Responding to online discussions finding fault with the balance and fairness of broadcast and print media, one reader of Northern Insights took action. That person shares it with us and you are invited to follow suit.
This a letter sent by a potential customer to an advertiser:
My name is xxxxxx xxxxxxx, my address is XXXX XXXXXXX XXX, XXXXXXRecommend this post
I am looking to purchase something similar to the Model XXXXX, sold by your company. This is a purchase I intend to make in the near future.
I would like to make you aware that I have been very displeased with the quality of journalism and proper coverage of news events in BC on radio station CKNW [or Station X or newspaper Y]. The programming is heavily slanted in favour of the current government and offers no alternate points of view....thus the general public is not aware of many important issues that are adversely affecting out province.
As you advertise on the CKNW website [or other place] I will look elsewhere for the product I wish to purchase.
Thank you for your consideration of my thoughts on this.
