An Internet surfer from Blacksburg is critical of efforts to control
computer pornography, both on a state and federal level.
"This is just another attempt by government to censor and regulate what
we see," he wrote. You need be concerned with this matter as well. Once they
start censoring the Internet, they'll start to want to censor everything.
Please, when running stories like that, take the consequences of your actions
into consideration. The story you ran was slanted towards the opinion that the
Internet should be censored. The Internet shouldn't be censored, the kids
Another viewer from Blacksburg thought our story on Virginia climatologist
Pat Micheals' views on global warming was one-sided.
"The general consensus among climate change researchers...is that ever
increasing outputs of greenhouse gases by industrial societies are affecting
the climate, and while prediction of the impacts will always have uncertainty,
the potential risk to humanity and the biosphere is so great that to ignore the
problem and put off response could be "catastrophic". You do a great disservice
to your viewers by effectively dismissing what may be one of the most critical
issues facing us at the global and local levels. Of course, we do not want to
cause undue anxiety for those living in harm's way (i.e. the floodplain), or
incur unnecessary expenses in our economy. But, on the other hand, if the
community is not presented a complete and balanced picture of the information
that exists, then you are not supporting rational social discourse."
