Could cre­ate bridges

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - VOICES -

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
