Balance or bias?

To the Editor:

The Northwest Herald is great at covering local news (that is not political). But their coverage of political candidates who don’t fit their mold, like the Northwest Herald’s reporting about unions, is extremely biased.

During the past year, the public was subjected to the Republican “Clown Car” primary, with a seemingly endless parade of extreme candidates. The vicious attacks aired by Republican candidates against each other were unprecedented.

After the primary, the Republican Party was like a satellite falling out of orbit. They continued to spin and wobble uncontrollably while the tea party, Mitt Romney and Karl Rove all wrestled to take control. Why doesn’t Rove run for office? Did the Republican you voted for take the Grover pledge? You didn’t vote for Rove, did you?

Now that the election is over and the blame game has begun, it’s like cannibals on parade. The Republican Party is breaking up on re-entry. They must have Alzheimer’s. It’s like the election never happened. The minority losers refuse to move our country forward. Instead, they insist on perpetuating gridlock in a feeble attempt to make President Barack Obama look bad.

Speaker of the House John Boehner can’t even control his party members. What a leader. Why hasn’t the Northwest Herald printed articles or cartoons about the ongoing Republican embarrassments?

Maybe you should report: Rove and Grover are over, and so is their (Republican) “Party.”
