Letters to the Editor Guidelines – Letter to the Editor

The Weekly’s Letter from Anthony Becker amounted to a free political ad. Not only did this set a precedent for all candidates but more than doubled your own 150 word limit. This is not about Mr Becker taking advantage of an opportunity but rather about the Weekly’s policies. People are drowning in and becoming immune to “polispeak” – it’s no surprise the voter turnout 3/4/20 was so low. Printing this Letter the day after Super Tuesday as a kickoff to Mr Becker’s November campaign potentially violated your own rules and appeared suspect – whatever happened to the ideal of unbiased journalism?
