The Whig should be less bi­ased

Cecil Whig - - & -

FROM: KEN MONT­GOMERY RIS­ING SUN

Re­cently the Whig, while cel­e­brat­ing Na­tional News­pa­per Week, stated; “Ev­ery­one here at the news­pa­per cares about Ce­cil County and its res­i­dents.” Re­ally? It seems to be true for the folks that fol­low the news­pa­per nar­ra­tive. When choos­ing syn­di­cated colum­nists for ar­ti­cles car­ried in the Opin­ion sec­tion, there is lit­tle con­sid­er­a­tion for Repub­li­cans/ con­ser­va­tives. The pa­per has long been bi­ased, but now they have taken it to an all-time new high. Does the Whig rec­og­nize that Ce­cil County has more Repub­li­cans than Democrats??

Since the pres­i­den­tial cam­paign started, the Whig has re­leased its at­tack dogs (colum­nists) on a vi­cious cam­paign to de­fame Don­ald Trump. There are very few days with­out at­tacks. I find it in­cred­i­ble that the Whig would spend so much space bash­ing Trump. While not a fan of Don­ald Trump, I think Hil­lary Clin­ton has more se­ri­ous bag­gage than him. Why is there no out­rage con­cern­ing Clin­ton? It cer­tainly can’t be be­cause of a lack of con­demn­ing ma­te­rial.

The news me­dia han­dles this by sup­press­ing neg­a­tive in­for­ma­tion. The me­dia bias is so ob­vi­ous. Open the Whig three days a week and there it is. On one oc­ca­sion, there were six colum­nist ar­ti­cles of which five were lib­er­ally bi­ased. Again, noth­ing neg­a­tive in ref­er­ence to Hil­lary Clin­ton. What ever hap­pened to fair and bal­anced? The news me­dia will have none of that. Pol­i­tics is a rot­ten game of which the news me­dia is be­com­ing a large player.

For all its con­cerns for the res­i­dents of Ce­cil County, the Whig has de­cided to fol­low in line with the lib­eral news me­dia and ig­nore con­ser­va­tives and their opin­ions. The idea that news­pa­pers are con­sid­ered a trusted source of in­for­ma­tion may have been true at one time. Now, only 27 per­cent of Amer­i­cans be­lieve hon­esty and eth­i­cal stan­dards of jour­nal­ists are high.

As a life­long res­i­dent of Ce­cil County, and reader of the Whig, I can’t be­gin to ex­plain the dis­ap­point­ment I have in the Whig. Maybe some­day the pa­per will con­sider all res­i­dents, not just the ones that fit their nar­ra­tive. in pri­vate to sell out the Amer­i­can peo­ple by sup­port­ing the Tran­sPa­cific Part­ner­ship, open bor­ders and con­tin­ued hem­or­rhag­ing of

sup­press the vote, and dele­git­imize and negate vot­ers both from her op­po­nent in the pri­mary and now in the gen­eral elec­tion.

Clin­ton and her hus­band are the most dis­hon­est, crim­i­nal in­di­vid­u­als to ever seek or hold the of­fice of the pres­i­dent since the na­tion’s found­ing. Thirty years of hear­ing from these two is enough! eral cir­cuit and ap­pel­late courts and judges.

This agenda will open up im­mi­gra­tion, cur­tail free speech, in­fringe on gun rights, en­cour­age abor­tion, at­tack re­li­gious free­doms, im­pose fur­ther trans­gen­der

vot­ing rights and ex­tend to de­ci­sions re­gard­ing health care, en­vi­ron­ment, ed­u­ca­tion, se­cu­rity and eco­nomic poli­cies. They will nar­rowly de­fine the rights of in­di­vid­u­als and the pow­ers re­served

Amend­ments.

This will tram­ple the Con­sti­tu­tion and be a death knell to lim­ited con­sti­tu­tional gov­ern­ment and the lib­erty, free­doms and tra­di­tions on which this coun­try was founded and which have been bea­cons of light to the world. You are vot­ing not only for a pres­i­dent, but for a govern­ing phi­los­o­phy and the course of the Supreme Court for the next 25 years. does that say about his sup­port

to free speech, free­dom of the press, free­dom of re­li­gion are more cen­tral to our democ­racy than the right to bear arms. The

for our per­sonal free­doms. The en­tire Con­sti­tu­tion needs to be un­equiv­o­cally sup­ported, not just the parts that suit your agenda.

If you think Trump has any in­ter­est in uphold­ing the Con­sti­tu­tion you haven’t been pay­ing at­ten­tion. All in­di­ca­tions are Trump will do noth­ing to sup­port the prin­ci­ples of the Con­sti­tu­tion un­less they fur­ther his per­sonal in­ter­ests. If you’re will­ing to give up your con­sti­tu­tional right to free speech, to write a let­ter to the editor, to at­tend the church of your choice, then vote for Trump. If you cher­ish all your free­doms: speech, re­li­gion, peace­ably as­sem­bly, press, fair trial, along with gun own­er­ship you need to re­think a vote for Trump.

A gov­ern­ment of, by, and for the peo­ple won’t sur­vive should he be elected. He claims to be the law and or­der can­di­date, then spits in the face of our most ba­sic prin­ci­ples.
