Letter: Forum is not fair, balanced

Sunday, Aug. 12, I was eager to read about Romney’s vice president pick in The Forum, and what did I find? I see the top half of the front page is an article about a Concordia student’s journey from a man to a woman. The article I was looking for was a 3-inch by 6-inch section at the bottom of the front page. The article was mostly a negative viewpoint of Paul Ryan’s budget and Medicare plan.

Fact check: Medicare funds will be exhausted by 2024. Fact check: Paul Ryan’s plan will not and Medicare will not cost seniors $6,000 and will not affect anyone 55 years and older. In parentheses is Whopper 2011.

Ryan has a plan. Where is President Obama and the Democrats’ plan, or is this going to be another “you won’t know what’s in it until you elect me again”? It’s easier to criticize others than to come up with their own plan.

It’s time for The Forum to be fair and balanced, or it’s time for me to look for a new source of news.
