Newhouse's glorious 2006

A year-end look-back at the news highlight of 2006: negativity in politics

Oregon's contests were marked by a reported $75 million in non-reported, loopholed political contributions from the Newhouses and The Oregonian. In coordination with the government union group Our Oregon, The Oregonian campaigned vigorously to defeat 9 of 10 ballot measures.

Credit the emerging advocacy-activism to the next generation of Newhouse shot-callers, led by Steven Newhouse. His refinement of the news-political campaign template has upside potential for his family's political preferences.

The forces of political power in 2006 invite all Oregonians to pray that our long, national nightmare of free competition in political speech is finally over.
