Letter: Good job, ‘Monitor’!
Last week’s election has restored my faith in the intelligence and good judgment of the voting citizens of New Hampshire as evidenced by the return of a Democratic majority to the New Hampshire House.
Of course, good judgment requires reliable information, and most of us rely upon the news media for such information. In my case, sources include WMUR-TV and my favorite, the Concord Monitor.
I wish to congratulate the Monitor for providing in-depth, factual and unbiased coverage of the oftentimes dangerous, and almost always ludicrous antics of Speaker Bill O’Brien and his henchmen in the New Hampshire House.
O’Brien made no bones about his disdain for the Monitor and its reporting, and he undoubtedly applied political pressure wherever and whenever he could, but the Monitor never backed down.
Had the Monitor not stood its ground and reported based upon its solid ethical standards, more damage would have been done by the House over the past two years, and the electorate would not have returned so many Democrats to the House.
Thank you, Concord Monitor – keep up the great work!
