Letter: Denver Post’s coverage unprofessional
June 1, 2012
To the editor:
I have never written a letter to the editor before, but after reading Sara Burnett’s article in Wednesday’s Denver Post, I’m compelled to write.
How lucky we are in Craig to get unbiased reporting on local political events. Burnett’s article was filled with omissions and nonfactual statements about Mitt Romney’s trip to Craig.
She stated that attendance was only 500 people, that we have not been affected much by the present administration’s policies on coal and energy, and neglected to mention the oil and gas industry and the effect that present policies have had.
She neglected to mention that Peabody Coal is employing temporary workers through Price Mine Service because of policies and uncertainty of the future.
She stated that there had been no layoffs and the coal industry was “very stable.” We all know better.

At least Mitt Romney was willing to come to our community and listen to local leaders and businesses and hear their concerns.
Do you really think that our current president would be willing to do that? Yeah, OK. Thanks for reporting the visit in a professional and unbiased way.
