Letters to the Editor

Same old story, again and again

What ever happened to independent news? It's been at least two decades since most of the news organizations reported the news from various sources.

The expense and difficulty of gathering and reporting major news stories such as elections caused most newspapers to use the Associated Press as their exclusive source for news; however, the American people are the losers.

Pick up any major newspaper or watch any TV news channel and it's the same story almost word for word!

I would think journalists would love to have an assignment to report on a story for their employer that is different, interesting and unique! And the American public would love it!

Try reporting the way it used to be!
