I am deeply disappointed that The Spokesman-Review endorsed Trump for president. That is my political opinion.
But I am truly horrified to learn that the S-R has an editorial board of ONE PERSON, and that person is the publisher and owner of the paper. This is the person who decides which candidate(s) the only newspaper in Spokane, Washington, will endorse?? This does not sound like a free press to me.
I am truly committed to supporting the print news, and today I am faced with the choice of voting with my wallet, canceling my subscription to the S-R, and suffering the loss of the only access to a local newspaper that I have, or maintaining my support of the print news and imploring the editors of the S-R to establish a truly deliberative editorial board. It is a choice every subscriber should consider today, if we expect the heart of a free press to continue to beat in our country.
