Zimmerman: Post Dispatch Silence Is Deafening

As the news broke on Stuart Zimmerman’s special tax assessment treatment by the Charlie Dooley administration and the questions started flowing to his son and County Assessor candidate Jake Zimmerman, I began to watch the Post Dispatch web site to see how they handled the story.

About half-way down the image, you can see that the PD was burning the midnight oil to get out the story on Zimmerman’s opponent L.K. “Chip” Wood being late on his business property taxes.

So, considering the Zimmerman story also started breaking on 3/24/11, we could assume that this story would also appear quickly!

Maybe they needed a heads up on this story, so I contacted their Politics Reporter Jake Wagman.

Again, crickets:

Jake Zimmerman - StL PD Stories - 20110329 - 02

We’ll see if he replies.

No worries; I’m sure the Editorial Department’s endorsement (below) of Jake Zimmerman will not bleed over into the news department, and the father’s assessment story will appear soon.

“If there must be an elected assessor, it should be someone professional enough to understand the complications of the job and compassionate enough to care about people with problems. Also, his taxes should be current. We recommend Jake Zimmerman.”

Hopefully, the PD Editorial Department will let us know if they continue to recommend candidates who obviously engage in favoritism and nepotism.

  1. A nothing story? I think it’s pretty interesting. If the PD printed about Zimmerman’s father getting special treatment and didn’t print anything about Wood’s late taxes i’m sure you would think it was an interesting story….cover up the left’s antics but print the right’s antics…..typical unethical tactics.
