“This is the most politically divided community I’ve run across, and the ratio of liberals to conservatives has largely evened up in recent years,” The Union’s publisher Don Rogers writes in his column this week.
“It’s been suggested to me that this division is just newspaper exaggeration by amplification. People with bigger bees in their bonnet are more likely to write stinging op-eds and letters, after all. This is true to an extent, but it’s deeper than that. I find more people here a lot less generous toward folks with the ‘wrong’ views.
“We need to recognize this so we can do something about it. This one might be the easiest of this Big Three to solve. All we have to do is listen to understand; we don’t have to agree. Good grief.”
Don, The Union mines a divided community on its op-ed page, with its “anything goes” policy — a recurring theme here. You can do something about that!
