In case anyone needed a clue as to why The Detroit News wasn’t acting like the Conservative Newspaper that it once was?
Digital First Media certainly pays its employees well to act like something they are not.
Hmmm, I wonder if Stephen Henderson is really a conservative???

As if one couldn't see Finley is the Bill Milliken of the Lying Press? Both dying Fake News papers gave their entire editorial staff's buyout offers for a reason. Why people pay to read their bullshit is beyond my comprehension.
Ps. the pothead Paultard you're tipping your hat to, which resigned his position after stealing from Grand Haven school board in 2010, was recently convicted in less than an hour for 10 counts of felony election law fraud and, is facing 5 years in the hoosegow, which sentencing is at 1 p.m. on December 27.
Be that as it may, this post was about Nolan Finley's donation to the DNC, not local Grand Haven politics.
That's where I first read about this along with the links to the campaign finance statements, so that is why he was acknowledged.
The Lying Press is steeped in their own Fake News: https://twitter.com/GaryMiles_DN/status/810525750445142017
Nice spin. Now here is what I don't get here:
1.) Why is Nolan talking about a $3,200 "deposit" for a hotel room, when the campaign finance statement clearly states the amount was $2,600?
2.) Why is the address listing Nolan's home address in Livonia and not that of The Detroit News in Detroit?
3.) There are penalties for falsifying a campaign finance statement. The is a link above for the FEC reporting website showing Nolan's contribution.
I might be able to see the "practical joke" aspect from Team "d", but are they actually willing to fork over some $$$ over it?
I'm leaning strongly towards "no".
People much smarter than me [and the Detroit News] figure that the Michigan Democratic State Central Committee sold Never Trump Nolan hotel rooms in 2015 that only cost them $ 600. The difference between this cost and the $ 3,200 Never Trump Nolan says he paid for the rooms was a $ 2,600 profit for the Democrats. Never Trump Nolan apparently used a credit card in his own name, and his own address.
As a non profit organization run by idiots with only a weak understanding of money and accounting, the Michigan Democratic State Central Committee didn't have a financial ledger line item for this. So they booked the $ 2,600 profit as a contribution. In truth, it was indeed a contribution from a reckless idiot.
Roman stoic humorist Lucius Annaeus Seneca anticipated just this circumstance 2,000 years ago. Paraphrasing him:
Qui cum Democratii concumbunt, cum pulicibus surgent
Lay down with Democrats [even in a hotel room], wake up with fleas
Speaking of the Detroit News under Never Trump Nolan's management, Crain's Detroit Business just reported another 20 layoffs of their dwindling editorial staff. Alden Global Capital LLC, a front for Randall Duncan Smith of Smith Management LLC, is gradually rewarding Never Trump Nolan for his business and political acumen. By the 2020 election, the Detroit News should be little more than an obscure Twitter account run from Never Trump Nolan's Livonia home.
Thank you 10x25MM.
That quote alone brought a smile to an otherwise lousy day that I'm having (in 6 degree weather).
Yep, and as the Detoilet News/Freep fades, the new Crain's/Bridge conglomeration plays musical chairs for Detoilets' Lying Press dopey shitlibs.
