Letter to the editor

Amendment piece unfair, biased

November 10, 2006

I was disappointed in Kate Garlock’s Nov. 3 article, “Election to determine fate of same-sex couples.” Not one sentence in the whole article suggested that there might be another side to this issue.

The article goes on and on about how bad the marriage amendment would be. I kept waiting for even the slightest suggestion that there was some support for the amendment -- but it never materialized.

At best, this is lazy journalism unfit for publication in a serious newspaper. At worst, it was a biased attempt to affect the outcome of this referendum. The editor should have insisted on a balanced reporting on this important topic.
