Default Daily Sun's "Fair & Balanced" Reporting

in today's Daily Sun on page A-1 above the fold, Mitt Romney coming to TV Monday for appearance at Square in LSL. Story with pictures on first page continued on page A-3.

Same "news" paper, on page C-1 in 2X3" Column on bottom left side, report that Newt Gingrich coming to TV Sunday, no picture. Reports he will be in parking lot near Barnes and Noble.

This is fair and balanced reporting?

It depends on who you are supporting.

And where do you think it would be announced if President Obama visited TV?

Since Newt slapped John King he is going to have a tough time with the press/media.

Thought the editor/owner's opinions appear on the Editorial page.

It has been said many times and worth repeating: The Daily Sun is not a newspaper. It is an advertising vehicle for the developer.

If you live here, you must accept on some level that the newspaper reflects the political views of the developer who owns The Daily Sun. That is fine if you agree with those views and not so fine if you don't. Every newspaper I have read has a political slant.

It is what it is.

Just about every newspaper is slanted towards one party or another.

The Morses donated $500,000.00 to the Romney PAC.

"(A new Super PAC created to support Mitt Romney raised $12.2 million in the first half of the year entirely from high-dollar contributors and spent just over $22,000, according to a report filed with the FEC.)

Renee Morse, who owns the Florida mega-retirement community, The Villages, gave $250,000 and the company matched that amount
