Diane Sawyer Reports on Ark Park

Louisville native Diane Sawyer never misses an opportunity to give national exposure to weird stories coming out of Kentucky.

Tonight, she highlighted the controversy regarding Gov. Steve Beshear's plan to use public money for the proposed Ark Park in northern Kentucky. Here's the link.

The piece did not quote any Kentucky politicians other than Beshear, which is unfortunate, because Phil Moffett made an excellent point about the plan: one need not reach the constitutional issue of whether the state aid constitutes an establishment of a religion, because government has no business giving money to any private business. As Moffett told Joe Gerth,“It isn't an issue of religion at all; it's an issue of taxing everyone too much so politicians can spread the money around when it suits their political agendas.”
