  •   carriegamp I see only one color on these front pages. Our city is at the center of controversy because of the dichotomy that exists within Baltimore. To fairly cover the events, you should have provided equal coverage and attention to opinions and points of view of a more diverse crowd in Baltimore. Citizens, Public Servants, etc. 3w
