Star Tribune biased

To the editor:

If you read the Star Tribune they may not be aware of how biased it is. I am only a casual observer of Minnesota politics. However I notice that a couple of days ago they did an article on how much money pro traditional marriage groups are spending on marriage. As a casual observer I would have thought the pro traditional marriage group was spending all this money to brainwash Minnesotans into believing in the value of traditional marriage. Turns out they are actually outspent by gay marriage groups 4 to 1.

Funny we never see a story regarding how much gay marriage groups spend in the Tribune. The only time we do see it is in a report comparing both sides.

Moreover, when the Star Tribune does talk about Minnesota for Marriage, the pro maintain traditional marriage group, they cite the fact that 70 percent of money comes from two groups -The Minnesota Catholic Conference Marriage Defense Fund and the Minnesota Family Council Marriage Protection Fund, as though theses two organizations are BIG SPECIAL INTEREST GROUPS. In fact they are groups funded by many individual donations.

The impression I believe the Star Tribune would like to leave the reader with is that the pro traditional marriage group is made of big money and the pro gay marriage group is individual donations. That would be the exact opposite of the truth.
