Letters to the Editor

Week of May 29, 2002

What decent candidate wanting to tell the truths about the issues would stand a chance? Who would listen [to], and who would report, the facts and principles he or she brought forward?

How would public financing of campaigns reduce the power of slogans and special interest lies? Will we have a Truth Commission evaluating the claims of our publicly financed campaigns? Will each media outlet give equal time and space to each candidate? Shall I hold my breath?

Or will the proposed "reforms" simply remove from the public the ability to offer or deny candidates support with our money, individually or in groups?

Of course, the voices of the media will not be stilled or muted. They will have the full freedom of the press as guaranteed by our beloved Constitution. They will protect us.
