So there you have it. When Democrats lard up an emergency bill, Washington reporters say it is for “pet projects.”
When Republicans do it, it is pork.
Put that alongside calling tax-exempt groups “non-profits” and calling lobbyists for liberal causes “activists.”
This is all on the same shelf as the journalism rule that when a Republican is a crook, you identify his party immediately. If Democratic, disclosing the party affiliation is optional.
Could this be true?
