Can The Sun deliver the news without the views?

A reader complains that rather than dissecting President Obama's call on Congress to pass a jobs bill, the Sun's editorial jumped all over the GOP for being uncooperative, even though Republicans have said there may be some useful features in the president's plan

Once again you have shown your left-leaning views in the editorial "Let them eat tax cuts" (Sept. 12).

Rather than dissecting President Obama's call on Congress to pass a jobs bill and discussing the issue fairly, you jump all over the GOP, which has said there may be some redeeming features to it.

In listening to President Obama's speech in Richmond, it sounded to me more like a re-election campaign than a jobs speech.

How can I get The Sun delivered without your views in it?
