The extreme bias of the Whidbey News-Times in favor of the Navy’s expansion of EA-18G Growlers at Outlying Field Coupeville and egregious trivializing of the Attorney General’s lawsuit — including COER — is no more apparent than the culled excerpt regarding Dr. Bruce Porter and his wife reducing our declaration in the COER lawsuit to say, “for example, state that the noise makes it impossible to talk in person or on the phone, watch TV or conduct most normal activities of life.”
What you eliminated was of utmost importance: “his wife” is me, Sharon A. U. Vaughn, stating that I was diagnosed with stage 4 ovarian cancer on Jan. 9, 2019, began nine weeks of intensive chemotherapy then had extensive surgery on April 25, 2019. Then, again, began another nine weeks of chemotherapy.
When I would return home from WhidbeyHealth, I would try to sleep, but immediately the multiple jets would begin their circuit flights right over our house at 30- to 90-second intervals, sometimes until after midnight.
This was seven months of my life.
If you want people to support free press, print the truth, not blatant misinformation or deletion of pertinent information.
