No News Is Good News?


W
e're always amused at the cut-and-paste, mish mash that Kevin Blier and his fellow minions at the Center for American Cultural Renewal/Vermont Renewal try to pass off as a compendium of news stories not likely to be covered by the average Vermont news outlet.  They call their irregularly published news column, "Real Vermont News".  Relying as it does on bigoted sources such as WingNutDaily, the heterofascist Tony Perkin's Family Research Council, along with a smattering of out-of-context items lifted from gay sites, there's little surprise at its theoconservative bent.

What we have found interesting is the CFACR "news" site's unwillingness to cover the stunning defeat of Kevin W. Blier, their director, at last month's Town Meeting in Brandon, VT, that we reported on here and here.

In "Real Vermont News", CFACR's stab at Newspeak, unwanted electoral results, like unwanted words or people, are simply disposed of or ignored.


What do fellow GOP conservatives say about The Center for American Cultural Renewal? "...(A)n organization with no Washington presence and little clout with social conservatives outside Vermont where it is based."
