I have been a Tribune subscriber for 40 years. The newspaper's political bias hasn't varied in all that time, and has been consistently obvious with the unbalanced representation of syndicated columnists and in the way the editorials parrot the paper's one-sided viewpoints. Now it seems the Trib has found another way to promote its partiality - through the guest columnists.
I considered applying to become a guest columnist with the thought that it would be fun to write about local events, music, books, and other general items of community interest. Now that I see how the writers have changed focus I realize I would never have passed the political test anyway.
Despite the theme, this letter will not end with the demand to "cancel my subscription." I still prefer the newspaper over online sources for local, national, and world news, and I enjoy the veterans, Civil War, and history articles. And the comics, other than the one about the duck, are still funny, though not quite as comical as the editorial page declaration "The Tribune Chronicle is a politically independent newspaper."
