Yes, definitely a Flying Pigs moment.

Via BizPac Review.

A central Florida newspaper has apologized to its readers for the decidedly anti-Donald Trump coverage that has been published during the election.

The Daily Commercial published an editorial titled “The media, the election and bias” on Oct. 23 that explained the paper is reliant on wire services for much of its election coverage and those reports are weighted heavily against Trump.

“The Daily Commercial hasn’t done enough to mitigate the anti-Trump wave in the pages of this paper,” it wrote. “You deserve a more balanced approach to the coverage of elections and other weighty issues.”….

Here’s the mea culpa: The Daily Commercial hasn’t done enough to mitigate the anti-Trump wave in the pages of this paper. We’ve tried to be circumspect about the stories we run, the headlines we put on them, the political cartoons we publish (we recently abandoned our usual cartoonists in favor of a service that is not so unrelentingly anti-Trump). Our editors have even re-edited some wire stories that we thought used loaded language to describe Trump. But in retrospect, we haven’t gone far enough.

    Is it me, or do black swans and flying pigs always occur at the same time?

    Wonder if the newspaper has lost subscribers. News Services don’t lose papers subscribing to them so they don’t pay for their transgressions, the local papers do. Some rich conservative should look into establishing a news service to compete with AP. Go to the source. AP has gotten arrogant.

      I’ve seen a trend beginning, Alain. Media outlets are either noticing a drop in viewers/subscribers or expecting one. The law of unexpected consequences has reared its ugly head again.
