Mr. Visel, (letter)
 
Should I then assume that you gave no credibility to WikiLeaks with regard to all the supposed leaks of the DNC hacked emails? After all, they won't acknowledge who the "leaker" was although the director of the FBI has now stated the Russians used them to leak the information.
 
So far as whether the Main Stream Media is biased, you can believe as you so choose, but how is it that you think not only the US media but the INTERNATIONAL media is also biased?

With respect to ““That” Concerned Citizen Again’s” letter that has “Exceptions” to my letter about Biased Media you have lost all credibility with your submission by not having the courage to have your real name posted alongside your letter (instead you use an alias) and so your words are meaningless.

Even though you are wrong on so many levels due to your own personal bias, your letter, as well as others that do the same, does not deserve a response because you are hiding behind this alias.

As an individual, I applaud Richard Nebel and Terry Goldman for sharing their views concerning the media. I have always felt immense gratitude for the First Amendment’s provisions prohibiting Congress from making any law “abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press.”
 
Putting on my hat as a member of the County Library Board, I commend to our community the wide variety of media publications available online and in person at Mesa Public Library and the beautiful new White Rock Branch Library.

As our girls were growing up in our ¾ acres above Walnut Canyon, we came to know many chickens.  The first hen, Peeky, hatched an only child, Peeper. He became a sensitive gentle person, a lovely gamecock whose caring behavior echoed his upbringing.
 
He also was a patient playmate for our youngest daughter. She carried him, 3-inch spurs and all, in her arms and dressed him up for the pet parade with no struggle. His quiet acceptance spoke volumes about trust between species.
