Letter: Not so balanced

Editor:

When a columnist writes a piece entitled, “How to select a candidate who tells the truth,” one would think that columnist would keep their own politics from the column! Not so with Toni Denis. I’ve never read any of her articles but can tell you what side of the political fence she sits on. To wit:

“Some newspapers, such as The New York Times and the Washington Post, pride themselves on accuracy....”

“You can almost always rely on their [the NY Times and Washington Post] facts.”

“... is consistently inaccurate because of biases, such as that of FOX ‘News.’”

“Wild claims have been made as to the value of ... the protective powers of guns...”

“...how changes in the climate are not man-made, despite voluminous evidence to the contrary.”

“If, like Trump, they’re involved in more than 4,000 lawsuits, lead people by hate...”

When a columnist purports to speak factually there should be a disclaimer in the column about the political bias of the writer, especially when the column is so one-sided. At least on FOX News an attempt is made to highlight the party affiliation, more often than not, when someone is introduced.
