One of the worst big newspapers in New England. Despite being the primary periodical for the liberal city of Lowell, Massachusetts, the very conservative Op-Ed page of the Sun is like something one would see in a southern small-town newspaper. It regularly publishes conservative letters to the editor whose authors are barely literate, and endorsed George W. Bush for reelection in 2004. In addition, its main columnist--Dan Phelps--is a terrible writer whose columns are laced with pedestrian writing and mind-boggling non sequiturs.
