Bias by Omission?

Hello there,

In your recent cover story on the Chicago protest on LSD [April 4] you fell into the ranks of the media majority. Pages and pages of what happened at the protest (organization, police, etc), but no information on why so many protested--except for stating that they were "antiwar" and, ironically, needed to get their message heard. Your article was just another example of the media "balancing" their coverage but not correctly.

Unfortunately most uninformed readers think "antiwar" protesters are just unruly troublemakers. Why? Because their case is not being heard in the largely "prowar" media and in articles like your cover story. Please try to incorporate fair, unbiased reporting in the future.
