I write today to address the blatant political partisanship gushing beyond the editorial section of your newspaper — and soiling the pages of purportedly unbiased pieces of newspaper reporting. While I have contemplated writing you regarding this issue many times in the recent past, temperance and a belief in the sound judgment of your staff prompted me to wait a while before taking this action.
There are several instances of a lapse of journalistic integrity that can be found in the pages of your newspaper each week. Recently, in your Sunday edition, the front-page story described in great detail the impact of the late President Ronald Reagan upon many local Republican leaders. I could not help but wonder why the story limited its focus to Republican leaders, especially since countless other newspaper and television broadcasts have shown world leaders from all sides of the political aisle praising Ronald Reagan for demonstrating through great conviction and courage his faith in America — and humankind.
