Every news outlet is criticized for something. Unfortunately, the media is trusted less today than it was many years ago. It’s something Talk of Semmes hopes to overcome.
One of the things people in the community voice their opinions about is the content on our editorial page. Some of the content comes from local people and we are eternally grateful for that. Our local columnists and readers who submit letters to the editor are crucial to the quality of our editorial page and we cannot thank those folks enough.
However, other content is syndicated columns that are submitted to us for free. We put thought into what we put on this page but we are seeking more local content to improve the quality of our hometown newspaper to better serve you — you’re our priority.
