I have long considered The Star my “hometown newspaper.” However, I won’t be able to do that any longer because The Star does not present an unbiased viewpoint to readers.
The newspaper has become riddled with articles that support the left and ignore the right. I come to this conclusion after reading two articles in particular: a May 24 editorial, “Courting Controversy: Once again, Roy Moore finds himself in unflattering situation,” and a May 29 column by The Washington Post’s Eugene Robinson that lauded President Obama’s “achievements” and stated that everything Gov. Mitt Romney says is a lie.
Regardless of whose opinion this is, it appeared in The Star and sported a picture of the author. This leads readers to assume that the author works for The Star and the opinions expressed in that article are those of the editorial staff at The Star. Alabama is a state of conservatives. (Is that a bad word now?) We do not support removing God from our schools (or off of our welcome signs). We do not support President Obama (Calhoun County overwhelmingly voted against Obama in 2008). Therefore, we do not support a newspaper that rallies behind these people or these ideals. I’m shocked! Simply shocked!
