Letter: Forum reporting is quite suspect

By Ryan Gustafson


Will The Forum publish above-the-fold front-page headlines covering the political yard sign I saw hanging from a light pole? What about the yard signs on the public boulevards between the sidewalks and streets? Will serious investigative reporting be done on the issue of whether candidates for public office should be allowed to use public sidewalks when they go door-knocking? Should candidates who take public transportation be kicked off the ballot?

I’m voting for John Strand because he’s a good candidate and a hard worker who has great ideas to make Fargo a better place for all its citizens. He must be doing something right if a massive media conglomerate like Forum Communications, with its dozens of newspapers and radio and TV stations, is so opposed to the voters choosing him for City Commission.
