The Whig should be less biased
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
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.
