Letter to the Editor

Why are Roger Harnack’s opinion pieces labeled as news articles instead of being in the editorial section (“Gov. Inslee keeps Eastern Washington locked down,” Cheney Free Press online, Jan. 21, 2021). Terms like “so called” and “teased” are clearly point-of-view and call into the reader’s mind questions about whether journalistic rules and ethics of writing are used in the stories.
How can we trust that facts are being reported with such clearly slanted yellow journalism?
