Could create bridges
Everyone is complaining about the coarsening of the polity. Some of this is due to singular points of view that populate one media channel or another or one newspaper or another. Yahoo News is such a site.
It is has just been purchased by Verizon, a great telecommunications company. It could accomplish a great national service if it provided noneditorialized news and also had a clearly marked editorial section with a wide range of opinions. A reasonable model is the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette.
A divided country sets up dangers for itself. A true communication company will create bridges. CHARLES VERMONT
