Political Death Blow for Seattle Times?

As much as the Seattle Times would wish the compassionate clemency given cop-killer Maurice Clemmons by former governor Mike Huckabee would be, as it wrote: ( A) "Political death blow for Huckabee?"  [http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/localnews/2010392864_huckfallout01.html] it might more likley be one of continuing death blows for the far-left and failing Seattle Times.  These two articles take up the highly-read entire first inside right-hand page A 3 of today's Times, December 1, 2009 (the page's headline article is: "Persuasive appeal helped Clemmons win clemency" which includes a giant copy of Huckabee's signed proclamation.[http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/localnews/2010392867_shootingclemency01m.html].  I venture to say that if it was a Democratic governor it'd get maybe a paragraph.  Maybe.  The factual Wall Street Journal is the number one newspaper in the country and the likes of the New York Times, Washington Post et. al. are losing readers and dropping like flies.   These liberal rags don't believe that their readers can handle factual information, espedcially that which might cast a dark light on liberals and liberal policies.  So rather than give their readers a chance to gain knowledge, they print biased garbage like the above-mentioned articles.  Shows the contempt these papers and liberals in general have for the "masses"...us the citizens, voters and readers in the United States of America.

My response is a Letter to the Editor of the Seattle Times:

Seattle Times, your coverage of Huckabee's "fault" for the former governor's clemency ofinsane murderer, even obliquely, is dispicable. You Liberals want teens who've been convicted of crimes to be released, but when they are and commit some more crimes, you express anger, outrage and then try to blame others. The poor boy was only 17 when I am sure poverty and the "wrong crowd" forced him to steal a purse and hit a woman. That boy was sent to prison for 35 years. Without the light of what he's done that sentence looks like discrimination for a poor black kid in Arkansas. And if Maurice Clemmons wouldn't have brutally and cold-bloodedly killed four people, I believe that virtually every Democrat and liberal would agree that 35 years was unfair and discriminatory for the kid and that to let him out was fair. But Clemmons did kill and now this newspaper paints the fault on former Gov. Mike Huckabee, a Republican, by the way, with a full page anti-Huckabee spread today (page A 3) and the same blame game yesterday and, I think, Sunday. At least Huckabee had the courage to stand up in national television and take responsibility like a man.
