Pardon me, your bias is showing

The Daily Star

---- — Re: your article dated Thursday, March 14, titled “Mohawk Valley Gunman Kills 4.” The closing paragraph of this story (a single sentence) states “Herkimer is 2 miles from Ilion where a Remington Arms gun plant is a major employer.” In what way is this factoid germane?! Is every employee of this “major employer” implicit in these murders due to the close proximity of their workplace? The implications and allusions in this factoid are staggering.

Another tragedy unfolded today. Another murder, in Clay. This murderer used a knife. I anticipate your coverage of this story to conclude with “Clay is 22 miles from Camillus, where Camillus Cutlery Company is a major employer.” ... If not, then indeed, your bias is showing.
