Check out this lede in an article about Trent Franks.
From the mouth of the very same Arizona congressman who warned Arizona residents about the looming threat of an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attack, Rep. Trent Franks, R-Ariz., has issued a new warning: ISIS is in Ciudad Juarez, or has been there in the last few weeks.
That sentence is clearly designed to mock Congressman Franks, but Franks' reference to a possible EMP attack was based on an Op Ed piece in the Wall Street Journal and since Franks' role in Congress gives him access to private security briefings, why should we assume that Az Central "Digital Reporter" Ryan Van Velzer is more credible than Franks?
It seems like Velzer's bias goes a lot deeper than concerns over Franks' comments. Check out how Velzer describes Judicial Watch.
"a far-right legal group known as Judicial Watch"
Seriously? Would the Republic tolerate a reporter saying "a far-left think tank known as the Brookings Institute? Of course not.
If you want to know why circulation and credibility are collapsing, don't look to Craig's List and Twitter. Look a the collected works of "Ryan Van Velzer."
