Endorsement by default

Once again, The Sun endorses its favored candidate, U.S. Sen. Ben Cardin, by refusing to cover any of the other contenders in the race. The rest of us can just go pound sand.

In 2010, The Sun tossed us underdogs a bone in the form of an online blog but no print coverage. This year, it's an equally worthless online election guide.

So much for fairness and participatory democracy. With no surprises left, The Sun will endorse Senator Cardin over the GOP nominee again this fall, even if Mr. Cardin drops dead in the meantime.

Having read The Sun daily since 1968, I can say with some certainty that since then it has degenerated into the biased journal it is today. I'm sorry that I went to Vietnam and got shot at to defend the elitist editors and reporters of The Baltimore Sun.
