Reader prefers The Herald to Fox News

I recently had to go to reading the Herald online because it’s getting harder to read newspaper print in my advanced years but I will miss the print edition.

I don’t always agree with opinions or commentaries, but who does? I am an incurable news junkie, I guess, and I appreciate the information you get in a paper that’s hard to find on the “breaking news: on TV.

Obviously, not everybody agrees with what they read in a paper or hear on TV, and it’s certainly your right to criticize, but to take cheap shots like a recent Camano Island letter writer pretty much tells us he’d much prefer his news from good old “fair and balanced” Fox News; lucky for him, for his quarter, he could buy a whole year’s worth of Fox News with that much money.
