Fair and Impartial News

I understand that the Post-Gazette doesn't want to be billed as the left-wing media, but give me a break. In an article regarding the recent passing of a bottled water limiting act by the U.S. Conference of Mayors (pure feel-good fluff with no potential enforcement or compliance) the Post-Gazette felt the need to end with this:

"On Monday, the International Bottled Water Association, a trade group that represents water bottlers worldwide, issued a statement calling the resolution erroneous and saying that it 'is not in the public interest and could discourage consumers from drinking bottled water.'"

By the way, I totally agree it's not in the public interest for the public to stop drinking bottled water. Those poor bottled water companies (like Coca-Cola) might end up going out of business and then our economy would truly be in a shambles. Everybody make sure to buy your bottle of water a day. Your economic stimulus check should cover it for this year.

Post-Gazette, next time, can you just talk about how much of a joke it is that this conference wasted their time on a resolution "encouraging" cities to do something that most of the mayors involved with aren't even acting on?

At least Mr Ravenstahl didn't feel the need to fly down to Miami for this golf outing of the mayors...
