The lib­eral me­dia’s fa­vorite whip­ping boy

Baltimore Sun - - WORLD - John Reid, Spar­rows Point

Read­ing your let­ters col­umn I was once again struck by the ra­bid lib­eral bias of your con­trib­u­tors re­gard­ing for­mer pres­i­dent Ge­orge W. Bush (“Obama’s flood per­for­mance,” Aug. 29).

All one needs do is com­pare the for­mer pres­i­dent to the cur­rent oc­cu­pant of the White House to arouse the vi­tu­per­a­tive slan­ders and li­bels against the last Repub­li­can pres­i­dent.

It is as­ton­ish­ing to me that The Sun can even claim to of­fer un­bi­ased cov­er­age of the news. There was a brief hope in the as­tound­ing car­toon about a week ago that tarred both can­di­dates with a truth­ful brush and of­fered a diver­gent per­spec­tive from the pat rants of Democrats. But it didn’t last.

It has been eight years since Mr. Bush va­cated the White House. Yet the venom lib­er­als spew at him is for­ever spurt­ing.

As a park ranger I en­thu­si­as­ti­cally vol­un­teered to work the Na­tional Christ­mas Tree Light­ing cer­e­mony presided over by Mr. Bush in 2001. But I would re­spect­fully de­cline to see the cur­rent oc­cu­pant il­lu­mi­nate the tree.

I can bite my tongue, as most con­ser­va­tives are ex­pected to do, or be stri­dently drowned out by the lib­eral din.

The Sun may shine a light, but it’s not for all be­cause it of­fers warmth only to lib­eral Democrats, while con­ser­va­tive Repub­li­cans are left to shiver in the dark.
