Conservative reader says paper real deal
Letter to the Editor generic

Dear editor:

This is for the “fish wrap” person. (Note that I am being politically correct). Don’t shoot the messenger. The Coastal Courier only publishes the real news, unlike the NY Times that creates fake news. If you don’t like the news, get out there and change things. If you don’t like how the paper presents the news, start your own paper. 

I have been writing columns and letters to the editor for about 16 years. The Courier has never refused to print what I write, and some of it has been very controversial, and critical of politicians and the government, both locally and nationally. Everyone knows that I am a Constitutional Conservative—far from a liberal. 

It is sad that the Courier has to cut back on the print version of the paper, but it has to make a profit. If you don’t like this, take out a paid ad or encourage local businesses to advertise. If we manufactured newsprint (paper) in the U.S., this cut-back might not have occurred. 

“Fish wrap” person, you need to get out from behind the anonymous phone and write an intelligent letter to the paper. Note the word intelligent. The paper gets a few letters that they can’t publish because the letters do not make sense. The paper encourages local readers to send in letters to the editors that have something important to say. If you have something important to say, sign your name to it.

By the way, if you run out of fish wrap paper, you can always go to McDonald’s and get their fish sandwich—it comes wrapped.
