Submitter Chastises Reporting in Concise Letter to the Editor
The following letter to the editor from today’s Northwest Herald is was published here with the author’s permission:
To the Editor:
If employment in the U.S. dropped by 2 percent, it would be considered an unmitigated economic disaster.
And if the government issued a glowing report on the economy while employment dropped 2 percent, the press would have a field day.
And rightfully so.
This may not be the news we want to hear, but it’s the real story, and I’m appalled the Herald would purposely leave out the single most important economic indicator about the health of the local economy.
It goes beyond bad reporting to downright lying by omission.
Come on, Northwest Herald: If you want the public to respect you, then report the relevant and important facts about what’s going on in McHenry County.
