Media: Fair or Foul?

Regarding the editorial "Media: Fair or Foul?," Oct. 29: Because I know that reporters are people and that good reporting requires a point of view, I expect and tolerate a certain level of bias in reporting the news. When reporting exceeds that level, however, I give the benefit of the doubt to the person, idea, or thing being flogged.

I know that as a person I have my own viewpoint. I receive the news from a variety of sources. It is only when most reporters agree at the same time that I find it impossible to learn all of the sides of the story.

Could it be that public frustration is not so much with bias as with misunderstanding? J. Willits Lane, Tallahassee, Fla.
