'Chronicle' Not Interested in 'Objective' Reporting

RECEIVED Tue., Dec. 9, 2003

The story about Planned Parenthood was interesting for the fact that the opponent of this project was routinely vilified in the article as a right-wing puritan ["Women Dig In," News, Dec. 5].
   Can you maybe, just maybe try for a bit of objective reporting? Would you have called say Martin Luther King a "rabble rousing nigger" or other such nonsense? I doubt it, yet it is OK to make a caricature and launch thinly veiled attacks against someone who believes in the sanctity of life. Scary the standards by which you "reported" this story.
   Maybe I made an error. Maybe, just maybe, that story was really on the op-ed page. Just not sure.
