Kass column wasn’t fit to print -- Irene Schmidt

September 22, 2018

I was disappointed and angry to read John Kass’ column, ” Obama hides his nasty cynicism behind a silky tongue,” in last Saturday’s State Journal.

An honest opinion piece is one thing. But this was mean-spirited, offensive and uncivil. It does not qualify to be published anywhere. Media publishers have a responsibility to promote civil discussion. Kass, of the Chicago Tribune, is about as far from a professional journalist as it gets. The State Journal did a disservice by publishing him.
