Disappointed with newspaper biasPublished 7:59pm Wednesday, January 2, 2013
In the Dec. 30 edition of The Selma Times-Journal, a columnist by the name of James G Smith was allowed space on your opinion page regarding the national debt. In my opinion it was extremely biased, untruthful, and I believe not the type of article that should be given an ounce of consideration.
Some of the ridiculous comments made by Smith, an obviously uninformed columnist, were as follows:
“On the Democratic side all they want is more revenue to throw to the winds and remain in power.” “Neither side is wiling to even talk about paying down the monstrous debt they have all contributed to.” “… the president and his party do not give a good ding-dang.” “I’m convinced Democrats are intent on continuing the spending so long as they stay in power and country stays solvent.”
Really? I’m so very disappointed to see this biased, untrue, idiotic journalism in The Selma Times-Journal during this most critical time in our history. In my opinion, Mr. Smith belongs to the uninformed, delusional, or just plain stupid minority.
I realize it’s an “opinion,” but how about using more informed and less biased columnists in the future?
