Is the Kirkland Reporter the editor's personal billboard for political and religious agendas? What other explanation is possible for choosing to publish a letter that has nothing to do with the Kirkland Reporter or specifically Kirkland?

The letter from Luisa Franklin-Bell in the May 2 paper complains about national television programming. She apparently doesn't even understand constitutional rights. It has nothing to do with the paper or city.

Her letter isn't the first published showing a strong bias to the right and an apparent editorial agenda that has nothing to do with the city of Kirkland or objective balanced journalism. Perhaps instead of Kirkland Reporter the paper should be renamed "Right Wing Values" to better represent the true agenda?

Please stick to balanced topics related to the city of Kirkland and not political or religious axe grinding. The paper should serve the city at large and not a some narrow personal agenda.

If the paper continues to publish similar right wing and inappropriate nonsense I'll gladly help start a campaign with the larger advertisers using social media sites to rally others around the cause. Many of them have policies against supporting discrimination, political and religious causes. I'll also be contacting the publisher.

Michael Nelson, Kirkland
