Letter: Media needs to make big changes


The July 4 “Sound Off” column on views of a free press by our Founding Fathers did not take into account that today’s media is predominately liberal and reports the news in way that supports its political views.

When celebrities make political statements, it is just their opinion and not news. Media seems to only use celebrities with opinions which match their liberal views.

Media uses information which has not been verified if it supports their views.

Media takes statements out of context to support their views. Media needs to go back to reporting the facts and leave opinions to the opinion section.

Media needs to make big changes to restore integrity and honesty to news reporting.
