Letter: Why is The Forum paying Port to write political advertising?

Since Sept. 1, Rob Port has written five opinion pieces disparaging Sen. Heidi Heitkamp. That's more than one every two days. On Sept. 1st there were 2 articles. By contrast there were zero articles from paid contributors that even mentioned Sen. John Hoeven or Rep. Kevin Cramer.

Why is the newspaper paying Port for writing political advertising? And why do they not employ someone to balance the scales?
