Dennis Fuerst: Where’s the substance, Signal?

By Signal Contributor

Last update: Monday, March 20th, 2017

Based upon the article entitled “A peaceful protest” written by Gina Ender and published on A3 in Friday’s Signal, it would appear The Mighty Signal is now in the business of manufacturing news rather than reporting news.

Is it really news when a gathering of a mere nine people appears in the second-floor hallway of a politician’s office carrying signs which only they are able to view?

Evidently, these protesters contacted your reporter – who also happened to have a camera in hand – to stage their “peaceful protest.”

I would like to suggest that The Signal write and publish articles of substance – such as how the economics of the Affordable Care Act are unsustainable.

The Signal could play a meaningful role in the community by inserting some facts into this debate rather than publishing these cartoonish charades.

    ” these cartoonish charades” are not charades but are from compassionate protesters
    trying to voice their opinion on the deplorable Trumpcare just presented by the
    deplorable Republicans!!

    “I would like to suggest that The Signal write and publish articles” about the
    deplorable liar-in-chief who is a fraud and has been caught in lie after lie most recently
    by the FBI and other law enforcement agencies.

    As a proud “deplorable” I salute President Trump and Congress for their attempts to implement their campaign promises which got them elected.

    Dear Signal Contributor, your article is written with great elegance and flow, and it is wonderful to hear your thoughts on this topic. I had some thoughts regarding the content of your article however: Even though it’s true that all news sources should focus on the truth and nothing but, I think it might be a little harsh to criticize the entire Signal for the publication of one article. Yes the protest may not need as much coverage as it got, but a news source has to talk about something, you know? In the future, it might be better to simply search for the relevant articles to your liking and not criticize the mistakes of the Signal as an entity, but over specific topics. Again I truly appreciate your contribution to the Signal’s readers, and look forward to future commentaries from you.
