Daily Sun biased?

To the Editor: Before I start this let me say that my wife and I are conservative independents and are senior citizens. The Daily Sun ran two articles concerning the Republican National Convention neither of which rated front page coverage and focused only on local participants. Although the Sun saw fit to run a front page color picture and article about our ultra-liberal leader and his wife during the R.N.C., the Sun apparently chose not to discuss any of the Republicans proposed platforms or political changes that were proposed.

Then came the Democratic National Convention. Now the Sun decides it’s a good thing to give front page coverage before, during and after the convention, although there were no significant changes in what we have had for the last four years.

We are all familiar with the media bias presented by the networks ABC, CBS and NBC. Somehow I thought the Daily Sun was above this. I feel sure the Sun will blame this on the Associated Press and their affiliation, however I know some of the reporters for the Sun and they are intelligent people that are capable of reporting in an unbiased manner.

The area that the Sun services has a diverse public base of which a large number are Republican and Independents. I would worry about losing part of that base if I were the editor or owner. If it were not for the obituaries, crosswords and the T.V. Guide we would probably be one of those cancellations.

P.S. —  I feel sure the Sun will not print this but at least I’ve got it off my chest.


To the Editor: The best part of the DNC was the pledge of allegiance by Gabrielle Giffords. There were few dry eyes among those who heard what was a testimony to her love for America, in spite of her terrible injury. The worst part of the DNC was dropping the approval of Jerusalem and God from the platform, then needing three tries to put them back  at Obama's request, and the resulting outcries and boos. It is a reminder that the old Democrat Party of our parents is no more. It has been hijacked.

Dems think there is no such thing as fraudulent voting. Yet, they demanded picture ID's of fellow dems to attend  and vote on the party platform. I guess they know who votes fraudulently.  

Perhaps the best thing at the RNC was Clint Eastwood's empty chair routine. He now says, "Obama is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people." You get the same idea from the documentary, 2016.  

People are waking up to the reality that we elected a dictator who hates America. Some one has said, "Every time history repeats itself, the price of the lesson goes up."

Pray to God for forgiveness, for strength to pay the price, and that it is not too late.
