One Sided Reporting

Our hometown paper, The Huntsville Times, has an article about an area that is gentrifying. This is a good thing. One of the issues there is that the city's biggest homeless shelter, which is a private, non-profit, is in the area. This does good work and we give it money and goods to sell. Our church sends people to volunteer there. The city wants it to move, and is basically forcing it by planning to build a road through it.

The article talks about it as a "problem" only, while not highlighting the other side of the issue. Yes , most people don't want to live near a homeless shelter, but if there is a homeless problem then there needs to be facilities to service them.
