On Saturday, Oct. 9, you reiterated your objectivity after Democrats objected to the Bush/Kerry photos. Have you mentioned this to your photo editor?

You did a thumbnail sketch on each of the county supervisor candidates, with photos. What a hatchet job the photo editor did on the conservative candidates. Nate Beason had his eyes closed, and the high angle shot of John Spencer emphasized his baldness. Linda Stevens’ photo made her appear severe. Conversely, the shot of Conklin features the cute little cowlick on his forehead.

I’ve yet to see a decent photo of John Spencer. He’s either scowling or has his mouth open. I did see one decent picture of Nate Beason. That must have hurt. The ultimate was Olivia Diaz’s photo. It was obviously done in a portrait studio. Your photo editor’s favoritism to NH 2020 candidates is pronounced.

When interviewed by a local radio station, the first reason she gave for her primary victory was her position against “sprawl.” The favorite “buss word” [sic] of NH 2020 supporters.
