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.
