Letter: Political bias?


My wife and I retired to the Verde Valley over 16 years ago. At that time, we subscribed to both the Camp Verde Bugle and the Camp Verde Journal before deciding the Bugle was the most newsworthy and more politically neutral of the two.

But now it appears the Bugle’s editor and its editorial staff are crying crocodile tears and stomping a lot of sour grapes since this past November’s election. What gives with the negative, anti-presidential “cartoons” we see every week in the Bugle?

I don’t know what your other readers may call it, but I call it disrespectful and I do not understand how the Bugle believes that continuing to print this hyperbole is the path by which to bring Democrats, Republicans and Independents closer together.

The election is over, so if the Bugle cannot respect the president, it should at least have some respect for its subscribers. Surely the staff can search the internet for less polarizing editorial cartoons.

Please do us all a favor and move back to the center of the political spectrum.

My political affiliation, I have been an Independent voter since I was honorably discharged from the United States Air Force in 1971.
