In the 18 months I've been writing this blog I've tried various ways to convince people I have no political bias. But maybe I'm just not thinking big enough:
That's Bellingham Herald reporter Sam Taylor. He posted the photo on his blog with this caption:
I've been accused of being a liberal and a right-winger during the course of my journalism career, and on this very blog (and in e-mail). It appears that the reason why people come to such conclusions is because I'm just not reporting their perspective, I'm trying to cover all sides. Some people just can't seem to accept that there are other viewpoints than theirs. Sure, yours might be correct, but does that mean that nobody else should be covered?
Taylor's gun post attracted attention of media watchers across the country. Editor & Publisher, has a story up about it this morning.
Taylor told E&P today that he posted the photo and the comment about it making him appear as a right-winger in an effort to show that it is wrong to label him or anyone a liberal or conservative based on appearance. "People will look at it and try to peg me in some hole," he told E&P. "Looking at someone, you cannot just do that. I thought people were going out of their way to try and peg me."
