Sound off for Feb. 3, 2013
Last week, Glen Faison wrote a column about perceptions and spin in presenting the news.
Here are some of the comments on our website:
- Fair enough, but I would like to remind those who frequent this site that the DR opinion page is heavily tilted to the right and that none of those cartoons or articles ever mention the progressive side of the story and DR management never, ever feels the compelling need to remind the readers that there is another side, usually the truthful side, that remains untold
- I am always skeptical of the comparisons between a local paper and balanced news. I for one never rely upon a singular medium to get my information.
- Seems more to me that you are picking the low lying fruit, to please the master. Mike (Kirchubel) does have a little fun with his columns, but the foundation of is words are rock solid.
- Good luck trying to reason liberals on this site. Their reactions and responses tend to be more robotic (Pavlovian?) than reasoning, particularly if you dare to disagree with one of them. I think the DR does a good job of maintaining balance between the left and the right on the political spectrum.
