“People are tired of the political representatives they elected being maligned…in your newspaper,” writes contributor

Since your arrival in Rimbey to assume the position of editor of the Rimbey Review, it seems you have brought with you a certain political agenda which is a prominent feature of your paper each week.

Dear Editor;

Since your arrival in Rimbey to assume the position of editor of the Rimbey Review, it seems you have brought with you a certain political agenda which is a prominent feature of your paper each week. While it is an accepted fact that the editor of a newspaper can express his views through the editorial page, it seems you are printing editorials and also publishing letters from people outside our community expressing political beliefs which constantly criticize our elected leaders if for no other reason than they are different from what you think they should be. Sometimes the facts stated or implied are half-truths, falsehoods or just fairy tales made up to express a particular view. A community newspaper needs to show a certain degree of impartiality in its reporting and commentary.

I believe less time spent on your political agenda and more time reporting on news and events in Rimbey and community would be beneficial to your newspaper and the community at large.

I can say with a certain amount of certainty that if you relied on subscriptions for your newspaper to survive, it would not. People are tired of the political representatives they elected being maligned on a weekly basis in your newspaper.
