Letter to the Editor

Support for opinions on both sides

Sunday, August 19, 2018

To the Editor:

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Times Gazette for the outstanding job it is doing in the Opinion page. I look forward to reading the insightful national columnists that appear there, even though some of them are not of the same political persuasion as I am.

I have noticed recently the T-G is coming under fire for printing editorials that some people in the community disagree with. The trademark of a good newspaper is the willingness to present both sides of an issue, so that its readers can develop their own opinions. A newspaper that only gives one viewpoint consistently, either left or right, in an effort to please the majority of its readers, is actually doing the community a disservice.

The fact that some of the columnists in the Opinion page don't speak glowingly about Donald Trump should not make people angry at the T-G, unless they are so closed-minded they insist on seeing only one side of every issue. If they are so fanatical about their reality-show hero that they can't bear hearing a negative word about their emperor, they should move to Russia. I'm sure Putin and his Puppet would be happy to accommodate them.

Bill Davis,

  • Mr. Davis I agree with you but the problem is the people who have been speaking up and out for our President has been under fire to be silenced. It's funny to me the more the common sensical people speak out the ignorant the other side becomes. The left has been shoving crap down the throats of Americans for at least the past 8 years with the help of Osama-siah Hussein. I will agree wholeheartedly people hear opinions and will listen intensely but they will not accept the truth. Nobody will ever admit that Killary got her tail handed to her and Donald Trump's totally disgraced the Dumbocratic party. I once thought I was a Democrat but that party wants you and I to be totally dependent on the government but there are rights and bills that say the opposite. We should want TRUTH and it will set us free but the question is do we really want to be free or do we want the loving caring big government making all of our decisions. Oh and as far as Putin goes say what you will but he has more integrity and leadership skills than Osama Hussein has in his whole body.
