I felt compelled to respond to the Letters To The Editor section, “Protest coverage raises concerns“ (June 24). I would like to remind the writer that freedom of the press is the principle that communication and expression is a right to be exercised freely. It cannot be dictated by an individual’s concept of a written article as to chosen wording, placement and certainly not an assumption of the intent of the staff or editor.
