I was appalled by the blatenly biased covering of the John Hall town Hall. You led with Many Residents upset over Universal Healthcare as if most people there were against Healthcare.

I was there and it wasn't true. To judge by the clapping alone, there were as many if not more upset at the loss of a public option. The only difference was that those against felt free to talk over both representative John Hall and their fellow citizens.

Additionally, you feature a young woman speaking out against healthcare without also mentioning that she is one of those who don't even believe Obama is a citizen. To feature one with an irrational bias without mentioning that, shows you are taking sides.

Journalists are not supposed to do that. There were many residents of Orange county of all ages and ethnicities who support a public health option. Several tried to hold democrats feet to the fire.

Again, I am thoughouly disgusted by this gross misrepresentation of the facts.
