If we can't expect newspaper editors to know blatantly false statements when they see them, why are we paying them at all?

There is no such thing as "neutrality", as one's conception of "neutral" is still the result of one's own bias, or that of others. Nothing and nobody in news is unbiased, but some are far more honest about it than others. Giving a token representation of the "other side's" view doesn't tell us anything meaningful about it (much like this letter). I'd much rather hear both sides clearly articulate their own arguments and leave the deciding to us. Big news outlets stifle discussion by only bringing sound-bites to the table. A more honest thing to do would be to print something from LRT opponents a little more like Ryan's piece, or at least something that's been researched.
