I was very disappointed that you put on your Oct. 16 front page a claim by some Columbia contractor that the 2007 housing failure was caused by Democratic policies (“Some S.C. voters disillusioned by government that doesn’t work”).
You fail to say, or quote someone saying, that at that time the U.S. president had been a Republican for six years. And that in South Carolina the Legislature had been controlled by Republicans more than six years, and the governor’s mansion for four years and 16 of the previous 20 years.
How can this be a balanced way to report what is happening in South Carolina? This person has a right to his opinion, but so do 4.6 million other South Carolinians. Why choose his opinion to lead your front-page article, when he completely ignores those obviously responsible for state and national policies for several years?
