For Easter Sunday, the Leesburg Daily Commercial chose to celebrate the meaning of Jesus by printing another hideously aggressive plutocratic diatribe from Russ Sloan. Does the hypocrisy of this little rag know no bounds?
Russ Sloan’s column in the Leesburg Daily Commercial degenerated into outright comedy this week as he professed his undying fondness for Mitt Romney. Sloan’s simplistic worldview prevents him from perceiving the deeper evils of the President he openly despises.
An intelligent, independent citizenry would question American military imperialism abroad and plutocratic economic dominance at home. Our corporate media, perfectly represented by the Leesburg Daily Commercial, exist not to encourage but to suppress such tendencies. Two examples follow.
With relentless and ruthless predictability, the Leesburg Daily Commercial is pressing the plutocracy’s case to cut social spending at a time when ordinary citizens are more beleaguered than ever.

Robert Short’s guest column for the Leesburg Daily Commercial was the worst we have ever read. Brimming with breathtaking arrogance and contempt for objective reality, it was a horrific piece of right-wing propaganda designed to yank the political center even further in the wrong direction.

In a hypocritical and patronizing lecture to its own readers, the Leesburg Daily Commercial revealed its closet racism and its failure to practice what it preaches. With help from Archbishop Desmond Tutu, we show them what real civic responsibility looks like.
The Leesburg Daily Commercial, through its in-house plutocratic sycophant, Russ Sloan, has referred to recipients of Social Security and Medicare as wild animals growing dangerously dependent on social assistance.

On Martin Luther King Day, the Leesburg Daily Commercial chose to insult Dr. King’s legacy by printing the ridiculous capitalist propaganda of Star Parker. We must reject their arrogant attempt to gloss over the teachings of one of the greatest Americans who ever lived.
