TNT: News priorities lean to the left

In the Feb. 8 paper on the front page, The News Tribune ran a huge picture and story about a house being torn down to make way for a medical building. Inside the section were two stories of interest to most of us locals about Rick Santorum’s three state victories and Obamacare birth control mandate.

Sure seems to me that those stories belong on the front page!

You certainly managed to get the California gay-marriage issue on the front page, though! Your one-sided, left-leaning bent is painfully obvious. Your readers deserve better!

    And then they ran your right wing rant….

  2. Translation: “The TNT doesn’t give news stories the same priority I would, so obviously they’re biased, not me.”

  3. sandblower says:

    Eva wants the comics on the front page, I guess. All except Doonesbury that is.

  4. bobcat1a says:

    All you people out there better look under your beds and flush out those leftist, socialist, commie brainwashers.

  5. Frankenchrist says:

    Rick Santorum is obsessed with YOUR sex lives.

  6. Such mature responses here! Yours especially Frankenchrist. Are you related to the brilliant statesman, Al? It might explain your comment.

  7. Anyone can find evidence demonstrating a bias in any direction if that is what they are looking for.

  8. Harry_Anslinger says:

    The TNT is not a ‘left-leaning’ newspaper. That distinction would fit the Seattle Times maybe.

  9. ManuelMartini says:

    I find Frankenchrist’s comment to be very mature and on target. Anyone denying that Santorum is obsessed with other’s sex lives would probably deny Santorum’s abortion.

  10. Eva obviously doesn’t read the TNT. Look at the national Opinion columnists; Krauthammer, Parker, Will, Samuelson, Gerson, Parker, Pitts, & Robinson. Six righties, and two progressives. Hmmm…

  11. whatever, you get the point; five and two.
