If I see another newspaper or tv station peddling this kind of horseshit, I might just have to throw up.
"Dare County is the capital of travel and tourism," McCrory said. "One reason we were able to give teachers a pay raise was because of tourism spending."
The Capitol Press corpse and other mainstream media in North Carolina (and in this case, Virginia) fell for McCrory's head-fake on teacher pay like a bunch of bush-league rookies. Instead of starting with the only question that counts - where is the damn money coming from - they're reporting McCrory's "plan" as though it actually matters.
You've been played, guys. Every single one of you.
