Letter: Letter writers need fuller view

  • Posted: Friday, October 18, 2013 12:01 a.m.

I rarely find people on the left who want to discuss politics, much less read articles or watch television channels of all stripes.

To that point, I read recent letters by Moses Mims and Liam McGinley who both stated they do not watch Fox News and find it right-wing propaganda, not worthy of scrutiny. Oh, really? I recommend these Fox programs, but I warn you, they are intellectual and fact-based: “Sunday Fox News” with Chris Wallace, “On the Record” with Greta Van Sustern, and the roundtable discussion at the end of the Brett Baier nightly news.

You might not agree with George Will, Charles Krauthammer, or Britt Hume, but they will perk up the gray matter. Krauthammer and Will are two of the most intellectual, respected journalists/pundits in the media, not to mention fair and knowledgeable. I watch MSNBC sometimes, but dislike the mean-spiritedness of its commentators.
