It is not possible to be in favor of justice for some people and not be in favor of justice for all people.– Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Everyone knows what that bad cop did was absolutely wrong, and everyone knows what the rioting and looting did to those communities, but the latter seems to be lost in Dr. King’s quote. In short order the media loses their interest about rioting and looting and only provides a one-sided view of the tragic killing by a police officer. How many good police officers have lost their lives protecting us all. The liberal press, like the Pocono Record, print and say what they think is necessary to achieve their own goals. America’s free press use to be just that, printing the news, not fake news, not propaganda, not just politically correct articles or not just anything else to further their own liberal views. The media have an important platform that should promote dialogue, yet many in the media shut down the opposition. This is very similar to those socialist and communist countries that control the dissemination of news. Most all know that the Pocono Record is a liberal newspaper. The Pocono Record should provide a better all-inclusive service to its readers – doing that may also expand its readership.
