on November 6th, as they were going through their 3 day State House orientation:

Like the political junkie I am, I watched it…and went “wait…what?”  Diversity? Methinks WMUR’s Adam Sexton went tilt on “diversity”.

I went back and watched it again.  And a third time and this time with my virtual stopwatch:

  • Israel Peidra (D) 14 seconds
  • Gerri Cannon (D) 14 seconds
  • Dennis Acton (R) 19 seconds
  • Nancy Murphy (D) 15 seconds

3 to 1? 19 out of 62 seconds? Look, it was just a short 2:24 long piece so some might say “Skip, c’mon – it’s only a few seconds!”.  Sure, but it does seem to be, anecdotally, a further indication when I think back over the recent history.  Yes, more Ds got elected than Rs, but not by a 75% to 25% percentage, right?

Co-founder of GraniteGrok, my concern is around Individual Liberty and Freedom (and how Government is taking that away from us). My fight, from a Conservative (with small “L” libertarian leanings) and evangelical Christian perspective, is with the Progressives that are forcing a collectivized and secular humanistic future upon us. As TEA Party activist, citizen journalist (and pundit!), my goal is to use the New Media to advance the radical notions of America’s Founders back into our culture again.
