Letter: Not so hot

April 3, 2014 

The Herald's use of Hot Topics on its editorial pages -- unsigned local comments on current issues -- is terrible journalism. Logic and facts don't matter. Only sensationalism does. Why doesn't the Herald have the courage or character to include the names on online commenters selected for this feature?

Their flaunted views are of no value except to fill newspaper space. The Herald refuses to run signed letters that "are in poor taste." How ironic.


Tri-City Herald is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper. We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point. Thank you for taking the time to offer your thoughts.
