I work for the OWH and I am not surprised at this.


it is common knowledge some of its columnists are biased


and have conflict of interest jobs when it comes to some of their reporting


the only real honest columnist I know of at OWH is Mike Kelly



Robert Nelson and Tom Shatel both try to be honest, but every once in a while they slip up.


some of the others at OWH have been not as honest or done stories in a way that is a conflict of intrest,

if you know what I mean

also a couple of the columnists are just down-right jerks
I don't think it is unusual for colunmists to be biased. If I understand this correctly, from my husband, an old newspaper guy: reporting is never supposed to biased or slanted, but columns can be and most of the time are.

Maybe the afternoon edition will be different, you must remember the morning addition is printed at night, and the afternoon well, around 12 and 1 ish so maybe it will have different things, if not, tomorrow probably will.
