The Baltimore Sun Editorial Board: Compare and Contrast
Want to see the political bias of the Baltimore Sun Editorial Board at work? I present you with this:
In powerful testimony, 16-year-old activist Greta Thunberg warned adults gathered at the United Nations this week that bold action is essential to stave off the existential threats posed by climate change. “The eyes of all future generations are upon you,” she inveighed the grownups of the world. “If you choose to fail us, I say we will never forgive you.”
While some adults dismiss the pleadings of this teenage girl as hysterical — just as they criticized the Parkland student activists who demanded stronger firearms regulations after the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida — many others are listening and nodding agreement. She inspired last week’s student protests of government and corporate inaction, and former President Barack Obama fist-bumped her and called her “one of our planet’s greatest advocates.”

Now, I present you with this:
We, like everyone else, have only the videos to go on in determining what went down on the National Mall last week when Catholic high school students from Kentucky encountered a group of Native Americans. And for the most part, they tell a similar story: A bunch of teen-age boys, many in “Make America Great Again” hats, made fools of themselves throughout the day in various ways…
…These boys — and make no mistake, they are still children — are hardly innocent.

Based merely on these two editorials you can see the demonstrable ideological inconsistency and hypocrisy on display from the Baltimore Sun Editorial Board, and that’s without even talking about last week’s dumpster fire of an editorial regarding dark money hysteria.
I encourage you to read both op-eds in their entirety, think about them, and draw your own conclusions.
