Dear Editor,

I have a few things to say about Liberal Bias in the press. Every morning when I glance the "news" programs I am bombarded with talking heads who are doing their best to bring down Democratic Government. I ask my wife each morning while she watches GMA "whats Trump done now?" It is the lead story every morning. Why? You figure it out. I already know. I will not try to school you because you are unteachable. None so blind as those who will not see, none so deaf as those who will not hear.

Your headline story in the June 28, 2017 issue of The Millen News was a prime example of media bias. The supposed facts of the case against Jack Bethel were presented as actual facts.

'the deputy responded to a 911 call about a man with a gun on Hermans Road around 8:30 a.m. when he encountered Bethel, who was on his way to his residence. The deputy requested that Bethel lie down on the ground and put the gun down.(Sic)'

No where in your presentation of "fact" did you admit that this was the alleged encounter. I do not know exactly what happened that morning because I was not there and I doubt that you were either. In fact your story does not indicate that JCS Robert Oglesby was there.

Everything you presented in your Story was just a story but you presented it as fact. Shame on you. My humble opinion.
