Dear Campus Times:

It is likely that being in the field of journalism that you have at least heard of “Outfoxed: Rupert Murdoch’s War On Journalism.” I just watched it and our situation seems to be a lot worse than I thought it was. I think it is both appalling and terrifying what Fox News has gotten away with in the last 4 years.Years ago when TV first became main stream, at election time news producers would give each candidate equal time. This does not happen anymore and I think it should be reinstated.I also think that it is unprofessional and counterproductive for news media to take a clear side on an issue. Fox news is most certainly an extreme example of this, but your paper is guilty of the same bias. For example “Campus Times supports candidate X for Student Body President.” Your job as a newspaper is the provide accurate, unbiased information to our University. By your publication, or any publication, taking a side on an election, you are no longer unbiased and hence no longer serving your purpose.Opinion pieces should be allowed in their designated part of the paper, but papers as organizations should not take sides, but rather present accurate, factual information about each candidate.
