Letter: Create balance in 'The News'


The “Happy Easter” edition of The News has finally prompted me to write. The first section “treated” the readers to front page articles on four different unpleasant events. Pages four and five included more crimes and jail logs. The excellent local sports writing by Gabriel Stovall is usually the high point of The News. 

Of particular concern to me is the weekly left-wing rants from Eugene Robinson. Almost without exception, his point in every article centers around removing Donald Trump from office. I’m sure he would blame Trump for starting WWII except for the fact that he had not been born yet. 

I would hate to think this person represents the editorial policy of The Covington News. At the very least, I would hope The News would add a conservative writer as there’s certainly benefit to having views from both liberals and conservatives.
