Gannett’s Journal News Produces New Maps

Home - by - December 28, 2012 - 03:04 America/New_York - 35 Comments

Gannett offers this statement with the release of each map:

One of the roles of journalists is to report publicly available information on timely issues, even if it is unpopular. We knew providing the information in the database in the context of our story would be controversial, but we thought that sharing this information was important in the aftermath of… whatever.

    I want a map of people who are registered Dems. Then we’d know who the idiots are.

    Brilliant. Is this a BFH production? I think it is but don’t see your stamp.

    scribble – I think the dem map would correlate perfectly with the abortion and aids maps shown. New York Times subscribers? Voil’a! Another perfect match.

    What else?

    I don’t think there are enough dots on the top map.

    And they should be tear-shaped.

    liberal enclaves are always concerned about protecting the “rights” of criminals.In the interest of educating it’s readers, they should have maps of sex offenders, bail jumpers, and everyone else who poses a risk to society.

    GENERATIONAL WELFARE RECIPIENTS – uber brilliant!

    This map is also a good start for those who voted for Obama. Just add the rest of the liberals.

    Is that all the Jews there are?

    Since when do women rent porn?

    I wonder whether the Journal-News got any letters-to-the-editor requesting the writers’ names be added to the published list, legitimately or not, as a precaution against potential burglaries?

    BS! Gannett is lying about why they did it. First they have an agenda to push. Secondly, they wanted the controversy as it would encouraged people to buy and read their rag. It was just a ploy to increase sales; profitting off of dead children. Remember if it bleeds it leads.

    That abortion map represents all the murders that took place – murders of unborn children. The HIV map represents people who are likely to spread their disease to unsuspecting people who in turn spreads the disease further. It represents billions of dollars in medical costs and millions of lives destroyed. This is far worse than what any gun owner could possibly do. The welfare map represents people who are fine with taking other people’s money, it is legalized theft. And, the government has their greasy fingers in all of it.
