Dump the Pantagraph in Bloomington-Normal

Our local paper in Bloomington-Normal is absurdly right-wing, featuring columns from idiots like O'Reilly and Cal Thomas. They routinely report on items that fit their agenda and leave out items that don't, earning them the derogatory name The Slantagraph. The other day I couldn't take it anymore and finally discontinued my subscription. Their reasons for supporting Kinzinger and Johnson, two Republicans, were pathetic, especially their claim that Johnson represents the values of District 15. It needs to be said that the Slantagraph doesn't represent a good number of people in this town and deserves to by boycotted.

I am so glad to know that someone out there shares my feelings about the poor excuse of a newspaper B-N has. They continually post inflammatory articles just so they can generate hateful comments from the ignorant people in this town (the smart ones know not to fight with ignorant folks). Reading the comments for ANY story makes my blood pressure go up. Instead of these people hiding in their homes, they should come out and face the world. They might realize that it isn't as bad as they think.
