‘Seriously , WDEV unbalanced?’

To The Editor:

I read in wonder last week at Mr. Thomas' letter that ranted about WDEV's biased news coverage based on John McLaughry's daily viewpoint . Is that the only time of day that Mr. Thomas tunes into the station? He must not be tuned in when Equal Time is on in the afternoon for a full hour with its biased leftist views. He must not be tuned in Friday afternoon for the Thom Hartmann/Bernie Sanders Socialist hour nor the daily evening "Democracy Now" which is decidedly not conservative. How about Jim Hightower's daily mostly anti-business addresses? Then there is the two hours per day of the Mark Johnson show that must be the most evenhanded political talk show out there.

Hey, I don't agree with some of what John McLaughry says, but to say that this radio station is biased is surely a joke. Whoa, say, you weren't punking us, were you?

I never said that WDEV was unbalanced and my comment did not address other channel programming. Please reread my original post - not the response to it that twisted the conversation. I just think us listeners deserve better than John McLaughry. When someone can reasonably show me that man is not causing global warning as Mr. McLaughry claimed on WDEV's airwaves last week, I will stand down about asking for more from my local radio station. Expressing different viewpoints is fine. Broadcasting a viewpoint on the airwaves that has been scientifically discredited is a step too far.
