Compare and contrast the following statements from the same News & Observer article on the state budget:

Article author Lynn Bonner: “Legislators are set to vote on a historic $20.6 billion budget this week that would have the state take a giant step toward further privatization of education…”

Yevonne Brannon of Public Schools First NC: “This budget reflects a very aggressive campaign to privatize public education…”

A newspaper reporter parroting a left-wing talking point? Yup.
