STATION EDITORIAL

Posted September 6, 2021

 

This is a station editorial, I’m Randal J. Miller, station president.

In the past year and a half since we’ve all been dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic, I’ve heard more and more people ask this one question:  Who are we to believe?

Politicians on both sides of the aisle give their spin on what we should or shouldn’t do as Americans.  The national news media, in most cases, have a liberal bias so they’re giving opinion not facts.  Even the Center for Disease Control and state health agencies, have been politicized and told what to say or not to say, to fit that party’s messaging at the time.

This editorial has 2 points.

Point # 1, and it’s one we’ve been saying in this space for the past year a half:  As with anything in life, the answer is in the middle.  Instead of listening to the noise from one party or the other, one viewpoint or the other, the answer is a variety of viewpoints that translate into truth.  The COVID-19 virus is very, very real.  It’s dangerous.  And, it can kill you, no matter what your age.  That’s why the answers are choices:  Get the vaccine, mask up, socially distance, and wash your hands.  BUT!  Continue living your life.  

Point # 2 is:  Be very careful about believing everything either side says regarding the COVID-19 pandemic.  As I’ve said for the past year and half, when a politician, no matter what the party, gets control of anything---especially the way we live our lives—it’s very difficult for them to give it back.  Life is about choices.  It’s up to us to make them, not any politician telling us what’s best for us. And, remember, we can make choices next year thru the ballot box.

As I told my daughters growing up, life is about choices.   The important thing to do, is making the right ones.

That’s our opinion, we welcome yours.  Our e-mail address is editorial@randyradio.com.
