Letters to the Editor: Why climate journalism needs to give readers a reason to hope
I have been writing for The Oklahoman for about 22 years and have never received a letter like this in all that time.
It reads as if the writer feels that he has been personally insulted and that he was wronged and he wants to tell a story to bring readers back to the point from which he left. Maybe he is being sincere and would rather have me fired. A good journalist is a good journalist no matter what it takes.
I have written about politics, sports, crime and weather on The Oklahoman for more than 20 years. I will not retract what has been written, I will not change the articles nor alter the tone or the content. To try and rewrite my writing is a disgrace to all those who have supported me.
To my fellow Oklahomans, I urge you to continue reading my column because I like to share my thoughts with you.
I wish you and your loved ones a Happy Thanksgiving.
I also wish you and your loved ones a Happy New Year.
I like to be an Oklahoman.
The reason the writing on The Oklahoman is so hard to read because of all the comments on the story. I have no problem with people sharing their views and opinions. Everyone is entitled to their opinion. Sometimes my opinions and opinions of those who disagree with our views and opinions are different. The problem is when it is so obvious to everyone reading the story and they have a right to their opinion but the writer of the story is too busy to take the time to reply to those who want to share theirs.
When a writer of a story has a point, why don’t they let the comments stand? It would make the story more readable. If the writer has a point or a criticism, let’s hear it.
I believe the article should have been titled “What happens when the Oklahoman finds herself in the middle?” I believe we have the right to all our opinions. We have the right to state those opinions. They are ours. That is not a right to post or comment as all of our opinions are valid. Why don’t we have the right to our opinions, but we don’t have the right to pass your opinion on
