TDA says it wants letters, but then doesn’t print them

Mr. R. Green’s recent letter regarding the changes at The Daily Advance was right on point. While The Daily Advance claims to “welcome letters to the editor from readers,” I have personally experienced the complete opposite. The Daily Advance, as a rule, only publishes letters from a small and distinct group of people, the majority of whom are haters of President Donald Trump.

I have sent several letters to The Daily Advance rebutting the statements and claims made by these individuals, yet not one of my letters has been published. It appears that a certain letter-writer is so regularly published that she should more properly be considered a columnist. Now that “commenting” has been eliminated from The Daily Advance’s website, there is no real opportunity to rebut this all-too-frequent letter writer since no letters opposing her views ever appear in print.

There is no sense in pretending that The Daily Advance is anything but a tool for left-wing propaganda and those who hate our president. Any statement to the contrary is patently false on the face of it. Please stop claiming to want more letters from readers when your publication record clearly states the opposite.
