Our take: The Washington Post tackles emails from its readership about being too one-sided on the presidential candidates. Patrick B. Pexton, from The Washington Post writes his response:
"Republicans think the news media are being too easy on Barack Obama. In fact, 60 percent of them say so, a figure that's up from 55 percent four years ago, when Obama ran against Sen. John McCain. That's the conclusion of a poll conducted Sept. 20-23 by the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press.
This finding reflects the e-mail I receive from people who identify themselves as Republicans and conservatives, and even from some independents and Democrats, who say The Post is too easy on Obama."
