We want to hear it
When reporting the news, we are committed to fair and unbiased reporting of the facts covering the basics; the who, what, where, when and why. There is a time and a place for opinion and that is the opinion page. The opinion page is where we share our thoughts on a particular subject with you and the opportunity for you to share your thoughts with us and the community.
According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary the definition of opinion is “a view, judgment, or appraisal formed in the mind about a particular matter; belief stronger than impression and less strong than positive knowledge.”
At The Tidewater News we believe everyone has the right to voice their opinion. In fact, we welcome and encourage you to share your view, thoughts and judgement and have reserved space on our opinion page for this purpose. At the same time, we ask that you use common sense, civility and maintain respect for others and their right to disagree. Keep in mind that because you can say something doesn’t always mean you should.
To submit a letter to the editor email us at Editor@TheTidewaterNews.com. Letters should be 250 words or less. Letters must be signed and must include a phone number and mailing address; only the writer’s name and home town will appear in print.
Although we may differ in our opinions, we respect and will protect your right to voice your opinion on The Tidewater News Opinion Page. We hope to hear from you frequently.
