I was surprised to see a letter to the editor in the Nov. 9 paper from Ernie Reinert in Bismarck. I understand that he doesn't like reading letters from two of my favorite writers, Larry Larsen and Mike Quinn. I also enjoy letters from Henry Lebak. All three are a breath of fresh air.
Reinert states he doesn't read or will not read the letters from Larsen or Quinn, yet he states, "I will not read them. Each of them apparently believes we readers are not capable of forming our own opinions regarding news of interest be it from television, radio or newspapers."
If he really doesn't read these letters, how can he draw the conclusion that the above-mentioned writers are trying to influence others' beliefs? This is Donald Trump speak. Integrity of the Tribune is going down the drain by publishing letters from the public and should be limited, sounds to me, Mr. Reinert, that you have a problem with freedom of speech and the press.
Should the Tribune change its policy, so be it. Otherwise I suggest you write more letters to the editor to enlighten us of your positions that you sound like you get from "Fox and Friends."
