Letters: Fletcher unbalancd in opinion

Reporter Tom Fletcher fails to grasp journalistic balance in column

Tom Fletcher basically accuses BCTF president Susan Lambert of lying when she claimed her union was not consulted about Christy Clark’s latest grandiose vote-getting scheme.

Fletcher goes on to smear BC teachers of “blatant propaganda in the classroom” and students being “’pressed” into service on union picket lines.This represents a new journalistic low even for one as biased as Fletcher. The vast majority of teachers have far more integrity than Fletcher implies.

Perhaps Fletcher’s only legitimate complaint is about the quality of education he has received as evidenced by his failure to grasp journalistic balance. Fletcher needs to prove these allegations or withdraw them.
