According to most definitions “Media bias is the bias or perceived bias of journalists and news producers within the mass media in the selection of events and stories that are reported and how they are covered.

The term “media bias” implies a pervasive or widespread bias contravening the standards of journalism.”

This describes the constant barge of anti-Obama editorials, opinions, and cartoons routinely published in the Sun-Gazette.

Your recent opinions against Obama care are particularly disturbing.

Where are the “principles of – truthfulness, accuracy, objectivity, impartiality, fairness and public accountability – as these apply to the acquisition of newsworthy information and its subsequent dissemination to the public” and as demanded by the Code of Journalism Ethics and Standards?

While you may think you are doing a service to your conservative base, think of the majority who find your comments disingenuous and of all the potential advertisers you alienate.
