Skip to comments.Our View: Another “Unbiased Journalist” Joins Hick Public Relations Team ( Colorado )
Posted on 08/02/2013 10:05:20 AM PDT by george76
Fortunately (and unfortunately), Democrat elected officials in Colorado arent even trying to hide their incestuous relationship with the ahem unbiased media anymore.
In an un-surprising twist of staffing fate, Governor John Hickenlooper announced this week that yet another unbiased member of the Denver journalism cabal is joining his staff and for a basement bargain annual salary of just $130,000.
Thats right. Mr. Maximillian Potter will join Hickenloopers staff as a Senior Media Advisor after parting ways with 5280: Denvers Magazine last month.
Presumably, Potter got a chance to know Hickenlooper when researching a glowing profile piece he did on the bumbling governor titled: The Happy Shrewdness of John Hickenlooper last year. Move over Woodward and Bernstein.
In isolation, this hiring would not raise any eyebrows. However, the case of Mr. Potter is yet another example in a long list of Colorado Democrats hiring members of the media to work in their offices after providing them glowing coverage in print. Names like Evan Dryer, Curtis Hubbard and others come to mind.
While all of the aforementioned journalists revealed themselves to be liberal hacks in recent years, can anyone think of an example of a member of the unbiased media establishment abandoning their post to take a job with a Republican recently? We cant either.

Once the DNC took total control of the “media”, it became a totally useless source of information for the American public. Right now, “the media” is nothing but a DNC propaganda tool. It is also the reason why we have so many low information, totally ignorant voters in this country these days.
I assume that “joining his staff” means “will draw his pay from the public treasury.”
