Possibly the state’s most read newspaper for political coverage, the Times Picayune/NOLA.com, has yet to report on a controversy involving Sen. Mary Landrieu’s Chief of Staff Don Cravins Jr.
Cravins was filmed by an undercover group saying that Landrieu will continue to support President Obama’s agenda 97 percent of the time, something the Louisiana Democrat has been criticized for widely, as a majority of Louisiana voters are against Obama’s agenda.
But, the Times Picayune has shown no interest in covering the story. In fact, here are five stories the newspaper found more interesting:
#1: Sen. Landrieu calls on Bill Cassidy to bring LSU employment records to Monday’s debate
#2: U.S. senators campaign for Landrieu across New Orleans
#3: Bobby Jindal gets advice on when to make presidential announcement from political website
#4: Louisiana colleges have fewer international students, according to Pew
#5: Iowa newspaper ranks Bobby Jindal fifth among Republican presidential candidates travel
Note: The Times Picayune has endorsed Landrieu twice in her race against Rep. Bill Cassidy (R-LA). We’re sure that has nothing to do with the paper’s lack of coverage.
