Letter: Coverage of Greene suit came across as ‘hit piece’


I think it’s important to let you know that your hit piece on Damian Greene is completely out of context. We all know this was done purposely at a time where it is nearly impossible for rebuttal before the election. It’s a political hit piece, pure and simple.

It is obvious to everyone that Whidbey News-Times has simply become a communication arm for the Island County Democratic Party.

I hope you realize Island County went red in the primaries this fall and this is not good for business. This is the second time I’ve seen an article purposefully digging to jab Damian Greene by the same writer. When I tried to send a endorsement for Greene I got no response.

Biased journalism is a danger to us all no matter what side people are on. You can do better.

Editor’s note: The letter of endorsement referred to by Stina Wenzek was published in the Sept. 30 edition of the Whidbey News-Times.
