Apparently, you do not believe your readers can be trusted to make up their own minds about controversial issues. I am not interested in a publication that cannot present both sides of an issue and let its readers exercise their own wisdom and judgment.

I am not committed to either side of the controversy, but would like more information before choosing sides. Your biased treatment leads me to think that you must be hiding something that would weaken your case.
