Can’t handle fair coverage

Once again I read a letter accusing The Spokesman-Review of being a leftist newspaper. I always find that amusing since you have endorsed every Republican candidate for president for as many years as I can remember.

Ken Campbell (April 11) says you need to tell us all about the record of Brendon Kaluza-Graham who was shot and killed by Gail Gerlach in the process of stealing his car. Funny, I remember you doing just that. And for all the letter writers saying it was the same exact situation with the police officer who shot Shonto Pete, there is one big difference: Pete is still alive, and it was the jury that found the officer not guilty after the prosecutor rightly charged him. No evidence of taking care of your own on the part of the police department.

I find your paper to be very fair with its coverage, and even the opinion pages are balanced along with the editorial cartoons, too. Anyone can find bias if they look for it.

Some people just can’t take any criticism of their side and, when it is true, it is not bias.
