Day provided First Amendment lesson with publishing of recent letters
Thank you for demonstrating the importance of our First Amendment rights by publishing two recent letters. In the more recent (Sept. 9) letter, Linda MacCluggage exercised the right to express her opinion about an earlier (Sept. 7) letter by Steve Partridge, criticizing The Day’s decision to print it.
Apparently, Ms. MacCluggage overlooked the First Amendment rights due Mr. Partridge to express his opinion as well as The Day’s right to publish opinions, as it sees fit, to serve all readers.
The First Amendment protects the newspaper’s right to publish the results of The Day’s excellent investigative journalism as well as opinion, state, and local news. Well done.
