Investment Business Daily, or IBD, is devoted to investment facts and teaching you how to buy stocks and mutual funds. For that purpose, it does a fine job. Naturally you would expect a financial publication to have a Republican slant in its opinion section. This publication, in our opinion, is for all practical purposes, devoid of any practical level of being unbiased in favor of the Republican viewpoint. For this reason, it is our feeling that the opinion section of this newspaper, is an embarrassment to the field of journalism and the notion that a news vehicle try to provide a balanced viewpoint. The opinion section allegedly tarnishes the sum total score for this paper. For investment information we recommend this paper strongly. The opinion section is best used for bird cage liner or fish wrap.
