LETTER: Paper’s cold shoulder to GOP signals bias

Thank you for being one of our most loyal readers. Please consider supporting community journalism by subscribing.


Many people question the bias of the media. Many people have stopped reading newspapers. The front page of your paper on Feb. 28 was Exhibit A of why this is happening.

The bold headline read “Democrats Vie For Votes.” Are they the only party having an election? The headline was followed by in-depth questions and answers by only Democrats. Is this fair and equal treatment by your paper? Is it ethical to give only one side of a story? Is it fair to the Republican, or other party, candidates — or voters in general — to only highlight Democrats?

I stopped my subscription to the Raleigh News & Observer because of its extreme bias to liberal and Democrat issues. Don’t make many of us make the same decision about your paper.
