Letter: Is this honest reporting?
July 15, 2013, 05:00 AM

Editor,

I have been rightfully chastised for being critical of the press. The Trayvon Martin, George Zimmerman trial is one of the reasons that I am so harsh. The press has portrayed Trayvon Martin as an altar boy and George Zimmerman as a neo-Nazi. In all probability neither is true. This has turned simple shooting into a national racial incident. Even the president has fanned the flames by proclaiming “if I had a son he would look like Trayvon Martin.” As the case draws to a close the nation braces for riots. Is this honest reporting?

Should the Washington Redskins change its name?

Yes. The name is insensitive.
No. The political correctness has to stop somewhere.
Yes. But choose something silly like the "Washington Bobs."
Not sure but it's for the owners to decide not lawmakers
Don't care. Let's focus on baseball season!
