Brexit ar­ti­cle be­longed on ed­i­to­rial page

Maryland Independent - - Community Forum -

I was ap­palled to read the ar­ti­cle, “Months after Brexit, English res­i­dents find Amer­i­can po­lit­i­cal di­vide ‘ap­palling’” (Mary­land In­de­pen­dent, Nov. 11).

In the first place, an ar­ti­cle about Brexit has not much rel­e­vance to the peo­ple of South­ern Mary­land. Se­condly, the ar­ti­cle was heav­ily bi­ased to­wards the mi­nor­ity that did not win the Brexit elec­tion. In fact, not one pro-Brexit voice was quoted. Thirdly, the ar­ti­cle was heav­ily tilted to­wards those “res­i­dents” — pre­sum­ably not Bri­tish cit­i­zens — who had Mus­lim-sound­ing names. Noth­ing wrong with that, but it was bi­ased.

This ar­ti­cle be­longs on the ed­i­to­rial page. In the fu­ture, please keep this type of preach­ing to us on that page.

I am em­bar­rassed by the shrink­ing news cov­er­age of the In­de­pen­dent, in both the real size of the pa­per to the con­tent. Please bring back the old In­de­pen­dent. Fred­er­ick G. Scott, St. Charles
