Praise for balanced coverage

B. Campbell obviously doesn’t read Tom Fletcher’s right wing rant. It’s surely meant as an antidote to the Observer’s “obvious” slant.

Really?  Letter writer B. Campbell obviously doesn’t read Tom Fletcher’s regular right wing rant…. It’s surely meant as an antidote to the Observer’s “obvious” slant.

For the record, I find the Observer very balanced and a fair reflection of this community’s values.  I don’t always agree with the editorial, but in a democracy we are supposed to discuss and find consensus on a variety of issues. It shouldn’t be black and white, the economy or the environment. Balance is what is sadly lacking in many media outlets.

To those who don’t like the Observer’s content? Well, you don’t have to read it… which reminds me of a quote by George Orwell: “Journalism is printing what someone else doesn’t want printed. Everything else is public relations”
