  • To the editor
    Well, another election cycle has come and gone and as usual the majority of the reporting by the main-stream media was tilted toward the Democratic candidates.  We have grown accustomed to this and weren’t really surprised, only this time the journalists jumped into the Democratic political tank in plain view. It wasn’t their usual stealth operation.  Of course now that the elections are over, they plan on becoming “honest and balanced again. As far as I’m concerned, they finally used up the last bit of credibility they had left. Trust is easy to lose and very difficult to ever get back, but they don’t seem to care.  If we can’t trust them to report truthfully when covering one of the most important events in our nation, which is when we select the political leaders to run our government, how can we believe anything else they report on. It doesn’t make any difference whether you see, hear, or read it, it is all suspect.  It is a sad day for our country when you finally realize the journalistic institutions we grew up respecting and depending on aren’t there anymore.
