You’re biased!

I’ve talked to people in my neighborhood and friends from out of my neighborhood and I took an impromptu poll. I asked them what they thought of Sound Off. Many of them said we have called in very articulate calls regarding President Trump defending him and giving conservative ideas and the calls were never posted. However, I looked in today’s Sound Off about President Trump supporters being losers and suckers. Sound Off is getting further and further left and more biased day-by-day. Of course, that’s only my opinion. Editor: If you want to consistently see your calls into Sound Off, here’s some tips for all readers: 1. Keep it short and 2. Avoid constantly addressing national-level politics. There are thousands of calls bashing Trump and supporting Biden that we also haven’t ran. It’s tiring to listen to the same calls every day — Trump is a racist. Trump is the greatest. Biden is out of it. Biden is a man of integrity. Beneath the surface, they’re all the same. Call about local issues, keep it short and not defamatory and the odds of your call hitting the paper is probably near 90%. If you can make us laugh without being defamatory, I promise it’s 100%. As far as our perceived bias, I can tell you I’ve fielded calls accusing us of both liberal and conservative biases at almost a 50-50 rate. The reality is we care about local issues, and that’s where we spend our time. You are correct about one thing — everything on this page is biased — that’s what makes it an opinion page and I thank you for sharing yours.

donnie was right - "A good leader does not panic a country into suicides and mayhem." He just leaves almost 200,000 people die...
