Ten things you learn in an election
Hearing from readers is always bracing, particularly in an election year. Here are some of the things to be learned from their comments about the news media, particularly newspapers.
You focus on trivial and sensational things instead of giving us information about the issues.
You keep running those deadly dull issue stories and editorials that nobody cares about.
You give us no respite from this relentless election coverage.
You give us all these silly local features when you ought to be covering the election more thoroughly.
You blow things out of proportion by putting them on the front page with those huge headlines.
You always bury the really important news deep inside the paper to make sure nobody finds it.
You’re just a mouthpiece for the radical left.
You’re a spineless corporate apologist.
You use your power and influence to sway the election to carry out your liberal agenda.
Your pathetic attempts to carry out your liberal agenda will fail because no one reads you anymore.
