Media bias and the Washington Post

I don't know how much of the Washington Post I see in the on-line version, but this morning it was one police-black victim article, two pro-climate change articles, two same-sex marriage articles, three transgender articles, one anti-Scott Walker article, one Hillary scandal opinion piece (so gentle it was funny), and two Apple stories. Now there were other topics too, like Comcast/FCC, a female comedian, an introduction to left of Hillary candidate, O'Malley, but the bias is stifling. Americans who use only the New York Times or Washington Post and their siblings in the TV news, are really suffering from lack of information they need to make responsible, informed decisions.
