Letter to the editor: Summit Daily can do better than Morgan Liddick

Linda Bush

I’m writing to add my voice to that of Alex Beach, whose letter to the editor requested replacement of Morgan Liddick as your conservative columnist (“Please replace Morgan Liddick with another conservative columnist” published Oct. 4 in the Summit Daily News). I too am a progressive who reads conservative opinion writers, including David Brooks, George Will, Bill Kristol, Jennifer Rubin and David Frum. They bring an educated viewpoint, actual facts and thoughtful arguments. In contrast, Liddick simply rants, criticizes the other side based not on what they’ve actually done/said but his own speculations/hypotheticals, and insults those with differing views.

I really like the Summit Daily except for your choice of conservative opinion writer. Thank you for your consideration.
