Journal shows bias every week

PUBLISHED: 16:39 30 October 2008 | UPDATED: 09:54 10 June 2010

Can we assume that, as the editor has not refuted the suggestion he supports the proposed ASDA development on the edge of the Exe Estuary (Howard Samuel s letter, October 23), he is in favour, as has been illustrated with the bias every week with the coverage of this issue?

Can we assume that, as the editor has not refuted the suggestion he supports the proposed ASDA development on the edge of the Exe Estuary (Howard Samuel's letter, October 23), he is in favour, as has been illustrated with the bias every week with the coverage of this issue?

And how does this hold up with a local paper which is supposedly representative of its residents' views.

I think we need to be told, and why this is the case.

EDITOR'S NOTE: it is not a good idea to make assumptions, no matter what the subject. It is a newspaper's role to present articles and letters of all shades of opinion - no matter what the topic.

That is exactly what we have done with the ASDA proposals - and why we are publishing your letter.

We have published almost everything which has been sent to us by readers and the various interested parties, with the exception of material which makes unwarranted personal attacks.

You are welcome to your opinions, but please be aware there will be some people in the town who are in favour of ASDA as well as those who are against. We try to be fair to everyone by giving an arena for debate. We will not be apologising for publishing pro-ASDA letters etc - even if we offend some readers by doing so. Let's keep to the main subject, please.
