It's simply ridiculous for Jack Kinstlinger to suggest that he was turned off to the Tea Party movement after attending one event ("Tea party tries to sound reasonable," Readers respond, April 15). I've read many of Mr. Kinstlinger's letters in the past; he is a devout tax and spend liberal, and it's incomprehensible that he would go to a tea party rally with an open mind. Also telling is the knee-jerk liberal reaction displayed by Mr. Kinstlinger when he likens the tea party movement to the Ku Klux Klan and Aryan nation.

Will someone please explain why former Obama cabinet members like Leon Panetta and Hillary Clinton feel they have tell the world about things that make him look incompetent? How does this do anything to improve on the image of our country around the world, and why does this kind of behavior have to occur just after such people quit or resign? Why can't they at least wait until the president is out of office, as officials formerly did? A similar problem afflicted President George W. Bush, where he was made to look like the village idiot by the liberal media.

ARLINGTON, Va. - The resignation of two top editors at The New York Times last week was the journalistic equivalent of bringing down a president of the United States. But the initial reaction from inside the journalism establishment does not augur well for any lessons that it should learn from this affair. The New York Times will investigate, study and examine what happened, but it is unlikely the newspaper will reach the right conclusions. The problem for the Times and for much of "mainstream journalism" is that large numbers of people no longer trust what they read (or see on the broadcast networks)

As an Army officer in the late 1960s, I was trained in riot control, responding to the race riots in Washington, D.C. after the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. and just before my departure to Vietnam. I have a simple solution. You see the use of tear gas frequently. Did you know that you can mix with tear gas an element called DM, which is a vomiting agent? No need for bullets. No need for heavy armament. Just deploy a few canisters of a mixture of CS and DM. No one will die, but it won't be a pretty sight.

The murder trial of Kermit Gosnell, a Philadelphia abortion provider, entered its fifth week today riding a peculiar media firestorm. The focus of much attention in recent days was not on Dr. Gosnell, who is charged in the death of seven babies and an adult patient who died of an overdose, but on a claim that the trial is getting modest coverage in the national media - allegedly because of a liberal bias. Whether sufficient coverage has been given to the trial we would leave for others to judge.

I have a bet with a friend that if President Obama wins re-election in the Electoral College but loses the popular vote, all the raging against the Electoral College in the print and broadcast media will immediately cease. Within three months, you won't hear a peep about the Electoral College system. Wanna bet? Douglas B. Hermann, Parkville

INTRIGUED by all the right-wing hoo-haw about the "liberal media," I began to wonder who these devilishly elusive people are who have such tight control over everything I read, listen to and view; who influence my life without my even being aware of it?As a lifelong news junkie absorbed in all things political, I grew more and more curious about this insidious influence that, we are warned, is more dangerous and pervasive than kudzu or killer bees.So I decided to conduct a survey, unscientific to be sure, but probably no more so than those done by pollsters who slant their questions to elicit the responses desired.

Commentator Thomas F. Schaller and the other Democrats in the liberal media blame the Republicans for the government shutdown ( "Government shutdown is the Republicans' fault - period," Oct. 1). The truth is that it was the Democrats who caused the shutdown. Democrats in the Senate and the White House said "we will not negotiate. " To them, the shutdown was preferable to finding a compromise with House Republicans, especially if they could blame the Republicans, which they did with the help of the liberal media.

I would say The Sun's coverage of accused murderer Kermit Gosnell is awful but there wasn't any until recently ("Kermit Gosnell and the 'liberal media,'" April 16). But, of course, this comes from a paper that charges $1.50 at the newsstand and can't get sports scores in after 9:30 at night. And, yes I do subscribe (since the News American folded). And, you talk about "legitimate clinics?" Oh, are those "safe abortion clinics?" Ken Hess, Pasadena

Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling may be a lot of things, probably negative to most people, but first and foremost he is a citizen of the United States. If a person is engaged in an intimate or personal conversation, he would presume that it is one of a private nature. I guess the liberal media doesn't respect First Amendment rights! They have taken to this story like lions to the Christians! The left wing often explains freedom of speech as "protection of words that most find abhorrent"; where are they on this one?

The liberal media are not telling Americans the truth about the state of the country's economy. Over 70 percent of Americans believe the economy is still in bad shape, despite the stock market's comeback. While the U.S. Department of Labor reports that the official government unemployment rate is around 7 percent, the real unemployment rate is well into double digits. The country has a record number of disability cases that are not being counted, as well as millions of people who have stopped looking for work and are not counted as unemployed.

"Why do they seem so determined to also make it racial?" So asks Joy-Ann Reid, the managing editor of The Grio, a web magazine owned by NBC News whose mission is to "focus on news and events that have a unique interest and/or pronounced impact within the national African Americans audience. " The "they" in question are conservatives and journalists asking, among other things, why President Barack Obama hasn't inserted himself into this case the way he did in the Trayvon Martin tragedy.

As I was driving to work today, I found myself behind a fellow motorist, another middle-aged white guy with eyeglasses, both of us driving General Motors products. His Lumina displayed his allegiances with bumper stickers, two of which caught my eye: "I DON'T BELIEVE THE LIBERAL MEDIA" and "ILLEGAL ALIENS ARE NOT IMMIGRANTS / THEY ARE CRIMINALS. "* They have some linguistic interest.  Take the "illegal alien" sticker. By just about any commonly understood definition, the more or less 11 million people in this country illegally are immigrants.

Letter writer Michael Baseman criticizes another reader who says that liberal media is intolerant ("We can't change Ben Carson's view," April 20). He goes on to suggest that a logical response to Dr. Carson's statements would be useless and implies that he would refuse to forgive someone who has publicly and humbly apologized. Finally, he suggests it would be a waste of time to state his opinion to someone who does not agree with him. Is this not itself the definition of intolerance?

In response to the recent article by Kim Geiger ("Limbaugh stands by words in clash on contraceptives," March 3), I would just say that if it necessitates extreme commentary to identify and expose the absurd demands of Sandra Fluke, than so be it! Instead of focusing on the content of Ms. Fluke's demands, the Democrats and their liberal media cohorts are slamming Rush Limbaugh and painting the Republicans as anti-women. This is typical rhetoric of the left, using diversionary tactics to spin and distort facts for political gain!

Regarding your recent editorial on the murder trial of Philadelphia abortion provider Kermit Gosnell, we are not all stupid ("Kermit Gosnell and the 'liberal media,'" April 16). Sean Hannity is a conservative and he admits it. But The Sun editorial board is liberal, and doesn't admit it. That is the main difference between the two sides: Most conservatives admit they are, and most liberals deny they are. I heard about the Gosnell case months ago, and I am sure it was not in The Sun. Fox at least tries to let both sides have a say, but MSNBC doesn't.

I am shocked and saddened that a newspaper would classify the horrific acts that this man has been accused of doing as an example of "medical malpractice, lax government regulation and dearth of decent health care" ("Kermit Gosnell and the 'liberal media,'" April 16). Really, that's all you can say? You think that is what the "heart of the case" is here? Not the lives of the unborn? What is at the heart of the case is murder plain and simple, and none of the other things you listed concern me one whit when talking about the murder of innocent children.
