Editorial: TrumpCare's big sin

Posted on March 20, 2017 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



By now, the biggest sin of the GOP health care bill is well known: it’s a tax cut bill masquerading as a health care plan. Simply put, it takes health care away from lower-income and middle-income Americans who need it most, and it cuts taxes on the rich and super-rich by $600 billion.

Editorial: Leadership is the difference

Posted on March 20, 2017 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



When I think of the cliché “what a difference a year makes,” my mind races in numerous directions. First to the national elections with Sen. Bernie Sanders on his surprising run against Sec. Hillary Clinton, and to Trump’s embarassing and shocking success against more experienced and better educated rivals, but also, more locally, of the turmoil Porter Hospital faced a year ago and how it has progressed.

Editorial: Media literacy — Bone up, get smart, be savvy

Posted on March 13, 2017 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



In today’s cable news era, Americans will need to become more media savvy to understand the ways facts can be spun and to distinguish between “fake” and “real” news.

In a general sense, fake news has no basis in fact. Trump spread fake news challenging the origin of Obama’s birthplace, for example, to discredit the president’s legitimacy. Trump knew it was blatantly false and thoroughly debunked, but he also knew that wouldn’t matter to his supporters who wanted to believe otherwise.

Editorial: School budgets pass, signifying positive change

Posted on March 9, 2017 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



School budgets across Addison County and in most towns throughout the state received overwhelming approval at this year’s town meetings. According to the Vermont Superintendents Association, voters approved 183 district school budgets, while only 18 were defeated. That’s a noticeable difference compared to significant defeats for school budgets more than a decade earlier.

Editorial: GOP–Heartless and reckless?

Posted on March 9, 2017 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



Initial reports of the GOP’s replacement of President Obama’s Affordable Care Act has ranged from the Washington Post’s characterization of it being “heartless and reckless,” to Republican conservatives vilifying it for being fiscally irresponsible, to Trump labeling it as ‘unbelievably fantastic, so much better than the ruinous Obamacare,’ or something so similarly outrageous that no one takes him seriously.

Editorial: Two issues test Middlebury's future

Posted on March 2, 2017 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



While action items at Middlebury’s Town Meeting may be as uneventful as any in recent memory — a modest budget, no contested races and no at-large questions to debate — two issues continue to overshadow the town’s future: the status of the downtown rail-bridges project and economic development.

Editorial: The media's retort to Trump is not what you expected

Posted on February 27, 2017 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



At a New England-wide newspaper conference in Boston this past weekend, one 90-minute forum featured a panel of five national journalists debating how the press should respond to Trump’s attacks on the fifth estate.

It was not what most Americans would think liberal New England media elites would be saying, even after Trump has spent the past week trying to discredit the media’s work. No, the press was anything but vindictive, nor cowed, but rather questioning and second-guessing the fairness of their coverage. As ever, we are our harshest critics.

Editorial: Of lies, truth and resistance

Posted on February 23, 2017 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



The lies and deliberate untruths told by Trump continue to pile up by the day. One count has listed 132 false statements and positions the president has made (and maintained) in his first 30 days; by Day 100, it will be almost 400. Something that, in America, had heretofore been inconceivable. In the past, our presidents did not so overtly lie to the people. Truth and honesty had always been fundamental to public support. Not with Trump.
