Sun wrong to promote Al Jazeera

Based on The Sun's unprecedented pre-launch promotion for Al Jazeera ("The new news team," Aug. 4) there can't possibly be any doubt whatsoever that The Sun is joined at the hip with anti-American conspirators whose goal is "fundamentally transforming the United States of America."

Unfortunately, I feel far too many readers of The Sun are unaware that the person named in The Sun article as a principal provider of funds for Al Jazeera — the emir of Qatar, Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa al Thani — earlier this year blamed Israel for the turmoil in the Arab world that threatens to plunge the entire region into war.

I also understand that the Sheikh is aligned with the Muslim Brotherhood, the radical Hamas-controlled government in Gaza, and rebel forces in Syria.

Expecting Al Jazeera to provide unbiased journalism on TV is like expecting The Sun to provide unbiased journalism in print.

    Spare us the dancing on the grave of the Red Line by those who have no right to call it a boondoggle ("Red Line was a boondoggle," June 30). We'll never know if it was or not since it won't be built in my lifetime. Certainly, I can't foresee any of Baltimore's myriad social problems improving without...

    Ban smokeless tobacco from baseball

    It is time for Major League Baseball to take a stand and ban smokeless tobacco, period. It is a foul, disgusting and dangerous addiction. It's never talked about until you hear of a player or former player who is diagnosed with mouth cancer or a player such as Tony Gwynn dies from the disease (...

    EPA mercury ruling was even-handed

    The Sun's article on mercury limits incorrectly asserts that the U.S. Supreme Court split on ideological grounds ("Justices rule against EPA power plant mercury limits," June 29). On the contrary, the Supreme Court split was one between original intent, honest interpretations of the Constitution...
