The good news keeps on coming. Just another proof that liberals just can't run things.

The Tampa Bay Times, formerly the St. Petersburg Times aka Pravda West.

It threw itself under the Obama bus.

St. Petersburg, err, Tampa Bay Times, Pravda Florida keeps falling. Unfortunately, our local rag, the Lakeland Ledger, has picked up many columnists columns from the TB Times. If it weren’t for the local section of the Ledger, I’d cancel in a heartbeat. (They, the Ledger, charge to read on-line if you’re not a subscriber)

I’m hoping their first cost cutting measure will be to dump their entire editorial page staff. Then we can stop reading about how George Bush, Rick Scott and David Jolly- bad and Barack Obama and Alex Sink- good.

Fun flashback: Tampa Bay Times endorses Obama

TBT: Obama for President

excerpt:

By many measures, the economy is improving steadily even if growth remains painfully slow. There have been 31 straight months of job growth, and more than 5 million private sector jobs have been created. The unemployment rate is down to 7.8 percent — not great, but the same as when Obama took office. The stock market has come back, new housing starts are the highest in four years and housing prices in Tampa Bay and other areas are rising. The financial industry is stable, interest rates remain low and corporate profits are healthy. There is still too much economic pain, but America is better off than most of the rest of the industrialized world.

Da! Is good!

The smart ones will take the buyouts before TBT runs out of money.

Why? According to Obama and the Democrats, the economy is booming. Their circulation should be going through the sky. They should be hiring. Again, why?

“This comes as the St. Petersburg-based newspaper faces increasing financial strain and works with business consultants to “improve the company’s financial results.”

I’m still waiting for the politicians to start rebuking businesses who say this with the “Business is meant for public service, not private profit”>

The Tampa Bay Times (formerly St Petersberg Times) is rabidly lib. If the main news story of the day is complimentary to conservatives, they totally abandon the idea of running any news headline at all and use an op-ed or poll as the headline.

Their most loved agenda item is how nobody in FL pays enough taxes.

I won’t even buy them for the coupons, so I am proud to say I am part of their problem.
