Over the years, I’ve grown accustomed to the one-sided slants on the majority of your newspaper’s reporting, but I continue my subscription to the IR because it’s the only one I can get delivered to my home daily.
I routinely read a couple of the comic strips, the obits, a couple op-ed pieces and scan the legals.
On real and gritty community issues, I find it difficult to get a clear picture of the whole story from your coverage. Take for instance the current issue of the proposed K-12 health enhancement curriculum. It was reported that there were 64 testimonies heard during a recent meeting, both “for and against” the proposal. The way the article was written by the reporter (and edited by staff?), it seems to be a pretty innocuous issue without much credence being provided to the “opponents.”
Which of the two sides is the majority? Are they fervent in their opinions? There were 300 people in a seemingly standing-room-only crowd.
There perhaps is a bit more controversy, perhaps more heavily weighted, than what is being reported, eh? Oh, well, it’s just Helena. I’m glad I don’t have any children going to school over there.
