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?

It's good to go back to what most people in Alaska call it
Never thought about it
We should keep the name McKinley
It's OK, but would be nice to find a different way to honor McKinley
How about keeping both names?
