After the incessant barrage of left-winged propaganda, I cancelled my subscription to the Daily ‘Waste of’ Times. Like watching my wife, angrily troll through liberal Facebook posts, it made me angry and depressed to read that crap each morning. The nail in the coffin was when they posted the rebuke of on Trump in a full page reprint/ regurgitation from USA today/Gannett, their extreme left-leaning manufacturer of liberal Kool-Aid.
When I called them to cancel, they asked why. Not a good time to ask that question, but I was direct: “I am sick and tire of companies like the Times telling me how to think. Furthermore, I’m surprised that, as a business, you continue to make a product that insults a large majority of your customers. Why would any smart businessman do that? Please pass that along to the editor. If I did that, I would be out of business”
So, it got me to thinking. Since liberals change policy by boycotting businesses – and entire states (NCAA and North Carolina) when they don’t like something- why don’t we start a movement to boycott the Times until they start reporting in a fair and balances way. Not ‘right’ – not ‘left’ -but fair. I don’t want to see a Bill O’Reilly as much as I don’t want to see a Rachel Maddow lean one way or the other. They both are too extreme. And when an opinion is expressed, label it as such. Don’t hide it through a subliminal liberal narrative hidden within the story. How about simply reporting the story without any bias. I know that’s hard, since all of your professors told you how to right that way. And how about NOT omitting stories to achieve your left leaning agenda. What a fresh and novel idea.
It is obvious that a majority of local citizens do not agree with your views, so please stop trying to convince us otherwise.
So, we the right-minded, deplorable people of the Eastern Shore hereby declare full and complete boycott of your newspaper until you admit your bias, apologize for it and commit to fair and balanced reporting. I really miss the paper, actually- my dog does more, as she wonders around at the end of my driveway looking for something to bring in and, since its woodstove season, I need something else to light the fire.
Thanks for listening.
A concerned citizen.
