Need balance in cartoons


The Cullman Times

CULLMAN — Need balance in cartoons

For the past few months, I’ve seen you post one liberal political cartoon after another that puts the conservative candidates in a negative light.

The one day of Romney offended me and probably did the same to every conservative in this city and county. I’ve never once seen you print a negative cartoon of Obama. Why? Can you not be fair and balanced? If not, just print a full page photo of Obama every day on the front page to make sure that everyone knows which side you support?

I think you need to be reminded that this city and county voted Republican in the last election as well as in the last Presidential election. You simply are not representing the people who buy your paper and pay your staff, including yourself, when you put cartoons like the one today in your paper.
