KANKAKEE DAILY JOURNAL
— Bias in the newspaper? – David Giuliani (DIERSEN: GOPUSA ILLINOIS is biased in favor of the Illinois Republican Party platform, the Republican Party platform, and the Milton Township Republican Central Committee resolution against video gambling. That is why those who reject all or part of the aforesaid work so hard a) to stop me from putting GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails together and sending them out and b) to stop everyone from reading the emails.)
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Earlier this week, a reader noted we run stories from the Illinois News Network. He accused the group of having a conservative bias. What is the Illinois News Network? It started a few years ago as an arm of the Chicago-based Illinois Policy Institute, which bills itself as libertarian and often is referred to as conservative. Last January, the institute revealed that it had transferred the network to the Franklin Center for Government and Public Integrity, another Chicago-based group. Some of Franklin’s executives are connected to conservative organizations. According to a January story in Crain’s Chicago Business, the conservative Koch brothers gave millions to the center, but is no longer funding the group. I looked through some of the recent stories on the network’s website. They seemed balanced to me. A story about abortion included both sides. Same with one about marijuana legalization. At the same time, the network runs stories about subjects that might be particularly appealing to conservatives. One such recent example is a story about work rules for food stamp recipients. That piece, though, included both sides of the debate. In an email to me, Dan McCaleb, editor of the network, noted it is a 501c3 nonprofit and therefore, by definition, cannot be political or partisan. “INN distinguishes itself by focusing on state issues that are most relevant to taxpayers, and making sure the taxpayers’ side of the story is represented, as well as government’s,” said McCaleb, a former editor for suburban McHenry County’s Northwest Herald. “INN strives to fill a gap in statehouse coverage because many media companies do not have the resources to cover the capitol, and those that do often do not include the taxpayers’ perspective in their reporting.”)

— Trump’s Executive Order Freezing Federal Pay Saves Taxpayers from Extraordinary Pay Increases – Rachel Greszler (DIERSEN: The Daily Signal should write an article about reasons why people do not want to work for the federal government. The Daily Signal could focus on how the Democrats who run the federal government use the subjectivity in its employment policies a) to hire, retain, and promote young Democrat minorities and young Democrat females and b) to get rid of its employees who are Republican, White, male, and/or non-veteran who do not make GS-13 (currently $96,403) by age 25, GS-14 (currently $113,920) by age 30, GS-15 (currently $134,000) by age 35, and Senior Executive Service (currently $164,200) by age 40.)
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Federal pay should depend on workers’ skills, experience, and performance—not just their years of service and across-the-board annual pay increases. Ideally, Congress should address federal employee pay and compensation through a broad reform package—addressing not only federal pay, but total compensation also including retirement, health, vacation, and other benefits—that would better align federal compensation with that of the private sector and better tie pay to performance.)
