The LA Times agrees, Anna Eshoo is embracing protectionist policies detremental to the best intrests of her constituents. And it's ignored by her hometown paper.

hmmm ... bob, it seems you've subscribed to the Daily News school of writing headlines. I'd hardly call that times article a "slam" against Eshoo (I detected disappointment).

And ... I believe the Daily has carried stories about Eshoo/CAFTA. Look a little closer.

You're right, how could I have mistaken the following for a slam instead of disappointment?

"And it's shameful for California, one of the world's most dynamic economies, that not a single one of its 32 Democratic representatives in the House voted for CAFTA...How could Howard Berman of West Hollywood and Anna Eshoo of Silicon Valley embrace such an isolationist economic worldview?"

if it's a slam, it's the entire 32, bob. the emphasis wasn't on Eshoo alone.

still wouldn't call it a slam, though.

The LA Times specifically mentions Congresswoman Eshoo and you choose to join the Daily News in looking the other way.

how is it "looking away"? ... you guys and your unforgiveably ignorant conspiracy theories.

give me proof that these issues are being ignored and then explain the benefit to the paper and the journalists. it's so easy to lob trendy media-hating hand gernades.

back it up.

Other than the Daily News, I didn't bash the media. In fact, I offered the LA Times editorial to support the accusation. You say the Palo Alto Daily News has reported the controversial vote by congresswoman Eshoo. Tell me when this happened? I must have the invisible ink edition.

My last hope for representation died when Shirley Black lost to Red Pete. The Bay Area beauties came to office as opponents of the military and advocates of Better Red Than Dead. Ladies, thanks for nothing.
