In response to Gina Channell Wilcox's request for more $120 memberships, I simply say:
NO, no further support of PW.
You are still too biased against conservative opinion in your reporting and in SOME of your opinion pieces.

Nicki, how ironic! I am not giving them money for exactly opposite of your reason - PW has at least one Trumpist blogger and does a poor job of managing its writers e.g., some of Dennis Miller’s statements in his article about impact of teacher strike on kids sports.

I am totally supportive of having conservative bloggers and writers but I don’t think Tim is any good in writing blogs and not the proper representative of conservatives. He could be better at writing about golf.

Tim Hunt is a wonderful contributor to the PW and has been for years. I admire his thoughtful, well-informed, and often, courageous contributions to our weekly paper.

Oh Kevin your comments are rich: “… I don’t think Tim is any good in writing blogs…”. Kevin, we have had to struggle with your posts to articles that are, quite honestly, gibberish. Tim addresses the topics that others won’t touch, and they give way to a robust exchange. You are among the a destructive group that encourages censorship to those views you oppose. Why do you think we have a segment of society that is uniformed and lacking knowledge? I appreciate PW monitoring your comments, but perhaps it would be better for your ‘barking’ to live or die on its own.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
