Allen Hischke: Shame on Daily Press
June 6, 2014
To the editor:
First, Memorial Day passed with little or no recognition of our heroic veterans and active military people. Now we are at the 70th anniversary of D-Day, and again the Craig Daily Press has chosen to print nothing in the paper about one of the most daring and deadly operations of World War II. I guess I wonder where the Craig daily Press thinks it gets its freedom to print their paper. Since the rest of us know that right is provided by our military personal past, present and future, why doesn't the Craig Daily Press think it is not appropriate to thank them for their service by printing a few articles and posting a few pictures about these events? I just do not understand it at all. I attempted to put a "Letter To The Editor" in the paper after Memorial Day when the paper once again had little coverage for our veterans. The paper refused to print it. They told me they would "try to do a better job on Veterans Day." Shameful. My opinion is that the paper was just too embarrassed to print the truth. And in my opinion that truth is that the Craig Daily Press just flat does not care about our heroes past and present that defend our freedoms with their very lives. Time will tell if they have the guts to print this one.
