Republicans moving from 1:3 to nearly 1:1 in only 20 years and now holding all but one county row office supports "trending more Republican," even if it wasn't spelled out in the story.

No bias necessary.

Yeah, that shift is valid. But the theory around Trib World was the Greensburg Trib's right wing editorial page helped to cause this change. It didn't. Fox News played a way bigger role, as did Rush and Glenn Beck. County Democrats ran out of gas when the party was taken over about 20 years ago by a bunch of liberal yuppies who cared more about their clique than the party as a whole. The old guard county Dems they replaced always looked out for themselves but also tried to keep the party strong. This new group of Democrats fluffed off a lot of the older activists at about the time the GOP started to surge. Some of those older Dems switched parties. The yuppie faction also blames the Trib for the shift; that way they don't have to blame themselves. End of story.
