Honesty, balance often missing

Your editorial about not being the enemy has a lot of good points on the responsibility of the media. I never took Journalism 101 but I’m guessing what you wrote was presented in that course. I noted that, either by mistake or deliberately, the words “honestly” and “fairly” were missing.

On many occasions I have found opinions expressed in news articles, especially in AP stories. I would also say that your choices of columns are decidedly one-sided. And quite often I see letters to the editor that contain totally false information and also in the Bless Your Heart articles. I assume that you feel that you have no responsibility for honesty or fairness.

How many times have CNN and The New York Times and others had to apologize for providing false information?

On Nov. 16, 2018, following the signing of the Cyber Security Agency Act, President Trump was asked for his assessment of the ongoing trade war with China. The President responded: “We put on tariffs on $250 billion worth of goods … Our country has done very well, and China, as you…

Recent Daily Reflector editorials and comments in the Public Forum have raised my eyebrows and my concerns about the sustainability of the human race. How can we continue if we are our greatest enemy? Every person I know has, and is entitled to, a unique perspective and personal opinion. Our…

A recent submission in the Public Forum suggested that to follow Jesus, I must vote Republican.

For me it is a life-long struggle and my highest calling to be in the fold of the good shepherd. Nonetheless, I don’t believe that scripture suggests that I can take my stand beneath the cross of…

In 1986, internationally-renowned singer Janet Jackson made the inspirational song, “What Have You Done for Me Lately?” Elected officials should actualize the meaning of that song. Oftentimes, elected officials make shallow promises, kiss babies, and hypocritically “press the…

Consider the following Republican presidents: Richard M. Nixon, Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush. Each a two-term, or twice-elected president; each a more disastrous presidency than its predecessor on the list (Nixon posing a threat to the Constitution via Watergate, Reagan posing a greater threat…

Orange County District Court Judge Beverly Scarlett recently compared Silent Sam to Hitler and, by extension, the human suffering of slaves to that of the Holocaust. Based upon her remarks, it is not clear how well Judge Scarlett knew Sam or Adolf Hitler.

Statistically speaking, Sam had not…

This letter is in response to the letter titled “Unjustly defaming Dixon again” by Willie Roberts that appeared in the Wednesday, Oct. 31 edition.

Roberts stated that “White women have historically been used, wittingly or unwittingly, to destroy black men’s lives. Their…

What’s with you, Vic Corey? One second you are crowing how Trump is the reason for you being richer, the next you are, as always, worshipping your idea of a “new Christian.”

First, the U.S. is not a business; it is a country. Trump’s planned bankruptcies, his finding ways…

Is it any wonder that the attendance is dropping in the NFL when you can only pay the head man, Roger Godell, $40 million a year and have as many as five commentators sitting around a table in their $500-plus suits as they blurt out that which you and I are looking at? Not to mention another two…

With regard to the letter to the editor from David French concerning illegal immigration, I would respectfully ask Mr. French to do more research before citing any more misinformation. According to the Cato Institute and other sources, “The Fiscal Burden of Illegal Immigration” (2017)…
