Liberal Media Update #4627 Check out what the Appleton (WI) Post-Crescent is doing.

"[T]he editors have found themselves in a "quandary." They feel their Views page takes "the political and social temperature of the Valley." But now the question is: "How can we balance the perspectives and topics of our letters when many of our submissions have been coming only from one side?"

"We've been getting more letters critical of President Bush than those that support him. We're not sure why, nor do we want to guess. But in today's increasingly polarized political environment, we would prefer our offering to put forward a better sense of balance ...

"Since we depend upon you, our readers, to supply our letters, that goal can be difficult. We can't run letters that we don't have.

"If you would like to help us 'balance' things out, send us a letter, make a call or punch out an e-mail ... We'd love to hear from you."

I am sure other people can speculate.

Of course, the paper back-tracked, claiming that they were responding to criticism that they were biased. So basically, the editors are either weak-kneed liberals or clueless putzes. Of course, I'm not sure why, and I wouldn't want to guess. . . .
