It amazed me to read the editor of Sandusky Register claiming bias in the media does not matter if they give a factual story. That idea is the reason that newspapers are losing subscribers and laying off editors and reporters.

You may think that the bias does not show but it is obvious to me your bias is still showing through. Look at the articles about the candidates for president. Talk show host Glenn Beck does this every day with the battle of the headlines. Your reporting does nothing more then give stories that make Obama look like the Messiah reborn and make McCain look evil. In Sunday's paper there was an article about Palin breaking seperating of church and state -- which is no where in the Constitution -- but you never say how 80 percent of Alaskans still love her. Below it is an article about Reczko who is going to hurt Democrats in Illinois but not Obama because he is clean and the FBI is trying to make things up on him.

Where is the down and dirty reporting on how Reczko helped Obama? Afraid you will make your messiah look dirty? That is not unbiased reporting. It may have facts, but just enough facts to push your bias.

You may think that you are being honest and fair but your bias is showing in every article you do and until that stops you will keep losing subscribers and advertisers.

Talk radio is biased to the right but Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh all say they are for the right up front. The newspapers are pushing for the left but try to cover it up by saying they are balanced. That, my friend, is what you call an out and out lie to the readers.
