Times-Picayune uses their media hegemony to disparage Green Party Candidate
by VoteMalik Tuesday, Dec. 02, 2008 at 4:21 PM

The Times-Pic-a-lie uses their near monopoly to backhandedly support Republican at expense of Common Ground founder and Green Party candidate Malik Rahim

Bias and Media Distortion in the Times-Picayune

All of the Times-Picayune ( articles on the December 6 race attempt to margninalize the Malik Rahim campaign. Candidates offer alternative views" ignores Green Party candidate Malik Rahim, called him and his candidacy "little known," "lesser known," even "without a base" ! The Times-Picayune has not endorsed a candidate or written editorials in support of Cao, but instead use their "news" (see this gem on Times-Picayune sister site NOLA.COM to covertly support him at the expense of the Malik Rahim campaign.

Factual inaccuracies in the Times-Picayune

On Friday November 28, The Times-Picayune ignored basic journalistic ethics and reported factual inaccuracies, maligning the Malik Rahim Campaign in favor of their favorite candidate, Joseph Cao.

The Times-Picayune reported that Cao raised $58,900 from individuals and corporations plus $7,000 from national Republican groups.

However, the FEC
reports that he raised a total of $39,681 from individuals. The remainder of his $110,281 in total receipts was from loans.

By contrast they state that "Rahim reported that he collected about $2000 from individuals and corporate donors…" when in fact, the FEC report clearly shows $7,985 in individual contributions

The Malik Rahim campaign does not accept corporate contributions, and to date has raised well over $25,000 dollars.

Times-Picayune Refuse to Publish Letters to the Editor, citing that they don't publish letters that support a specific candidate.

Until the Times-Picayune and the Republican Party "made" Cao, Malik was by far the most well known of Bill Jefferson's challengers.
