Traveller site opinion is biased

IT is not my place to accuse a paper of bias but the debate of the travellers site at Sully does appear to have become one sided with the concerns of the travellers not being printed in this press.
I also felt that there was an element of xenophobia being projected towards the fact that the proposed site would be near certain hospitals, surmising this may create malevolence. How can this predicted without knowing the said peoples first?
I do feel that the cultured shift from a market economy to that of market society has led to becoming embourgeoised, not seeing any longer as a lifestyle choice, but a necessity of social acceptance. Therefore any divergence away from this narrative is seen as being of the 'other' by not being conducive to its social codes.
Should it not be considered that diversity benefits us all with a richer tapestry than the restrained sanitised version we are all heading towards.
