Skip to comments.Wife of publisher won't retract story on Democrat donor who she claims is a “staunch Republican”

I posted this a couple of days ago. Jennifer Hunter of the Sun Times wrote an article claiming a staunch Republican was switching to the Democrats. The only problem- the staunch Republican is a big time personal injury attorney who donated thousands to Dem candidates and a mere pittance to Republicans. I emailed Ms. Hunter (admittedly a snotty missive) and she didnt respond. Ive read several blogs where people have claimed to email her but only one actually said she responded. Ms. Hunter is the wife of the Sun Times publisher (John Cruikshank). I have no idea how things work at that paper, but, perhaps, if youre married to the boss, you dont have to follow the rules of journalism. We can sit back and watch as the likes of Ms. Hunter write phony articles about non-existent staunch Republicans switching allegiance to the Democrats. Or we can demand an answer. Amazingly, the Sun Times recently featured a front page expose about how Chicago cops are hiding info about policemen who have ten or more civilian complaints against them . The headline reads- What are they hiding Well, Id like to know what Mr Cruikshank and Ms. Hunter are hiding. Lets find out. email@example.com
Keep on their lying liberal butts. This is straight out of their rodent playbooks. How many times do you hear DU’ers call into C-Span or other shows claiming to be “Former Lifelong Republicans” who never supported the GOP in their lives ?
You have to email her and demand an answer to stop her.
This is the newspaper that directed it’s editorial page to go ‘more left’. How more left could they go?? Then they retracted the directive.
Email her and demand an answer
Bump for later action.
So many have deserted the irrational idiocy that the DNC panders to that they had to invent an entire new political label for them.
You may be better off writing a letter to the editor.
Rush mentioned it today.
This story has legs.
The media no longer even goes through the motions of objectivity. “Journalism” is a sick joke. Lie as often as these people do and you loose your soul. You loose the ability to even recognize truth.
We need to call these people on the BS every single day.
Heh. They don’t have one. The Sun Times just got rid of Lord Conrad Black and his wife and they replaced them with Cruikshank and his Canadian journalist wife. They don’t need an Ombudsman because they don’t give a damn.
Done did prior to posting. DNC “Proudly serving the needs of America’s enemies.”
Rush mentioned it? Really?
Yes. In the first hour.
Said the guy had given Dems thousands and Repubs about 600 dollars.
There was a guy in 2000 from some kind of tech firm. A millionaire. On his site he openly boasted that he never agreed with a candidate as much as he agreed with Al Gore. And when the election was dragged out, he threw financial support to Gore’s recount activity and openly boasted to the press that he was a “Republican” who felt that Al Gore Junior was being cheated.
It is not unheard of for Democrats to vote in the Republican primary to dilute the party’s nominations. Probably was trying to get McCain nominated but wouldn’t vote for him in the general election.
This RINO I’m talking about even registered at FR under his name and posted a number of responses defending Gore.
