May I ask why you give so many column inches to Billy Fried’s one-sided political column?
He consistently makes false claims. If he desires to have readers of your paper actually read his one-sided rants, then he needs to start fact-checking.
In his most recent article in the July 26, 2019 issue of the LB Indy, he states (the Paris Climate Accord) the “rest of the world has committed $100 Billion … while the U.S. has put up Zilch”.
First off – “committing” or “pledging” are much different than actually spending real money.
Second – China, India and other huge polluters have paid nothing into the Accord – the U.S. – prior to our President pulling support, had paid $1 Billion in US Dollars to this fund.
I realize that everyone has a right to their opinion.
But can’t you relegate Billy Fried to a “Letter to the Editor” status like you do to the rest of us? Or can we ALL get a column in your paper to vent our respective views every other week?
