Who says The Sun has to cheerlead for Gov. Hogan?

Letter writer Charlie Stevens ("The Sun ignores the will of the voters," Feb. 11) is unclear on the difference between journalism and government. He seems to think that the election of a Republican governor mandates the complete overhaul of the editorial page into a cheering section for Larry Hogan. Presumably, any questions The Sun or others may have about his policies are to be swept under the rug because "the voters have spoken." By this logic, Fox News and the New York Post should have been promoting twice-elected President Barack Obama's agenda for the last six years.

Concerning the "overwhelming margin" Mr. Hogan was given in November: while he did beat Anthony Brown decisively, the fact that he won the votes of only about 19 percent of the Maryland electorate should dissuade him or his supporters from claiming a mandate from the voters.
