Fair and Balanced

I found Sunday's editorial by John Costa "Convention Coverage Was Fair" to be laughable. I believe every publication has the right to espouse their beliefs, but why hide behind a smokescreen of impartiality when it is abundantly clear the Bulletin has been a GOP mouthpiece since the current owners took over? The Bulletin continually whines about its supposed impartiality and yet, every election year the Bulletin posts a list of ballot recommendations. I canceled my subscription to the Bulletin four years ago when it supported George Bush for President.

Honestly, I don't understand how any publication that recommended Bush for President can hope to make future recommendations and be taken seriously. How can we, as readers, trust the Bulletin's impartiality or judgement? I've voted for Republicans in the past and will do so again; however, I know the local GOP party has a lot of dead wood that needs clearing - Whisnant and Daly spring to mind. I don't remember The Bulletin recommending one Democrat or Independent in the 2004 "recommendations." How can a newspaper claim to be impartial and then support the large majority of Republican candidates in every single election? During a very weak moment, I was talked into a subscription to the Bulletin at this year's fair, but if they post their "recommendations" again this election year... I'll be canceling again.
