Letter to the Editor

Harry Belafonte undeserving of article's attention

Wednesday, October 19, 2011

To the Editor:

In Saturday's paper eulogizing Harry Belafonte, I wish you had been fair and balanced in your reporting (Editor's note: The story to which he makes reference was an Associated Press feature on the Television page).

Brainwashing the public doesn't let the people know the whole truth. I am sure as news people you remember a few short years ago when Mr. Belafonte visited his Communist friend Hugo Chavez and he made a speech really badmouthing the country that made Belafonte the man he is.

When he came home, that leftist organization AARP made him their Man of the Year.

Let the people know the facts and the country will be saved (Abe Lincoln).

I haven't written anything that was not true, so there is no reason for not printing it.
