Gov. William Donald Schaefer has been the subject of many stories this winter. From his penchant for replying in person or by letter to Marylanders who have criticized him, to his decision to go to Kuwait during the legislative session, to his feud with legislators, the governor's actions have been written about. The governor has told editors and others that he thinks the media, including The Evening Sun, have treated him unfairly.
Of 1,502 Evening Sun readers and other callers to SUNDIAL yesterday, 764, or 50 percent, believe that the media have treated Schaefer unfairly, and 738, or 49 percent, said they feel that the media have not treated Schaefer unfairly.
"It's Your Call" represents a sampling of opinions from certain segments of the community, but it is not balanced demographically, as a scientific public opinion poll would be.
