In the face of the economic disaster we are experiencing in the USA as a result of Liberal policies in Washington it must be difficult for the Alpena News to maintain a balanced news and editorial position. Mr. Smith from Ossineke accuses the paper of being ultra-conservative when in reality they are only printing stories that inform us of what is really happening. Mr. Smith wants a right/left balance. So what he expects is that The News write something that makes it look as if Americans approve of the policies of the left. The News could say America loves Obamacare, the stimulus was successful, religious leaders are not feeling the pressure of a new definition of religion, green energy is saving American jobs, plans to cut the deficit have been successful and Obama alone has gotten America back to work.
