Re "Shutdown hurts business" (Letters, Oct. 5): Is there any surprise that all six of the letters to the editor Saturday were pro-Obama/anti-Republican? Furthermore, the letters section was surrounded by editorials and cartoons that featured the same left-tilting sentiment. This on a day when a front-page story ascribed all of the blame and pressure for the shutdown on House Speaker John Boehner.
Really? How about some pressure on King Obama to actually show up to the negotiating table? It certainly won't come from the mainstream media.
Ironically, The Bee really doesn't have to display such overt bias on the Opinion page in order to get its message across. The low-information voters that rely on this kind of one-sided coverage for news never make it past page one.
