Where was Horning in candidate story?

November 3, 2008
Regarding "Contrasting candidates" in the Oct. 20 edition, spread over two pages was the predominance of your viewpoint of [gubernatorial candidates Republican Mitch] Daniels and [Democrat Jill Long] Thompson; complete with a satirical cartoon of each.

Out of 50 paragraphs, you mentioned only five for [Libertarian candidate] Andy Horning. If the debate commission can offer three debates with equal time and exposure, why can't you also be fair and balanced?

If you really want to be unfair, you should have given more space to the underdog who does not enjoy the millions of dollars to buy an election. Your lack of fairly contrasting all three does your readers a disservice.
