Whenever conservatives begin to gain a little power, you can expect the entrenched collectivist forces, aided and abetted by the “mainstream” media to start a War against us. Why are you surprised by the media’s sudden interest in the Gilbert school board’s decisions? Nothing like blood in the waters to attract the media sharks to go in for the kill.
The truth is that Media bias is so well established in America that it is measured by how much the American people distrust it. The mainstream media provides shoddy, glitzy, Leftist, junk journalism, yet people who think they know how to think still get hypnotized.
The mainstream media despises conservatives and every principle we stand for.
They sneer the words “TEA Party.” The only “governance” they promote is centralized, not self governance.
Look with your own eyes at what they report and what they ignore
Check your local and national news and see how they report on issues relating to Climate change, Darwinism, Medicaid expansion, the Unions, Obamacare, Religion/Christian Persecution, Racism, Abortion “Rights,” Gay Marriage, Private property rights, Wind Farms, Solar, “Undocumented” migrants, not to mention their total lack of reporting on the avalanche of opposition to Common Core (aka Arizona College and Career Ready Standards).
To the mainstream, government is the solution to every problem that government created in the first place. With a little investigation, they could offer unbiased journalism. But they are not unbiased. They are Leftist Progressives. (See Who is the Leftist? Who is the Liberal?)
Their most recent junk hit pieces would have you believe that GPS administrators have left in disgust over the actions of an imbecilic, TEA party (gasp) board, not due to a long standing system of destructive good old boy protectionism within the GPS hierarchy. Western Connections has been reporting on this for a few years. In fact "Westie" has reported on the abuses of the Good Old Boys so many times that the term has been shortened to GOB’s. (Here’s a sample: Gilbert Public Schools Admins: Still Stirring up Trouble.) These truths don’t fit the "mainstream’s" Leftist world view, so they make up what does: See Parents question Changes at Gilbert Public Schools
Here is the lie stated in another truly disgusting piece of junk journalism by Brahm Resnick: "Gilbert Town Councilwoman Jenn Daniels says her community must rally around its historically strong public schools, as turmoil at the School Board sends many educators out the door." If you watched this hit piece, he even pounded his fist on the table trying to get Council Member Daniels to throw "TEA Party"conservatives under the bus. She didn’t take the bait. (See Gilbert leaders plead for unity amid School Turmoil.)
The reason some of those administrators are resigning is very plain to most people who consult the space between their ears: Those administrators know their contracts won’t be renewed. Resignations are a graceful way out.
Never let the Truth get in the way of a good story, especially if it’s a hit piece against conservatives, right Brahm?

The Previous Board: Dereliction of Duty
Prior to the election of Ms. Staci Burk and Mr. Shane Stapley in November 2010, the Gilbert School Board had been voting in lockstep, approving virtually every recommendation spoon fed to them by Administration. Look up the Minutes of those “peaceful” meetings (if they haven’t been scrubbed). For years, the previous Gilbert School board had neglected one of their most important responsibilities: to be the community’s accountability mechanism, ensuring that school officials wisely and responsibly spend taxpayer dollars.
When Ms. Burk and Mr. Stapley took office in January 2011, the voting changed from a consistent, lockstep, no questions asked 5-0, to 3-2, and sometimes 4-1. Ms. Burk and Mr. Stapley began doing the unthinkable: They questioned Administration’s recommendations. They also began holding Administration accountable for their decisions.
