Charge of bias is hollow

Recent letters to the editor accusing The Star of bias ring hollow to me. After all, the editorial page regularly runs columns by Republican Representative Dan Newhouse and conservative business leaders.
Editorial pages are for everyone to express their opinions — including the publisher of The Star. Opinions as to who was the “best” or “worst” President are as varied as there are presidents, and have been around for all 246 years of the republic. All should be respected for what they are — opinions. It’s history that will make the final determination.
Loyalty to political leaders is admirable to a point, but it’s important to remember - they are politicians. Politicians come and go, and they can take care of themselves. It’s the country that’s important.
