Re: Trump’s train wreck express (Rickter Scale, May 17)
I have been an enthusiastic reader of your paper since 1978 and frankly find it hard to grasp why you would print the partisan leftist U.S. propaganda as espoused in Rick Steibels’ article.
That missive was devoid of original thought.
I spend much time in the U.S. and have the opportunity while there to hear the opinions expressed by the people affected by this directly.
The media, most especially the media we up here have access to, are absolutely not reflecting the views of the “man on the street.”
Most of the so-called news outlets are vehicles of the previously entrenched Democratic party, virtually their propaganda arm, and are therefore the baleful crying out of a diminished party steadily losing power.
I do not write this to disseminate personal political views, but instead to ask you to please exercise restraint when lining up on one side or another with the political bias of another country, that being both ineffectual and redundant.
To disrespect any elected official is to disrespect those who voted for him or her in any case.
I hope you will return to more of the local, friendly, and homey format that I look forward to every week.
