Let­ter proves dan­gers of lim­ited news

Maryland Independent - - Community Forum -

I would like to thank the ed­i­tors for pub­lish­ing the let­ter from Glo­ria Hawkins [“The dif­fer­ence this elec­tion will make”] on Aug. 26 in the Mary­land In­de­pen­dent. It per­fectly il­lus­trates the need for peo­ple to ex­pose them­selves to more than one source for their news and in­for­ma­tion. Lim­it­ing one­self to one source can ob­vi­ously re­sult in be­com­ing mis­in­formed and lead to a prej­u­diced and, dare I say, racist view of the world.

It be­hooves peo­ple to read mul­ti­ple news sources and watch mul­ti­ple news out­lets on tele­vi­sion. Only then can they de­velop an ed­u­cated opin­ion.

Again, thank you for a les­son in the dan­gers of bi­ased jour­nal­ism.

Richard Turner, Ch­e­sa­peake Beach
