  1. I would love for you to write a column on the state of journalism in the United States. Especially since you espouse the notion of “let’s just have the truth, no matter how that cookie crumbles”. THAT is what I want to see, news reporting that is factual and without bias. If my ox gets gored, so be it. And poor sentence construction and grammar. Good Gosh! The local so called journalists make so many errors in their written reports it is shameful to claim to have taken college level English classes. Then you have news readers on TV. That is all they are, readers reading the script on the screen in front of them, and doing that poorly.

  2. It’s a shame that hacks like Dan Rather, Heraldo Rivera, Brain Williams, Bill O’Reilly, Rachel Maddow, Jayson Blair, Lara Logan, Louis Seibold, Janet Cooke, and Dorothy Bland did not receive and accept Professor Van Tuyll’s instructions on truth and ethics. They are not journalists. It must gall her to watch and hear them or read their products.
