We want more than lo­cal news

The Hamilton Spectator - - OPINION -

RE: Who cares about non-Hamil­ton news (May 12)

Re­cently, I found an old news­pa­per in my base­ment from 1979 called The Spec­ta­tor, now known as The Hamil­ton Spec­ta­tor. The older re­ported news lo­cally and in­ter­na­tion­ally, as does the new.

I have never known the The Spec re­gard­less of which city name you at­tach to this ti­tle to re­port only lo­cal news. A good, re­spected and re­spon­si­ble news out­let will in­form their read­ers and view­ers of the di­ver­sity and hap­pen­ings around the globe. That is why I sub­scribe, that is why I read it! I’m not sure what planet the let­ter writer fell from but I do have a sug­ges­tion for you — un­sub­scribe, don’t read and stay in your glass house in your lit­tle cor­ner of your world!
