It has always been my belief that the news media has a sacred obligation to report the news as it is and not colored with personal opinion. Of course, the Opinion Page should impartially allow for the people to voice their opinions.
I find it disturbing that you have used your position as the only major newspaper in the area to support a candidate running for office. You have printed, in bold letters, nearly a full page, supporting Caren Ray and criticizing Lynn Compton. This is unfair!
So often, I have heard complaints about how candidates, at all levels of government, have won votes because of the bias of the media. This recent printing supports that belief. Strangely this seems more often to occur in the case of supporting liberal candidates.
