The editor of the Appleton Post Crescent had received calls charging that the paper was biased against President Bush, and moreover, that it never printed any letters supporting him. So the paper responded with an editorial that said, "if you would like to help us 'balance' things out, send us a letter, make a call or punch out an e-mail." In other words, you don't like the letters? Write your own. Executive Editor Andrew Oppman tells Brooke of the contretemps that ensued.
