Letter: Views on news slant, Obama and the Constitution

On news slant, Constitution

In The News-Review Thursday, Jan. 17, it chose to use the words “complains about rush to control of guns” in the front page article. Sheriff John Hanlin demonstrated honesty, decency and integrity when he swore to uphold the Constitution of the United States of America.

This obviously shows more knowledge of the Constitution than our President, who apparently suffers the delusion that he is a king, instead of an elected official. You would think Barack Obama, who was allegedly President of the Harvard Law Review, would have a better understanding of the Constitution he swore to uphold. Yet many of his leftist friends feel the Constitution is a fluid document to be changed and some are now calling for it to be abandoned.

This isn’t the first time I have written The News-Review about its obvious left-leaning slant. The last time, it was blamed on the Associated Press.

Since this paper provides news for Douglas County, why can’t it just report the news without injecting its personal political views?
