TNT: Liberal bias is all too obvious

Why don’t I subscribe to The News Tribune anymore? Its liberal bias disgusts me.

I walked by a News Tribune paper box at a retail store on the day after Super Tuesday and glanced at the front-page headline. It said, “Romney barely wins key Ohio primary.”

The real political news of the day was obvious: that Romney won six of 10 Super Tuesday contests, including Ohio, or that he more than doubled his delegate lead over Rick Santorum, and quadrupled his lead over the third-place challenger.

But you liberals can’t report the news accurately anymore. You love to put a liberal spin on the news. You promote your liberal opinions in headlines and throughout stories and find fault with conservatives and Republicans at every turn. You and most of the media have become incapable of reporting the facts. You’re not believable any more.

Until you recognize your failures and correct them, your subscriptions and revenue will continue to tail off as the public finds more reliable sources of accurate, unbiased news.
