Minnesota Budget and the St. Paul Pioneer Press

The dominant paper in Minnesota is and has been the Minneapolis Star & Tribune, a parody of a liberal paper.  Via the Powerline blog, which links to it, there is a very useful summary of the Minnesota budget showdown in the rival St Paul Pioneer Press.  The piece concludes with:

"One side tends to see government in expansive terms, based on the perceived needs and demands for services. The other tends to see government in limited terms, bounded by the amount of money coming in. Reasonable people differ on which is the best approach. It is important to understand both perspectives, as well as the numbers that form the budget's inevitable bottom line."

Nicely put, and something that would never appear in the Strib.
