Oregonian Not Covering Oregon's Historic Energy Vote

Update: 1:56 pm, and still nothing.

As of 10:18 a.m., the Oregonian -- Oregon's largest newspaper -- still hasn't covered yesterdays's ground-breaking, historic vote in the state Senate on the Clean Electricity and Coal Transition Plan, except for this piece which was more about the politics and machinations at the state's capital than the bill itself.

Yet, the NY Times has, as has NPR, Oregon television stations, the Portland Tribune, the Seattle Times, the Associated Press, and many other news organizations.

Is it possible (let alone ethical) for an entire newspaper to throw a snit because its Editorial Board is opposed to a bill that passed? Seems so.
