Peace Arena Not Upset Over Okie Funk's Blacklists?

Oklahoma leftwing blogger "Peace Arena" is upset over the lack of coverage of the recent Gay marriage protest (they were protesting in favor of gay marriage) in OKC which was in response to California voters overwhelmingly rejecting gay marriage in that state.

Exactly WHAT protesting at the Oklahoma state capital has to do with California... and what makes a couple hundred morons news is beyond me, other than the belief that we live in some third world country where one must rise up and protest in the streets to get action from a totalitarian regime. We don't.

My question for Peace Arena who accuses the Oklahoman newspaper of "blacklisting progressive community news" is this.

Hey Peace, why aren't you equally as upset that your pal Okie Funk "blacklisted" the Oklahoman from being used/sourced/linked by his students at Central University? Or that he blacklists all conservative blogs from his links in his blogging class website in favor of the daily kos?

Where is YOUR (and Doc Hoc's) fair and balanced approach to "blacklisting" I ask?

I refuse to buy the Oklahoman on several grounds.
It is the ONLY paper I know of in the country that prints a christian prayer on the front page. Friends from other parts of the country can’t imagine that.

BTW- The Oklahoman (and every other newspaper) prints pictures and does stories on "the one" every day and you don't seem to be offended by the constant coverage of Barack "the messiah".

What gives?

Having a prayer on the front page of a newspaper that serves perhaps the largest % per capita of Christian subscribers in all the land is not unusual at all but merely recognizing who it’s customers are.

Nobody is forced to read the prayer, agree with the prayer, believe the prayer or believe that God does or does not exist.

There is a lot of offensive stuff in newspapers every day… things that i disagree with and things that offend me, such is free speech my friends.

I canceled my subscription to the Denver Post due to it’s extreme leftist agenda on virtually every page… I don’t think they should ban the Denver Post or change it....I'm just not going to fund it.

Get over yourselves and learn to tolerate other views.
