Conklin defended

I have always respected The Union for its fairness and balanced reporting. Through all of the past accusations of bias and partisanship, I have felt that The Union has walked as careful a line down the middle as possible.

No more!

The recent smear campaign against Bruce Conklin has gone too far. Bringing up questionable practices is the duty of the news media, but using innuendo in writing and headlining is inexcusable. That should be left for the editorial page, not the news page.

We all tend to excuse the media when they write pieces that agree with our own bias, but how can we get facts when the media uses its power to skew the news? I had expected more from The Union.

Sadly, I was wrong.
