Pa­per needs to al­low com­ments

The Daily Herald - - OPINION -

The Her­ald’s big­gest prob­lem is stay­ing up to date by not al­low­ing com­ments to your ar­ti­cles when they are so rel­e­vant to cur­rent times. You make your read­ers jump through many hoops to be heard. Is this fair or is it The Her­ald’s way of vet­ting and keep­ing those pas­sion­ate and valid com­ments from be­ing heard and dis­cussed? You are not a demo­cratic news­pa­per if you con­tinue to stop any com­ment to your “valid facts or the bi­ased spin” you may and do present. If you con­tinue to ne­glect the pub­lic from re­spond­ing to what you print your much read hard copy news­pa­per will be done. I have clients that wait for your pa­per. You may be cor­rect and de­serv­ing or you may be bi­ased. We want to tell you or com­ment at an ar­ti­cle’s end, not crawl through the maze to get a let­ter to the ed­i­tor.

Some of us, in fact, your loyal read­ers (who fol­low all you write are loyal, older and do not use Twitter, we do not use In­sta­gram, we may not be on a so­cial net­work. You are elim­i­nat­ing the largest por­tion of your read­er­ship. All se­niors who have stuck by you for many many years..

Get with it Her­ald. You stand the chance of be­ing an al­ba­tross.
