Voice of the People: Writers lean to the right

January 6, 2019

You (Daily Journal reporter David Giuliani) wrote that you reviewed articles from the Illinois News Service and they seem balanced to you.

You are not able to judge that balance because you have a very right-wing perspective. All of the Daily Journal writers and editors have the same far-right point of view. What you and your colleagues think of as “normal” is viewed from a very narrow window.

It’s very much like the Fox News tagline of “Fair and Balanced.” They don’t even try to be fair but they think it sounds good to say so.

Fortunately for all of us, the real truth eventually emerges (fact check Donald Trump’s recent statements on military pay raises, as one example).

All the attempts by news organizations to shape policy and opinion are very weak compared to the relentless movement of social and economic progress.
