"The Williamsport Sun-Gazette is a good newspaper, which has received numerous local and national awards for its content. I was disappointed to find on the Aug. 28 entertainment page a picture related to MTV that could have passed for "soft" ***********. I encourage the staff at the Sun-Gazette to staying focused on being the newspaper of Williamsport and the surrounding region. You do not have to imitate the NY Daily News to succeed. Instead, be the cut above you strive to be." - Ken Woods-Henderson

It COULD be, that...the S-G figures, promoting the anti-Obama videos will (somehow) cancel-out any "evil" (visited, upon them), from providing soft-core **** to local "conservatives" of Williamsport (and the surrounding region).

Cap, The First Amendment means that the government can't hamper free speech. Customer's of a newspaper are free to complain about the content of said paper as much as they want. The paper can then either ignore or heed such complaints as it sees fit or as it sees economically viable.

Enigma, I agree, and the fact of the matter is, in this VERY liberal society that we've become, s e x sells. We made our bed, now we have to lay in it.

Honestly, this is an issue? This is the writer's biggest problem in the world? It seems some people want the SG to be local, feel-good stories. Didn't we have someone last week who wanted happy news during Little League?

It is about Miley. She is no longer a little girl under contract to Disney. That happens when you are too conservative, people can't wait to break out and act out.

Chuck, Miley and her father are both liberals and they both supported Obama. Her grandfather was a well liked democratic politician in Kentucky. Where does her being too conservative work into that upbringing? Is it because she worked for Disney? Please explain.

Spike2, The writer saw something in the paper that he thought shouldn't have been there. He wrote to let them know what he thinks. Don't you think that's an appropriate subject for a letter to the EDITOR? That's something the editor can do something about. The editor cannot stop crime or change laws or affect a war halfway around the world, but they can change what they print. You may not care about that picture, but the writer did and he said so. It was important to him that the paper he reads not turn into a rag. If you want salacious articles, pick up the Enquirer.

Enigma, seriously? This story was everywhere. By the time it hit the SG, it was old news. The newspaper will always offend someone, no matter the paper. I didn't even see this story. If I saw a picture of Miley I wouldn't bother reading. The paper should change because one person was offended? If they operated under that rule we would receive a blank paper.

LOL, This is so very true, And I'm pretty sure someone would complain about what "might" have been printed. It's human nature.
