Proof of the conservative 'liberal bias' fantasy?
Glenn Beck’s future, and Fox News Channel’s without him Reader A: I must object to your slant. … Glenn was treated badly and handled the situation with dignity. As for your report of the incident, all you have done is report your opinion, not the truth. This is my last day to use yahoo.
