Hey, Star-Telegram, your bias is hanging out...


We've given them a few days to get caught up on the "news" but somehow they just don't.  We're betting that's why they don't get more customers.

The Fort Worth Weekly and The Fort Worth Business Press both reported on the ongoing Tarrant Regional Water District lawsuits, at the Texas Supreme Court and Federal Appellate levels.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram?  They reported on permanent water restrictions and an eminent domain pipeline that will take water to...Dallas.

Seriously?  WHO runs the paper?  HOW long will it last?

Read the news in the FW Biz Press here -

After suffering recent setbacks in state and federal district courts in Fort Worth, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit and the Texas Supreme Court have both ordered expedited document filings in the two separate lawsuits seeking elections.

“This is very unusual,” said Christopher Kratovil, who is representing the Rev. Kyev Tatum and his relatives in the federal appeal and John Basham and other activists in the state lawsuit. “It’s unusual to get an expedited briefing in one appeals court but I’ve never seen it happen in two courts in essentially the same case.

“I think it shows there are some questions about how the TRWD has been operating,” he said.

“We believe that the federal court erred and that the seats should be filled by election rather than selection,” Kratovil said.
