Is KVUE Being Fair?

RECEIVED Sat., Jan. 30, 2010

Dear Editor,
    I became concerned recently when I noticed that KVUE Channel 24, the local ABC affiliate, made such a production out of airing the Republican primary debates for governor on their free TV channel. But apparently they have relegated the Democratic primary debate only to their website and cable channel – not equal coverage!
    I did a little research and couldn't find out much about the possible conservative political agenda of Belo Corp. or its chairman, Robert Decherd. It is a media empire with numerous television and newspaper holdings. Judging from the KVUE website's political stories, they seem biased. I thought local stations had a responsibility to the public to present both sides of the political spectrum equally.
