Anyone Else Sick of the Outrageous Direction of "The Valley" Newspaper?

After reading the May 2013 issue of The Valley newspaper and the Editor's take on the Boston Bombings (I'm sure if it were him without appendages his rantings on the media coverage and our rights would be vastly different!), along with the "Guest Editorial" titled "An American Holocaust is Coming" by "A Sad American" (c'mon, "Anonymous"? Hasn't the Editor ranted in the past about anonymous comments from people and how cowardly they are for not naming themselves?! Well here's one more...), I am now totally turned off to this "newspaper." I am all for free speech which is why if it is a real newspaper it would include those feedback letters from readers to the editor to get both sides of the topics in our community! The Editor's use of this media outlet to get out his outrageous political rants and hypocritical opinions are going to put this fish-wrapper of a paper out of business!

Couldn't really say as I've never read it. If you don't agree with it or like it, do the same....freedom of choice.

Uh, yeah! I just wanted to know if anyone who actually reads it had opinions...

Maybe if someone is bold enough to report something you think is outrageous, do your own research and counter his position. I would bet though that there are overwhelming facts that support his position. The truth is around the corner...not straight in front of you.

Think you need to reread the original post - that's what I'm saying. He doesn't use anyone else's opinion but his! I know several people including myself that have researched and written to The Valley with no response or inclusion. Again, freedom of speech is grand, but you need both sides if you want to be taken seriously.

Miffed, you are doing what you are accusing The Valley of doing. Don't see your real name here while you are spouting off about something you know nothing about. I know people at that paper, they do not care about balance, they care about truth, too bad if the truth pisses you off. It is a free paper, if you don't like it, don't read it, and don't slink around in here "without your real name" bitching about something just because you don't agree. Last I heard they were covering much more territory than any of the local daily's. And you do NOT need both sides of anything, all you need is the truth, something you are incapable of understanding.
