Feedback or censorship?
The double-standard on blatant display.
For our astute observers, the Columbia Gorge News chose not to publish our Letter to the Editor that we posted earlier this week. In fairness to the CG News, Kirby Neumann-Rea did offer me an opportunity to re-submit. This is my response:
I appreciate your initiative in calling me the other day in regards to the Letter to the Editor that I submitted as a representative of the Klickitat County Republicans.
After much thought, I have decided not to edit and re-submit our LTE. After reviewing other letters and the article that we were responding to, it would be disingenuous and misleading to submit something that is not truly our opinion, but an edited opinion as dictated by a third party. I have reviewed all my statements, and I stand by them as fact and/or opinion, as allowed by the guidance of the Columbia Gorge News. I cannot substantiate the submissions or opinions of the Klickitat County Democrats as they are responsible for answering for their content, not me.
Your feedback was noted and will be taken into consideration with future submissions.
