They could have at least made him a happy looking old white dude. Or angry young white dude, or possibly angry old white chick. I know they couldn't go with angry old black dude. But nooo, they had to go full monty.

Wow that is one media company that really knows its target demographic.

I audibly laughed.

So conservatives, even the marketing companies that work for your own papers view you as little more than butthurt old white guys. Please stop whining to us about our characterizing you as butthurt old white guys.

So awesome.

Are you terrified of new ideas and contrary opinions? Do you prefer to believe that your discredited ideas are simply being censored by a liberal drive-by media. Do you feel that it's a waste of time to subject your ideology to the most basic intellectual analysis? Would you be happier just having self-reinforcing opinions spoon fed to you in a way that doesn't require thought or contemplation? Then subscribe to the Tampa Tribune today!

and a liberal, not a conservative.

Therefore there's no way he could be an angry white guy. In fact he's quite the opposite of angry, he's quite gay.

Yes...the average demographic for Tampa. I don't think they really have to try that hard. Now down in Sarasota, they need to try a bit harder:

Evidence? Oh, you have none.

That's not what TFA says. Second, It's a farking blog entry on the paper's site. There's no problem distinguishing between news and opinion in TFA. Third, "The Tampa Tribune" is making no effort to be an objective news source. They're going straight for the right wing with blatant bias. When the St Petersburg Times puts out a similar advertisement targeting liberal readers, you can claim they're the same. Until then, you're a willfully ignorant fark who's completely full of shiat like usual.

Hurrrrr... liberal media! Derp derp.

I thought the biased paper run by conservatives sent a direct mailing campaign to send the message to U.S. Postal Service customers that conservatives are old white guys, and the biased paper run by liberals is totally laughing at them for it. But maybe you didn't understand the story.
 
2011-06-09 11:58:07 AM
The Trib is garbage.

The Times has naming rights on an arena in downtown Tampa as a little "fark you" to them.

so american idol judges write news commentaries on their off time, who knew?

No, it's not the old, it's not the white, it's not even the racism, it's the cranky.

My dad is old, my dad is white, my dad called Obama "that colored guy," my dad's a registered republican, but he isn't cranky. And therefore he hasn't voted for a state/national republican candidate in almost 20 years, (except for our state rep and that's because he's lives down the street from him).
