I have a problem with people that don’t agree with a particular point of view saying that they are dropping their subscription to The Herald. Those same people call for boycotts, or swear they will never shop at a certain store cause they disagree with something they did. This accomplishes nothing. Do they really think they are hurting The Herald or a store because they quit buying from them? I guess they think The Herald will go out of business because they quit buying the paper.
I write to the Herald regularly, and I’m a staunch conservative and Republican and they print my letters. Not all, because I sometimes send more a month than they allow. Rather than quit The Herald, write about your side of things to the letter section and see if its printed. I have been doing this for years, starting with the Shelton Journal. I have a book full of letters; yes, I keep them all. How are we going to get our conservative or liberal ideas out there if we just quit. That’s what is happening now and some even quit voting. Not a good idea, get out there be outspoken and share your ideas.
Today I see another letter chiding Fox News. Accusing Fox of half truths, distortion and outright lies, yet he cites no specific articles that they are lying about. I am willing to bet he doesn’t even watch Fox, so in that case doesn’t know what he is talking about. If they are so bad, how is it they have the highest rating of any cable news station? Bill O’Reilly beating all competitors in ratings for over 17 years. If you are going to accuse someone of lying, please cite some examples. I have to admit I watch Fox more than other cable news stations. I have a hard time watching shows like Al Sharpton, The Ed show or Rachel Maddow.
