The City newspaper has always been a liberal rag. This article takes those political views to a new level though. This magazine is largely funded through advertising, and such one sided politics in a big advertisement, leads me to believe all of the businesses advertising share the view of the paper, or they would advertise elsewhere. While I respect businesses freedom to express their political views, this is just poor business practice to advertise in a publication with a clear political agenda. They are very seriously risking alienating almost half of their potential customers. While I will still support the businesses that pay to advertise in this paper, I can imagine many people will not, based on articles such as this. This is going to be a very close race, and in tough econimic times, it could be very costly to a business to lose even a few potential customers due to such blatantly biased "reporting".
