A Tale of Two Stories - Part I

Daily Times Shows Bias For Ireton Yet Again

Once again, the Daily Times shows its true colors.  In Sunday's DT, two stories (see Albero HERE, see Ireton HERE) show the tone we can expect from this year's Salisbury city elections.  On one hand we have the implication that candidate (and SBYNews publisher) Joe Albero is a racist.  On the other we see Ireton's erratic, grandstanding behavior explained away as being in the best interest of Salisbury.


Is Joe Albero a Racist?

The bottom line - NO!

Sunday's article on Albero was based on posts cherry-picked from Salisbury News (often out of context) and put up on a web site admittedly owned by Salisbury mayor Jim Ireton.  When asked about the site Albero commented:
It's sad.  Salisbury has so many problems.  What is our mayor doing?  He's playing petty politics rather than trying to make Salisbury a better place to live and work in.  This is the second time that the Daily Times has been directly involved in a spoof involving Jim Ireton.  First there was the "phone spoof", which resulted in the firing of two Daily Times employees.  Now we have the "web site spoof".
I have faith in the citizens of Salisbury.  If they bother to look at these things objectively they will quickly realize that this is smoke and mirrors on the part of Jimmy and his pals at the DT.  I'm just sorry that a decent reporter like Jeremy Cox has been drawn into it.  Unfortunately for the people of Salisbury, when you're Jim Ireton and you don't have a record to run on, this is what you do.... you crawl into the gutter.
We acknowledge that the DT will only provide reporter Jeremy Cox with a certain number of column inches; however, if Cox had been able to print more of the research that (we know) he gathered, the implication would be even more laughable.  Last week Cox requested an interview with Albero regarding this article.  In his request, Cox cited three posts on Salisbury News that he wanted to specifically discuss:



As Cox acknowleges, most of the content posted on Salisbury News is excerpted from other sources.  This article, including its title, is no exception.  We recommend that you read the entire article in its original form.

Let's start with its author, Pastor Ben Kinchlow.  Cox's piece portrays him as "an African-American columnist and former co-host of the Christian Broadcasting Network’s “The 700 Club.”  That's accurate ... as far as it goes.  Pastor Kinchlow has also hosted shows on TBN (the Trinity Broadcasting Network), is a well known author, successful businessman, and well regarded by tens of millions of evangelical Christians in this country and probably hundreds of millions around the world.  Oh yes, he also happens to be African-American.

If you read the entire article, you will see that it poses some rather simple questions:  given that African-Amerians are among the most faithful of our citizens, and given Biblical teaching on certain moral issues, and given the Democrat party's stance on these issues ...
"In light of all the above statistics and more, we are forced to address these two questions: 1) Why the dichotomy of supporting, almost blindly, a party that stands in direct contradiction to what they hold as moral truth? And 2) since blacks are demonstrably the most religious of all voters, are they hypocrites or are they stupid?"
The questions are simple.  Maybe the answers are a little more complicated.  However, the questions certainly aren't racist.  I'm surprised that Albero and Kinchlow aren't also being accused of being homophobes (a term I personally dislike because of its inaccuracy, but I'll stick to conventional usage).




While Cox wanted to discuss this article with Albero, no specific mention is made of it in his article.  Instead, we read a non-specific reference to "Daily Times analysis found a half-dozen posts in 2012 alone that included the term 'black mobs' in the headline or body."  Small wonder.  I doubt that Cox's editors would publish an article that  included mention of a second post like the one above.

"A Censored Race War", the article in question, was excerpted from National Review Online and was originally published as one of the author's syndicated newspaper columns.  Again, we recommend that you read the ENTIRE article as originally published.

This piece was authored by Dr. Thomas Sowell.  Dr. Sowell is a respected economist, the author of over 30 books, a syndicated columnist, and a renowned social and political philospher.  Oh yea, like Pastor Kinchlow, Dr. Sowell is also African-American.

I can understand why the editors of the Daily Times wouldn't want specific mention of Sowell in this context.  Born in the segregated South and raised in North Carolina and Harlem, Sowell dropped out of high school and served his country as a Marine in the Korean War.  After his service, Sowell went on to earn degrees from Harvard, Columbia, and the University of Chicago.  He has served on the faculties of Cornell and UCLA and currently serves as a Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution at Stanford University.  Perhaps this is why specific mention of this piece is dropped and instead allusion is made to "Daily Times analysis"?


The third piece which Cox specifically asked about was Albero's "pre-announcement".  That's pretty innocuous.  However, Cox was concerned about some comments which appeared on that post.  They're valid questions.  Some commenter did make a reference to "black and stupid voters".  I will admit that I probably would not have approved such a comment myself.  However, you need to take a few things into account:  first, Albero doesn't moderate all of the comments; second, Albero doesn't like censoring comments unless the commenter uses foul language or is overtly racist; and third, if you read the entire thread of comments it's pretty clear that the commenter is not calling African-Americans stupid.  He (or she?) is saying that the people who voted for President Obama were African-American or stupid.  Given the overwhelming share of the African-American vote which Obama (and most Democrat candidates) received it's tough to argue that side of the statement.  While I personally know quite a few people of above average intelligence who voted for the President, and aren't black, it's easy to be flippant about their intelligence given my (and many other conservative's) views on President Obama's policies.  (and NO, that comment wasn't mine).  But again, Albero shouldn't be responsible for every view proffered by his readers and should be commend for taking a liberal view on censorship.

A Diversity of Views

It should also be noted that, in addition to original material, Albero posts from a diversity of sources.  As conservative as World Net Daily might be, it is balanced out by posts from left of center sites such as MSNBC and ProPublica.  As Cox notes in his article, Albero runs every press release submitted to him from Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley (hardly a promoter of conservative ideas, values, or policies).

The thing I find most interesting about this article, though, are the quotes from area residents.  Who is calling Albero a racist?  Ireton and councilwoman Shanie Shields.  Readers should remember that Ireton has a history of playing the race card.  He has accused council members of being racist because they disagreed with him on a policy matter (The Bricks).  Shields concurred with Ireton at that time and threatened to "take it to the streets" if necessary.  Since Albero has announced his candidacy, Ireton has been calling Albero a racist to anyone that will listen.  As for Shields, she should be equally ashamed:
Asked whether she agreed that Albero “sees color,” as Ireton charged, Shanie Shields, the City Council’s lone African-American representative, replied, “Of course. Read his stuff and you can pass good judgment on what he reports on.”
She hasn’t read it herself, she admitted, since Albero posted pictures of her former home in 2008 after she lost it to foreclosure.
How can you argue that Ireton is right when you admit that you haven't read anything on Salisbury News for almost five years?

NAACP President Mary Ashanti refused to "pass judgment" without context and a thorough examination of the facts.  Ms. Ashanti and the NAACP should be commended for taking a reasoned and responsible stance.  They may come back and decide that Albero is wrong.  I'll disagree with them then.  However, I will still respect the fact that they took a reasoned approach to responding to these charges rather than going off half-cocked like Shields.  There's nothing half-cocked about Ireton, this is a calculated move to sow the seeds of racial division in order to survive an election.

I also found great irony surprise that an African-American citizen was brave enough to go on the record in support of Albero, despite the fact that people like Ireton and his supporters will probably attack the man now that his name has been published in the newspaper.  Mr. Neal should be commended for his courage.

Fair and Balanced?

Overall, Cox wrote an accurate piece.  I will not say that it is fair, but it is accurate.  You can even call it "balanced" in a twisted way.  What's the difference?  Look at Cox's mention of "hate crime" statistics.  Rarely is black-on-white crime classified as a "hate crime".  In addition, there was no mention in Sowell's article of hate crimePMs.  Instead the focus was on the media's (and liberal establishment's) reluctance to openly discuss black-on-white crime because it offended their skewed world view and political agenda.  Cox doesn't cite other specific articles, so I can't comment on the result of the DT's "analysis".

I'm quite sure that Ireton's supporters will disparage Cox for being accurate rather than simply re-printing, 100%, the spoon-fed meme Ireton tried to sell him.  Some of Albero's supporters won't be happy with the article because of its tone and implications.  Maybe that was the "balance" Cox was striving for.    Perhaps I would be a little more placated if Cox's article on Ireton was as equally "balanced".

More on that in Part II, tomorrow

Great article G.A. I'm not a racist. There is a very valid point you brought up that I never could understand. White-on-black is considered by the MSM as a hate crime, where black-on-white is not. A crime is a crime black or white, blue or red, pink or brown.

Anonymous said...

Why did they only go to Shanie to ask questions. Shouldn't they have gotten the opinion of the other council members as well? Isn't that being racist if they only ask certain people? Doesn't everyone matter or does the DT think only certain people matter. Why did the DT writer feel that saying "black mob" was so bad since it mentions color yet at the end of the article he finds the need to reveal the color of a fan of Joe's. Seems like the DT is the one that only sees color.

When reading the article about Ireton I have to wonder. What is he afraid his department heads will reveal? What is he trying to hide by only releasing what he wants and why in the world is he using Joe's name for a website.

Jim Ireton has obviously been stalking Joe Albero and his website. That fist picture posted with Joe and his wife separated by a fence was taken by a good friend of the green blogger. The same one that used a Salisbury Fire Department email address along with the then acting chief and volunteer deputy chief to send numerous slurs and anti-gay hate mail about Jim Ireton. How ironic is that! And now Jim Ireton has been fighting the current city council over that position. Shows a sign of weakness and poor leadership on the part of the current mayor.

BKLN you are correct in saying that Ireton is a control freak. That was obvious with the piece that stated the DT contacted an employee and the employee was afraid to comment without Ireton's approval. It then said that employee called Ireton right away to tell him about the call. Ireton immediately texted a nastygram to the DT. That is blatant CONTROL!!

To be fair to Mr. Cox, I know he did contact other members of council (I don't know if he contacted all five members). The other council members evidently did not think this was worthy of comment and I applaud them for that.

This is the most bias reporting I have seen.I do not live in the city limits of Salisbury but
follow this election with great interest.

Reporting of this nature leads me to believe I cant trust anything I read in this liberal based publication.

I have talked with Mr. Albero and he has great ideas as how to make the city the envy of the Eastern Shore.

I have been on the fence for some time about my subscription to The
Daily Times. This article has made up my mind that cancelation will be forthcoming.

What does "sees color" mean, anyway? When Ireton proposes subsidized housing downtown, accepts grants for programs and services that support only minorities and calls others racists, is he "seeing color?"

Just remember. This is not Joe's election to lose, it is our election to win! Jim was a guest speaker at a function that I went to. I was also with a new employee who had just relocated here from Baltimore. She listened to his speach and asked me, What does that have to do with why we are here? He never talked about why he was invited, he was just patting himself on the back. I had to explain to her that he was our mayor and does not understand how to do his job. She has now lived here for 8 months and told me, I know what you mean. It took 8 months for her to figure it out but some still don't get it.

What I find most interesting is the Daily Times has a half-page ad promoting " The Investigator", Jeremy Cox! He says: No one in the Delmarva area brings as much investigative background to the table as I do."

All I saw in the paper today was BS. Not just about Joe, but Jim, too. I want to know about issues which affect me in the city.

This little boy, Jeremy Cox, needs to go back to where he came from.

To be fair bout the bracist issue , I must tell you that when a statement is made without argument , the statement wins most of the time. It is accepted as the truth.
However if the NAACP wants Ireton for a leader , they are very confused.
Just for the reason of being gay is enough to be biased.
How on earth can you explain that a gay person( (1000th) of the population )can make good unbiased decisions that affect all people.
It's time for change in this city , if you want to play politics , then don't vote gay.
If you want something better , then don't vote gay.
If you want more jobs , then don't vote gay.
How do you like it now?

This is the strategy the liberal left nearly always uses when it does not have a legitimate platform to run on.

They try and demonize and ostracize the opposition because they have no record to brag about. I knew when I published the endorsement of Joe Albero for Mayor that they - (The liberal left) - would launch a counterattack. It took them less than 24 hours.

Folks - this election is about a vision - a new direction. The current Mayoral administration has shown to be incompetent to run this city. The have no record or platform to run on. The facts speak for themselves.

I encourage all Salisbury voters to closely examine the record - (high unemployment, factory closings, high poverty rate, environment, moral bankruptcy) - and then make the choice. In the end I believe you'll find that Albero is the best candidate to be Salisbury's next Mayor.

From the tone of The Daily Times article concerning Ireton's iron fist rule - it sounds as though it were Adolph Hitler ruling the roost.

Censoring departmental heads by filtering out their information. Ireton has the audacity to intercept departmental communiques. Certainly sounds like censorship to me.

Ireton is no more than an extension of Barrie Tighlman and her stooges.

I voted for Ireton knowing he was gay and didn't care. I don't think what 1:24 is correct, that is just more hate. Ireton's own actions caused the loss of my support, not his sexual preference.

We can't paint all gays with a broad brush and think they all are alike. The same with race.

We'll never get it right, until we all get it together, straight, gay, white, black, asian, hispanic, men and women.

I really don't care for the racists comments myself, however, it does go to show, if nothing else, that hate is alive and well, not just here on this blog, but society as a whole. I do not consider this blog a hate blog, but the comments leave to doubt about the authors of those comments.

We have a long way to go as the human race.

National campaigns have fired people for doing the sleazeball thing he has done with the website using Albero's name.

Ireton is not fit to represent Salisbury any more, if he was to begin with. What a sorry state of affairs for a once appealing city. Ireton just finished off any hope of recovering its reputation.

Ireton has to draw from the 'race card' when you examine his track record. He cannot argue the facts - so he has no alternative except to try and defame Joe - hoping to spark a public outcry. IMHO I don't think people are going to 'bite-in' on Ireton's underhanded tactics. When one reads the fine print in the DT article - Ireton is definately a control freak.

Anonymous said...

I read both articles and here's my thoughts.

I thought the article on Joe started out rough. However, as it continued it became clear and obvious that the paper started to support you.

On the other hand, looking at Ireton's article, I thought comparing him to Julianni was plain stupid. They tried to start the article in a nice way but as it went on it proved to me that Jim Ireton is a control freak. He's immature and quite frankly paranoid. I do not want a childish and paranoid mayor so I will not vote for Ireton again.

I think the whole website thing is just ridiculous as well. Shanie Shields should be ashamed of herself. How can someone make the comment she did when she admits she doesn't even read your site. Did she think it wasn't important for taxpayers to know she foreclosed on her home. Times have really changed and voters are becoming stupid people. Sorry Joe, I just had to throw that in there.

Anonymous said...

I don't think Jim understands that invoking the race card could come back to bite him. When black leaders look at the evidence here they'll know that Ireton is using them and a serious issue in a crass political calculation. He is attempting to use racial tension, not solve the issue or even make it better.

Reference to 6:37 Posting

You are correct - they have been filtering information for years. I remember writing several editorial letters to them only to have some of my thoughts re-written by their editorial staff. When you connect the dots you'll find that they are affiliated with some special interest group thus trying to promote an agenda.

Then - along comes SBYnews and starts reporting - FAIR AND BALANCED - and the next thing you know they (DT) starts attacking its commentators, reporters and even the SBY media itself. It really is a battle of the titans -(SBYnews verses DT). In my estimation the days of trying to write history as opposed to reporting it are over for them (DT).

Mr. Albero, Did you give someone permission to use your name of that website? Because if you didn't they are using it to avoid identification when they put up information to discredit you,

(c) Prohibited -- Assuming identity of another. -- A person may not knowingly and willfully assume the identity of another, including a fictitious person:

Is this the type of thing Jim Ireton associates himself with?

Why doesn't the daily times ask Jim Ireton about him exposing his self in front of them two women at Mojo's?

I didn't like Louise Smith, but Ireton cut her off from the department heads doing her PAC14 show for information. Ireton has treated Campbell and Cohen even worse. As long as he had former DT reporter Sarah Lake drooling on his every word, he was the star of the show. It's all he's ever cared about.

That's a good point. I read the other day where the editorial, J. Cox, demands to tell them why Hoppes isn't their choice. First of all Jeremy the Council majority has shown leadership in their decision to appoint the next fire chief. They have been gracious to extend the acting status to give the mayor time to find and submit another name for the position. It is obvious the mayor hasn't shown leadership trying to force a department head on them when they have already rejected him. They are being bullied by the mayor. That's right a male mayor is bullying 2 females on the city council now why don't you put that in your "racist" story about the mayor bullying females on the city council because they won't rubberstamp policy. These actions by the mayor is abuse of power and it is a disgrace to the citizens of Salisbury. He bullies those two council members like he bullied his way into the ladies room of Mojo's restaurant. He knows he can bully those 3 female employees at Mojo's because they fear for their job. It's time for Jim Ireton to resign.

Snip-it from the DT Editorial on 2/5/13

"Instead of hiding behind “personnel matters,” tell us why this man who has capably managed the department for the better part of the past four years on an interim basis cannot be the department’s official 22nd chief.

But first, show some leadership and make a decision."

That last sentence is a joke. They made their decision. Sounds like leadership to me.

Why would employees of Mojo's lose their jobs for reporting illegal conduct? Surely the owners of Mojo's do not blame the victims. If stories circulating are even partially true, the employees did nothing wrong. Firing them would open the business up to federal penalties related to civil rights violations. I'm sure the owners would not do such a thing.
