Letter: Kudos for a thoughtful explanation
Letter to the editor

Dear editor:

I commend The Lake Report, and specifically Kevin MacLean, for reaching out to me directly and quickly after I expressed concern about political bias being displayed in a recent front-page opinion piece, ("Our leaders have failed us too often in this pandemic," April 15).

MacLean offered me reassurance about the paper's approach to coverage as well as the placement of its opinion pieces. He also mentioned some of the challenges inherent in publishing a local weekly, which I truly can appreciate.

I was very impressed with this thoughtful and timely response. Kudos!

If I may be indulged for one moment, I would like to also comment on the response of one reader to my original letter, ("Keep opinions in the opinion section," April 22). Unfortunately, he lost the plot. Completely. I was looking for balanced coverage, not one-sided coverage. Sigh.

Moreover, for the record, I prefer CTV's news coverage to that of the CBC, and every morning I read the Globe & Mail, the Ottawa Citizen, the National Post and, yes, the Toronto Star.

For the best coverage of my beloved Maple Leafs, I read the Star's sports section. I am a lifelong Leafs fan. For my sins.
