One-sided coverage

I served in the Air Force for 21 years and did tours in several conflicts, including Southeast Asia.
It's a shame that The Sun can give all the coverage it did to Cindy Sheehan and her group - as well as articles about the group from Gainesville that went up to participate in the anti-war protest - but no coverage of the others who went up to Washington, D.C., in support of President Bush.
Most news outlets try to remain non-biased and report both sides of the news events as they happen, but not one word was printed about the folks who were in D.C. in support of President Bush and what he is trying to accomplish.
I know that The Sun is an affiliate of The New York Times, but I would like to also think that at the local level (Gainesville), you would print both sides of an event and not just a one-sided view. Shamefully, you elect not to.
