Herald’s left-leaning bias too much to bear

I am getting weary. The Herald’s left-leaning bias is getting almost too much to bear. For years I have enjoyed reading The Herald each morning; for many years with a newspaper, and now digitally. But in the last couple of years it seems every headline relating to the presidential campaign and election is left leaning. Especially the way headlines are worded; take a look sometime. It seems very apparent to me. Not to mention the number of left-leaning opinion columnists.

I am not sure how much more I can take of The Herald’s consistently liberal bent. My wife wonders why I still subscribe; and now I am beginning to wonder why, too. Oh, for journalism that is unbiased, pure reporting. It seems that The Herald is unfortunately too far gone for that.
