You’ve probably heard every news organization—ever—try hard to convince you that they are “on your side”, “looking out for you”, and so forth.
Making sure you have what you need. Like a drug dealer, only with the drug called “NEWZZZ!”

But the paper of record in the People’s Republic of Austin is taking that to a new level of insanity.
