Media must start providing quality

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionWelcome Rosanne Cheeseman, The Gazette’s newest board member. Your article states that Cheeseman believes it will be critical for newspapers to “continue providing quality content and “maintaining” the trust of the community.If she is to make any difference at all to the sad state of journalism nowadays, may I suggest that she rephrase her statement to read: It will be critical for newspapers to “start’ providing quality content and “regain” the trust of the community.Case in point, five pages later you printed a story about the U.S. military giving a pass to Afghan pedophiles, as if this was some shocking new story. In fact, homosexual pedophilia on the part of Afghan soldiers has been a well-known peculiarity of the Afghan war for at least 10 years now, dating back to the Bush administration. Heterosexual pedophilia is even more rampant, though no one would know it from reading The Gazette. President Trump’s “escalating” war on the media is refreshing and well-justified.As another example, I urge all readers to log into YouTube and search for “Womens March.” Read the signs and watch the behavior of the marchers, which is clearly deranged and dysfunctional to say the least. Then compare what you see with your own eyes to the nonsensical, fake coverage of this event which you will find in The Sunday Gazette.Mike BlyskalBallston SpaMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesEDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsEDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusGuilderland girls’ soccer team hands BH-BL first league losslast_img read more
