Erik Wemple has been editor for a lot less time than I’ve been reading the paper, but I’ll bet he’s long known what I’ve only just now realized: From Felix Gillette’s unexplained candidate-bashing (“Miss Appropriated,” 6/21) to the Jason Cherkis/Chris Peterson panning of the September protest (“Best of Protest 2002,” 10/4), the Washington City Paper cannot and should not be taken seriously for its coverage of the important issues facing this metropolis. Too many of its writers seem spoiled, bored, out of touch, and much more cynical than their probable ages should allow them to be.

The Washington Post and the Washington Times hide a lot of stories to suit their respective agendas; the City Paper doesn’t even understand what’s going on. I don’t know what’s worse—the biases or the blindness.
