The News & Record recently wrote an editorial taking Gov. Cooper’s side on the state budget impasse by claiming the General Assembly should pass Medicaid expansion because a WRAL poll found that a majority of people “agreed with Cooper.” The title of the editorial is, “Will of the people.”
This begs the question: Why does the News & Record oppose voter ID, which North Carolina’s voters approved in a referendum? The News & Record cheered a recent court decision striking down voter ID, despite the fact that voters asked for it by a decisive margin (55-45 percent). Was that not the “will of the people?”
Let’s get this straight. We should take action based on a poll, but not take seriously the will of the people when they cast their vote at the ballot box?
This is major hypocrisy. Apparently the “will of the people” only matters when it fits the News & Record’s agenda.

Great point by Sebastian. We are all tired of the N&O’s hypocrisy.
Mr.King is spot-on about the voter ID law. It was created as a way of keeping thug organizations like the now-defunct ACORN from tampering with elections. The bigger problem though is rogue leftist judges legislating from the bench. Perhaps we can Mr. King elected and he can introduce legislation to make the judiciary more accountable for their actions.
The “news and record” has always been left of left! Why does anyone still subscribe to it or read it? It’s worthless!
Why even read the N & R ? They’re so one sided and liberal that you can’t believe anything they print. For local news and facts I listen to 94.5 FM. the early morning show comes out of Raleigh.
Again I plead with the Rhino times to return to a printed version of the old format, where Conservatives could connect and voice their concerns and opinions. And read John Hammer’s column. I would be happy to subscribe and pay a small fee. And I’d be willing to bet that the Rhino Times would have a much larger readership than the N&R. It certainly used to, but I seldom bother to read it in its present online only form.
I agree with Mr. King. I would also like to subscribe to a print version of the. Rhino.
Mr. King is spot on! I would also like to subscribe to a print version of the Rhino.
I have sent this article to Chicago Newspapers with no success. If you can distribute it in your newspaper that would be great, either as a letter to the editor or an article. I am not looking to get paid in any way, I just have to speak up, I can not stand not to.

Pushing Apartheid Forward
CHICAGO — To mark the second anniversary of her swearing-in, Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot announced that she would only grant one-on-one interviews to Black and Brown journalists.
She defended her decision during her one on one with WGN’s Tahman Bradley.
A white reporter for a conservative media outlet is suing Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot over her decision to grant interviews at the midpoint of her first term only to journalists of color, saying she discriminated against him because of his race.
In writing this article I have decided not to read the mayor’s reasoning, I could not see any reason that would nullify the laws of this country, separate the races and perpetuate a platform based on ignorance and prejudice.
You cannot make this stuff up. This comment makes it so difficult to decide on a starting point for any discussion. It demonstrates such ignorance and ineptness that it is hard to imagine any ONE would vote for her. This type of comment fuels separation and discrimination seen only during the highpoint of apartheid. Are people so fueled by ignorance that they cannot see the issue that they are causing. Below is a definition of Bigot. Mayor Lori Lightfoot should read this.
a person who is obstinately or unreasonably attached to a belief, opinion, or faction, especially one who is prejudiced against or antagonistic toward a person or people on the basis of their membership of a particular group.
I find this type of public behavior inexcusable by someone who was voted in office. If I were an Afro-American, I would be appalled by this comment because it tends to separate me from my neighbors. Some politicians are so full of themselves and so ignorant of our laws that they are pushing us directly towards apartheid, separate, separate, separate!
I just saw a newscast that played an audio tape between the mayor and other government representatives. The profanity ran rampant and anyone could hear the frustration of a city letting the criminal element take over. The police hands were tied with non-engagement instructions, how frustrating that must be. To all of the Chicago Police, my heart goes out to you and my support is here for you. I am proud to support the Police!!
