Two Nov. 17 Free for All letters [“No bias in favoring best ideas and candidates”] attempted to defend The Post against charges of bias by claiming that the paper is simply endorsing the party of “very good ideas” or the “most capable candidates.” But these views are opinions, not facts. The writers are essentially saying that The Post is not biased because they agree with its views.
The Post is entitled to its bias in its editorials; that does not bother me. But I am very annoyed when bias creeps into news articles and enters into determinations of which articles to print, which to emphasize and which to deemphasize or omit. I continue to see numerous examples of this.
