No independence, no trust

To the editor:

I picked up your publication to see how the economy in New Hampshire is doing and to understand how your paper is pushing the economy in New Hampshire.

I was disappointed when I got to the Flotsam and Jetsam page. I would guess 90 percent of the comments were about the GOP. The economy requires all parties working together. I am tired of publications pushing their agenda. I am sure I could gather just as many comments about the Democrats and independents if I looked.

In my opinion, until the people pushing the news start becoming more independent again, you will find the voters continuing to be apathetic about where we are going as a country.

I picked up one edition of your paper and will likely not do so again. The main reason being that I do not read news to have someone else's agenda pushed upon me. Papers need to provide the facts and let the people make their opinions. When I cannot trust the independence of editorials, I cannot trust the integrity of the rest of the news.
