North Dakota Sen. Heidi Heitkamp’s seat may be the one Democratic-held Senate seat most at risk in the upcoming elections. But there was little acknowledgment of that reality – or one reason why it might be so – in reporter Catie Edmondson and data-cruncher Rachel Shorey’s validating Sunday New York Times piece “A ‘No’ Vote on Kavanaugh Yields a Windfall for Heitkamp’s Campaign Coffers."

A 2:00 p.m. Wednesday deadline to leave the area looms for hundreds of bitter-ender protesters at the Dakota Access Pipeline site following Donald Trump's January 24 executive order advancing its approval.

February 11th, 2017 4:17 PM
This post was going to be about the establishment press's handling of the story of the mountainous and environmentally dangerous accumulation of trash left behind by Dakota Access Pipeline protesters.

March 27th, 2013 2:56 PM
Only some social issues are divisive in the Plains states, or so implies the New York Times. A sour tone permeated Wednesday's front-page story by John Eligon and Erik Eckholm from Fargo on North Dakota's strict new abortion laws, which ban abortions based on sex or disability and forbid abortion once a fetal heartbeat is detectable: "New Laws Ban Most Abortions in North Dakota." Yet Colorado's…
