The open letter to Dan Haley in the Oct. 12 Viewpoints gave me food for thought. Of course reasonable people want to read and ponder various viewpoints. I know that my own thinking changes when I’m exposed to thoughtful discourse. But therein lies the problem. Conservative thought doesn’t seem to exist anymore. Misinformation, disinformation, and conspiracy theories dominate the domain.

Should Wednesday Journal publish articles speculating about stolen elections, criminal immigrants, and “woke” educators indoctrinating children? Wednesday Journal is too fine a community institution to give lies space on the printed page. Besides, West Cook News has already cornered that market.
