Conservative author, writer and film producer Dinesh D’Souza will be speaking at San Antonio’s Trinity University on Tuesday, March 7, and the liberal SA Express-News has published a critical commentary that might encourage and justify leftist protests at the event. It is yet another example of local media bias and how it supports the leftist agenda.
The article by Gilbert Garcia pretends to be balanced as he defends Trinity students Jonah and Manfred Wendt who organized the event, but criticizes D’Souza for his beliefs.
Garcia uses two paragraphs to report about how one third of the flyers announcing the event were returned with rude and nasty comments to the Wendt brothers. However, he devotes the next 12 paragraphs criticizing D’Souza and his beliefs.
Texans should be aware that San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro and the SA Chamber of Commerce may have provoked a new “battle of the Alamo”. He has made some initial moves to allow the United Nations to influence and possibly even manage the Alamo. SA Express/News began a soft sell of the idea in their Sunday, September 15, 2013 opinion page.
It has been reported that Mayor Castro and his close ally, City Councilman Diego Bernal, have been meeting with U.S. Department of Interior officials about the future of San Antonio’s historical missions. Castro and the SA Chamber want to make the old Spanish missions a greater tourist attraction by designating them national and world cultural treasures.
