Letters to the Editor

Letter: One-sided letter

To the Editor:

In his April 5 letter, William Parrot decries the current social condition in America and says ... “America has become the laughingstock of the world. ...” Mr. Parrot then refers to the media as “an out-of-control, intellectually bankrupt media obsessed with Oval tweets and make-believe Russian election fraud.”  

Mr. Parrot then goes on to write, “Perhaps the genius of media capitalism ultimately will cleanse our critical airways of the mindless drivel, returning that arcane dinosaur known as objective journalism to its rightful place amongst reputable career aspirations.”

Wow, I didn’t realize that conditions are this bad in America. Let me tell you what I suspect is the real message in Mr. Parrot’s letter. He would like the so-called liberal media replaced by FOX, The Washington Times, the Drudge Report, The Weekly Standard, the Wall Street Journal, the National Review, Citizens United, Rush Limbaugh and the many other conservative news outlets.

That is a great idea if one likes to hear only one point of view.
