Under a Microscope and With a Grain of Salt

RECEIVED Mon., April 30, 2012

Dear Editor,
    I have always taken heed to the Civics 101 section of the publication, but this week, the bias against GOP presidential candidate Ron Paul has left something to be desired from this publication, and also has me wondering what else is being neglected due to this bias. Last Thursday, April 26, the University of Texas at Austin chapter of Youth for Ron Paul held a free presidential town hall meeting for Dr. Paul at the LBJ Library lawn, which more than 6,000 voters attended. I think, well, at least I hope, that this would qualify as a civics event in your book, as I know it does in mine. I am not entirely upset about the failure to also mention Dr. Paul's lunch with Ron Paul at the Marriott South, as there was a decent donation required to attend the event. I am not going to hold anything published by the Chronicle to be true any longer without further research, as it is blatantly apparent that things are being withheld from the readers in regards to the views of the Chronicle staff. I will continue to read the Chronicle, just under a microscope and with a grain of salt.
Apathetically yours,
Derik Donald
